Florida Democrats Oppose Bill That Protects Constitutional Rights And Equality

How could anyone oppose a bill that does nothing but protect the Constitutional rights of persons involved? Florida Democrats do (emphasis mine):

The Florida House Civil Justice Subcommittee has passed HB 351, formally titled "Application of Foreign Law in Certain Cases" but more popularly referred to as an "Anti-Sharia Bill." The bill is modeled after legislation proposed by activist groups who claim Islamic law, which discriminates against women and non-Muslims, is stealthily encroaching upon the American judicial system.

The bill prohibits the enforcement by Florida courts of contracts, mediation agreements, or other voluntary settlements if those agreements are based "on any foreign law, legal code, or system that does not grant the parties affected by the ruling or decision the same fundamental liberties, rights, and privileges guaranteed by the state Constitution or the United States Constitution."

The measure, sponsored by Rep. Larry Metz, R-Yalaha, passed on a party-line vote, with all nine Republicans supporting it and the panel's four Democrats opposing.

4 obsidian, a rape because the woman wasn't wearing a burqa, or because "she was a whore deserved it" defense, ought to be interesting. I'm just hoping some of these democreeps are on the receiving end.

7 While I am very much opposed to shari'a, this law and others like are a bad idea because they throw out the baby with the bathwater. Suppose that a Florida woman marries an Egyptian in Florida. The couple go to live in Egypt, where after a while they divorce under Islamic law. The woman returns to Florida, meets a man there, and wishes to marry him. If this law were in fore she would be unable to do so because the Florida courts would be forbidden to recognize her Egyptian divorce.

The proper approach is to consider invalid judgements whose specific circumstances violate our legal principles where one of the parties to an action in a US court raises this objection to the foreign judgment.

8 #7 - the law is specific. It only refuses to recognize foreign laws that violate the Constitution.
