Well, I feel safer. Do you feel safer? We should all feel safer given the latest valiant effort by state Rep. Leo Berman, R-Tyler, to keep us all safe from the phantom menace of Sharia law and its impending attack on the Texas court system.
Rep. Berman took to the Texas House floor Wednesday afternoon and successfully added his anti-Sharia law legislation as an amendment to a judiciary matters bill that was approved in the lower chamber and has been tossed to the Senate for its consideration.
The anti-Sharia measure was repeatedly pushed by Rep. Berman during the regular legislative session, but it didn’t get past the Legislature and on to the governor’s desk for his signature. Never one to let an opportunity to stoke an unfounded fear go to waste, Rep. Berman is using the special session of the Legislature to take another shot at Muslim Americans.
The difference this time around is that he was actually up front about how his amendment intended to ban Sharia law, a point he appeared to try to avoid during the regular legislative session.
Rep. Berman also told the House on Wednesday that 10 states already adjudicate court cases based on Sharia law. He hasn’t identified which states those are. (Surprise.)
We’ll keep you updated on what action the Senate takes on the measure. After all, perhaps you’re also getting tired of sleeping with one eye open and constantly spraying ourselves with Sharia repellant.

I feel safer already. Thanks, Leo!
People like Berman really are like Don Quixote, eager to attack imaginary problems but oblivious to real ones.
I can definitely understand why this is seemingly a waste of time, especially since there are so many real and current problems in our path. I can also see how this is being pushed by the Christian Right whackadoos…some of whom wish the only laws we enforced were Mosaic in nature, i.e. the 10 commandments. I’m not sure about the rest of you, but I’d like any and all laws based on ANY religion made illegal at a Federal level (as if the 1st Amendment didn’t already do this). Why is this such a bad thing? Just because the Christians (who I really can’t stand, mind you) are getting there first, we see it as discrimination against Muslims. Well, if you’d ever seen a documentary called “The Third Jihad”, you might be singing a different tune. There is a growing population of Muslims that have a detailed and systematic plan to establish a GLOBAL Muslim state…and they don’t plan on doing it with bombs or terrorist attacks (alone)…they plan on using their wealth (establishing banks), education (establishing Muslim Schools), establishing mosques & “outreach” community centers, and just plain breeding us out over time. This may take a couple hundred years…but it is their plan none the less. If we let ANY laws be put into place that are based on ANY particular religion…well, our ancestors may wake up one day and find themselves surrounded. Conclusion…these laws won’t make a difference in the future…if they succeed in their plan, in the future, they will just elect Muslims to political office and change rewrite the law… Bottom line…humans will not evolve to the next level of existence and enlightenment until ALL religions have gone the way of the dodo.
You mean down the toilet?
OMG where do I get the Sharia repellent?!?!
You know. Leo Berman shows up here so much in one form or another, it occurs to me that we should rename him like G.W. Bush renamed his associates in The White House. I vote this Russian name:
Eez Soviet hammer. Eez Soviet apartment building. Eez Soviet aftershave. I had some Soviet aftershave one time. My wife bought me a big bottle of it in Moscow. Translated literally into English, its name was “Disco Aftershave.” Let’s put it this way. The people at Polo and Aqua Velva had almost nothing to fear. I used it a couple of times and quit because I got concerned that the united workers of the world might have used something like benzene as a base rather than ethyl alcohol.
