The US Senate has passed a resolution encouraging the enforcement of Sharia law speech codes in America under which you can be punished if you criticize Islam within hearing distance of a Muslim. If this resolution ever becomes the law of the land, you could be jailed and prosecuted for writing a truthful comment about Islam on your blog or Facebook.
All of us must condemn this resolution and urge the House to reject the identical companion Sharia resolution.
S. Res. 118 was passed earlier this year but we still have time to defeat the House version which is H. Res. 257. Read a copy of the Resolution HERE.
The full title of S. Res. 118 and H. Res. 257 is:
“Condemning hate crime and any other form of racism, religious or ethnic bias, discrimination, incitement to violence, or animus targeting a minority in the United States.”
Just think about how much leeway the vaguely-written words “any form of racism, religious or ethnic bias” would give to an overzealous, globalist federal prosecutor to come after Christian pastors in America who preach truthfully against Islam.
The text of the resolution encourages federal, state and local law enforcement to investigate you and lock you up if you say anything that hurts a Muslim’s feelings.
This concept is one of the central tenets of Sharia law and it is the reason why Muslims set cars on fire, throw bricks through shop windows and cut people’s heads off when a cartoonist draws a picture of Muhammad.
The Senate mindlessly passed this resolution at the urging of Marco Rubio, its chief sponsor. S.Res. 118 was passed by a voice vote so we do not even know which Senators were in favor and which ones opposed it.
The Sharia resolution was written with the help of Emerge USA – a Florida political action committee that was co-founded by an attorney named Khurrum Wahid. Mr. Wahid has been on the federal terror watch list since 2011 due to his ties to Al Qaeda and the Taliban, according to the Miami New Times.
The House version of this Sharia resolution was sponsored by Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-VA) and has four additional GOP co-sponsors: Scott Taylor (VA), Carlos Curbelo (FL), Pete Olson (TX) and John Rutherford (FL).
Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 3:12, “Since we have such hope, we use great boldness of speech.” Boldness of speech means “freedom of speech” in the literal translation and this concept is the backbone of our First Amendment and freedom of speech in America.
This Sharia law resolution written by an Al Qaeda and Taliban-affiliated lawyer takes America in the opposite direction by stifling all speech that is critical of Islam.
Sharia law is the very opposite of everything that America represents and that is why we must condemn this resolution in the strongest terms possible!
