If Florida courts accept provisions of Islamic Sharia law or other foreign laws and legal codes which are inconsistent with American laws it will undermine public policies enacted by our representative form of government and change our value system. Please send your email to Florida Senate leaders.

Florida bills HB 1209 and SB 1360 titled Application of Foreign Law are intended to prohibit courts from considering certain provisions of foreign laws including Islamic Sharia law.  There are numerous provisions of Sharia law which are inconsistent with Florida statutes.  Sharia law authorizes polygamy, pedophilia and perpetuates violence towards women and death for dishonoring the faith.  HB 1209 and companion bill SB 1360 are significant legislative starts in the right direction to protect Americans from the intrusion of some provisions of Sharia law which are inconsistent with American laws.   Click here to read the full bill.

GREAT NEWS!  HB 1209 just passed the full House of Representatives (March 1st 1:30 PM) by a vote of 92 to 24.  The vote history is posted below following the call to action link.  Your emails made a difference.

SB 1360 has returned to the full Budget Committee after being approved on February 28, 2012 in the Budget Subcommittee on Criminal and Civil Justice Appropriations by a vote of 5-2.

  The Honorable Representative Larry Metz has championed HB 1209 titled Application of Foreign Laws in Certain Cases through all of the Florida House of Representative committees.  If enacted, HB 1209 would prohibit certain provisions of foreign laws including Sharia law from being considered by Florida courts if they do not afford the same liberties, rights and privileges guaranteed by the Florida and US Constitution.   Thanks to Representative Larry Metz’s outstanding leadership and determination HB 1209 was approved by the full House of Representatives on March 1, 2012 to approve HB 1209 with a bi-partisan vote of 92-24.
