Say What?! Your thoughts on Sharia Law
Sharia Law by definition from the Britannica is the fundamental religious concept of Islam. Right now, it's at the center of debate on whether or not it can be used in a court of law in the United States. We went looking for you to see how many of you can even define the law. Here's what we found:
"I don't even know," said Magen Williamson.
"No," said Brooklyn Pinkston.
"Laws that Muslim people kind of stick by," said Jenna Hooten.
Currently, some states in are attempting to ban Sharia Law. Let's see if some of you can name a few.
"I wouldn't know," said Pinkston.
"Massachusetts andSouth Carolina," said Williamson.
South Carolina is on the list as well as Texas and Oklahoma. A few more states make the list, but we want to know if it suprises you that these states are trying to ban this law.
"Humanity just kind of has like a trend of trying to, band things. Which is not always a bad thing, but I'm not surprised," said Hooten.
"No it's not surprising, definitely not, especially everything that's been going on over there," said Williamson.
In terms of banning the law, do you agree with completely getting rid of it in the United States?
"Anything that takes away somebody's value as a human being, I don't support that," said Hooten.
"I think people should be able to believe what they want to believe and abide by what they want to believe," said Pinkston.
