Oklahoma religion news: Update on Sharia law amendment

A week ago I posted a story about State Question 755, the Oklahoma constitutional amendment that would prohibit courts from relying on international law or Sharia law.  Yesterday, November 22, Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange conducted another hearing to determine whether to grant a preliminary injunction that would further delay implementation of the amendment.  While she did not reach a decision on the preliminary injunction, the judge extended her November 8 temporary restraining order an additional seven days to allow herself time to decide.  Here's an interesting video featuring a couple of the key participants, including Muneer Awad (pictured), executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Oklahoma.
