    The state of North Carolina has taken a step that many other states have taken to ensure that the US Constitution and the constitution of the state are the laws that are applied in courts, not the laws of any foreign cultures.

    It recently passed a measure aimed at keeping Islamic Sharia law from being enforced in state courts, especially family law.

    Similar laws have been passed in Arizona, Kansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Tennessee. A federal judge ruled the Oklahoma law unconstitutional because it discriminated against a certain religion without a compelling state interest.

    The NC bill’s authors hope to have avoided that problem by making the language of the bill so that it applies to any foreign laws, not specifically mentioning Sharia.
