The Wages of Sin

The tribe of right wingnuts in the Oklahoma state house continues to amaze normal people with the utter fatuousness and malevolence of the conservative vision for America. Latest case in point, one state senator Rex Duncan, a Republican naturally, who has just introduced a ballot measure to

 prohibit courts from considering international or sharia law when deciding cases. He says the measure is a "preemptive strike" against "liberal judges" who want to "undermine those founding principles" of America.
The "Save Our State" amendment would require Oklahoma courts to use state and federal laws only when ruling, and Duncan explained on MSNBC today that he wants to ensure "that our courts are not used to undermine those founding principles, and turn Oklahoma into something that our founding fathers and our great grandparents wouldn't recognize."
He said that "Oklahomans recognize that America was founded on Judeo-Christian principles," and that his measure "is a pre-emptive strike to make sure that liberal judges don't take to the bench in an effort to use their position to undermine" those principles by considering international or sharia law.

Duncan continues that it's not just a possibility that judges will do this, but a reality. "This is a war to save America," he says.

I've concluded that I must have really offended the Almighty to be punished by being surrounded by thousands of people who think just like this retard. The Wages of Sin can be dear indeed.
