On election day, the state of Oklahoma passed by a whopping margin of 70-30 a referendum that amended the state constitution to prohibit courts from the consideration of Sharia or international law in their verdicts.
Stephen Colbert applauds this action.

But now a federal judge has placed a temporary restraining order preventing the amendment from taking effect pending a hearing on November 22.
The only conclusion that I can come to is that the devious jihadists have infiltrated the federal judiciary in Oklahoma as a first step in their plan to impose Sharia law on the entire US.
The actual content of the case against Oklahoma seems pretty bizarre.
I wonder though how the part about “international law” was actually officially worded. Article VI of the U.S. constitution states (emphasis mine):
Yes, it has long been recognized that properly ratified international treaties are binding on the US. This really bugs some of those who think that the US should always be able to act unilaterally.
