Muslim Group Seeks to Ban Sharia Law in America

The debate over Sharia law in America is taking some interesting twists and turns.
In Oklahoma, courts are debating whether citizens have the right to ban Sharia law. And in Michigan, a group of Muslims have actually come out in strong opposition to Islamic law in America.
In the case of Oklahoma, a 2010 ballot initiative put a stop to considerations of Islamic laws in making state court decisions. The measure, which passed by a 70 percent margin, was challenged by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). The group claimed that the initiative was a direct violation of the Constitution’s Establishment Clause. ABC News has more:
Now, a panel of judges from the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals will decide whether a lower court was right to block the ballot
