Bob Smietana writes in The Tennessean:

A proposed Tennessee law would make following the Islamic code known as Shariah law a felony, punishable by 15 years in jail.

Actually, by my reading of the bill, it is a bit more complicated than that. It involves designating certain organizations as Shariah promoting bodies. After that designation, if somone is found supporting or promoting such an organization, then they could be prosecuted.

State Sen. Bill Ketron, R-Murfreesboro, and state Rep. Judd Matheny, R-Tullahoma, introduced the same bill in the Senate and House last week. It calls Shariah law a danger to homeland security and gives the attorney general authority to investigate complaints and decide who's practicing it...

Very interesting... READ IT ALL
