Bill against sharia becomes law in North Carolina

This one was approved without the direct signature of the governor - which does unfortunately make him a coward - but he didn't veto it either:
North Carolina has become the seventh state to explicitly prohibit Sharia law interpretation in court after Gov. Pat McCrory denied vetoing House bill 522.

McCrory, a Republican, refused to sign the bill, entitled "Foreign Law/Protect Constitutional Rights," calling it "unnecessary." However, he also did not actively veto the bill, and therefore the piece of legislation automatically became law on Monday.

The bill, sponsored by six Republican representatives, seeks to protect the constitutional rights of those involved in family court matters, including domestic and child abuse cases, by prohibiting judges from interpreting "foreign law," including the Islamic Sharia law, or a set of legal codes imposed by the teaching of Islam, as well as Jewish law.
Personally, I'm not bothered if this bill bars judges from ruling directly based upon Jewish law, because here in Israel, there's been enough corruption and failure to cut down on husbands (and wives) who refuse to grant proper divorces to the other spouse, and even to prevent religious judges and such from disrespecting the rights of children born to estranged wives to marry legitimately themselves. The whole method by which religious law here is run has practically led to a whole corrupted culture of one spouse spiting the other by refusing to grant a "get" (the special slang for divorce). It shouldn't be the case here, nor in America.

I suppose it's lucky the governor didn't veto the bill, because CAIR tried to persuade him to. Islamophiles are going out of their way to attack this bill because it helps stop their totalitarian greed. It's time to put an end to that.
