The founder of a group that has voiced concern about the growing influence of radical Islam within the U.S. asked Oklahoma's governor on Friday to sign a bill that would prohibit foreign laws from being enforced in state courtrooms.
"It is not to say that all Muslims are a threat," said Frank Gaffney, founder and president of the Center for Security Policy. "It is the case, however, that those who embrace and submit to Sharia and insist on, according to its doctrine, making the rest of us submit to it, are a danger."
Gaffney served as a deputy assistant defense secretary during the 1980s in the Reagan administration. He said he met with the governor during a stop at the state Capitol that also included talking with the recently formed counterterrorism caucus of the Legislature.
