    Newt calls for Federal ban on Sharia law

    Former House speaker Newt Gingrich has proposed a federal law to ban the use of Sharia law in the United States, in a speech Saturday that also called for the de-funding of the Department of Health and Human Services.

    Speaking to the Values Voters Summit Saturday, Gingrich told an enthusiastic audience that the US should have a law preventing judges from using traditional Muslim law, known as Sharia, when adjudicating cases. He also suggested the law allow for judges, including apparently Supreme Court judges, to be unseated if they attempt to use Muslim law.

    "I am opposed to any effort to impose Sharia in the United States, and we should have a federal law that says under no circumstances in any jurisdiction in the United States will Sharia be used, in any court, to apply to any judgment made about American law," Gingrich said to loud applause.

    "And we should make clear to Justice [Stephen] Breyer and Justice [Elena] Kagan, who both seem confused on this topic, that no judge will remain in office who tries to use Sharia law to interpret the US Constitution," Gingrich added.

    Someone tell Newt and his enthusiastic audience that there is a thing called the constitution.

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances
    Newt should just go ahead and tell us what he really wants. A Federal ban on Islam all together. Newt is a wack job.

    The constitution already bans it. Try reading it from time to time.

    this is called a political move

    Sharia law is in no way or form happening in the United States

    doing this was to score points with his base by scaring them into thinking Sharia Law has any form in this country. We dont have Sharia law you idiot Gingrich fanatics, we have a constitution that forbids the establishment of religion

    To inform. I guess it didn't work. Newt is playing on fear and ignorance to get elected. While ignoring the fact that the constitution already bans such things. Anyone who thinks that one day we will wake up to Sharia law as the law of the land. Is a paranoid islamophobe that's scared of their own shadow.

    Noone wants muslims here in any fashion. Newt was just stating the obvious.

    No one? Muslims are here and have been for a while if you like it or not. Newsflash!!!!! No matter how much you hate muslims the constitution forbids them from establishing Sharia Law. Unless the majority of the states amend the constitution to do so. Good luck getting that to happen. The same reason why we don't stone people to death for breaking the ten commandents.
