Mel Watt (D-NC) says that Sharia Law in the US is a “religious principle” and that it would be unconstitutional to deny someones right to vote for their religious principles. (via Jihadwatch)
One of his constituents writes on July 26th, 2007:
To the Honorable Representative of the State of North Carolina:
In order to assure the protection of the American People and the preservation of our Constitution, I think at this point in American history it would be a good idea to introduce legislation like the following:
“In no instance shall the practice of Islamic Sharia law be established or permitted within any state or territory under the jurisdiction of the United States of America.”
And Congressman Watt’s response came on Sept 14, 2007
Thank you for your email about the establishment and practice of Islamic Sharia law in the United States.
The First Amendment of the United States Constitution guarantees the free exercise of religious principles. Therefore, I believe that the language proposed in your email would be unconstitutional and I would not support it.
I appreciate your input on this issue. If I or my staff can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Melvin L. Watt
It is unbelievable to me to see the incompetence of so many men and women in Washington. If I were the constituent, I would write to Mel Watt and ask him a couple questions regarding his refusal to condemn Sharia Law in the US.
- Would you support the subjugation of women under the constitution of Sharia Law?
- Would you support stonings of young men and women for adultery and other so-called anti-Islamic crimes?
- Would you support imprisoning anyone who desecrates the Koran or writes cartoons about Mohammed?
- Would you support the imprisonment of political dissenters across the United States?
- Would you support the death penalty for apostasy?
Watt either doesn’t have a clue what Sharia Law is, or he’s just another appeasing far-left pacifist of the most violent cult on earth, who thinks that “well, is the people want Sharia, then I support it”
These people make me sick.
