Wasted effort

To the editor:

The May 12 Journal-World has an article on the state Legislature regarding tax cuts, Sharia law and the U.N. Isn’t it clear enough that giving tax breaks to large companies and financial institutions does not create jobs? Does anyone remember that the trickle-down theory has not worked? It is time for the pendulum to swing back toward average working people and time to insist on taxing the wealthy, not the 99 percent.

Later in the article, we learn that the Senate approved a bill banning Kansas courts from basing rulings on foreign laws or legal systems. In Kansas?! Are there any counties facing a swing toward “foreign” or Sharia law? None? Then why are our esteemed legislators wasting their precious time on such rubbish? Thank you, Sen. Tim Owens, for describing the bill as unnecessary, and thank you, Sen. Francisco, for voting against the bill.

And then there is U.N. Agenda 21. Described as “a covert plot to destroy the American way of life through extreme environmentalism, social engineering and global political control,” it sounds like we must prepare for Armageddon. And the invasion from space aliens is just around the corner. They’re out there! I’m sure!

Good letter, but those being addresses are uninterested in the facts. We are in the age of magic and ideology.

The US constitution trumps all law, including the states. It would trump Sharia law, that is if the conservatives don't tear it to bits, with their "Christian" nation crud.

Most people don't understand Sharia law. It is the same as the laws of Moses and the true Gospel of Jesus. So what is the fear? Muslims believe that God has told mankind one thing all through the ages, and that is: He is the creator, protector, master of the Universe and the Day of Judgement. He needs say to a thing "Be" and it is and everything belongs to Him. Isn't this what is stated in the Old Testament? That is what was stated in the Psalms of David and the Qur'an. So Sharia Law repeats these things and perfects the religion He wants mankind to practice. How does this threaten Kansans?

Besides, if there was Sharia Law in the USA or in Kansas, it would only apply to Muslims and not those who aren't. Sharia Law is based upon logic and the necessity to keep mankind clean and as close to perfect as can be. There is nothing new that hasn't been revealed in the Old Testament.
