Missouri's Dem Governor Vetoes anti-Sharia Law Legislation
The rot goes deep.
Missouri's Democrat governor Jay Nixon was presented with SB 267 which simply said that any foreign law would have no standing in Missouri courts, mirroring a similar bill in effect in Kansas.
It passed with bi-partisan (if mostly Republican) support in the legislature..and Governor Nixon vetoed it.
"This legislation seeks to solve a problem that does not exist, while creating the very real problem of jeopardizing Missouri's families' ability to adopt children from foreign countries. Here in Missouri, we believe in strengthening families and encouraging adoption. By placing additional barriers between couples who want to adopt and children who need loving homes, Senate Bill 267 is quite simply out of step with these basic values."
*chuckle* Why would adoptions not compliant with existing U.S. and Missouri law be allowed anyway?
What Governor Nixon is really doing is helping out his pals at CAIR, the Wahhabi funded Muslim Brotherhood front group who were prompt in giving this dhimmi a nice pat on the head.
The photo above? Governor Nixon accepting a Qu'ran from Faizan Syed , the Director of CAIR Missouri who wants to prosecute Americans who insult Islam based on sharia law.
Speaking of being out of step with America's basic values, I doubt Governor Nixon has ever read the Qu'ran or looked at what sharia law actually consists of.
This veto is a disgrace to anyone who reveres our Constitution and the freedoms it enshrines.

He doesn't deserve it, but be civil.
