In 2011 State Senator Gerald Allen proposed a "Sharia Law Amendment" to the State Senate that would prohibit Alabama Courts from making any legal decisions on the bases of Sharia Law. In 2013 the amendment was renamed The Alabama Foreign Laws in Court Amendment and will be on the state ballot in November 2014. See recent Sharia law news
More stances on this issue
Sharia law is against civil rights. It should not be tolerated anywhere. 5 years ago from a Republican in Muscle Shoals, AL
Courts should only recognize the US Constitution. 5 years ago from a Republican in Birmingham, AL
This is beyond ridiculous. The constitution outlines clearly our system of laws. Passing sophomoric laws only discourages investment in AL. 5 years ago from a Green in Shannon, AL
Yes, but this should not even be an issue. 5 years ago from a Republican in Fosters, AL
This is a bull item created to make it look like elected officials are actually working. A waste of time as no Sharia Laws have even been suggested. However, as a Christian the inclusion of Christian law is also unconstitutional!. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Maylene, AL
This is a non decision. I don't believe that a court has attempted to use sharia law in a ruling. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Northport, AL
Has nothing to do with US law, our present laws need to be updated. 5 years ago from a Green in Phenix City, AL
Not sure what sharia law is. 5 years ago from a Republican in Tuskegee Institute, AL
Yes if it is not the law of the land, no if the voters institute it to their jurisdiction. 5 years ago from a Republican in Huntsville, AL
This issue is ridiculous in the extreme. If any party is in line with Sharia law it is the republican party and they just do not realize it. 5 years ago from a Green in New Castle, AL
