Can you believe these Tallahassee lawmakers? Last week we rallied hundreds of supporters to the State Capitol in Tallahassee to oppose the "anti-foreign law" bill or SB1360. On the same day, a Senate Subcommittee was meeting to discuss and vote on the proposed law. To our shock, the committee, denied our delegates the right to speak.
They're so arrogant, they didn’t even bother to listen to what we had to say about this bill that, if passed, will take away our religious freedom. They actually spent more time laughing at themselves trying to pronounce our names than focusing on hearing why we don’t want this bill to pass. Without discussion, debate or input, the committee took less than a minute to vote and pass the bill. Just watch the video below to see for yourself.
The Florida House version of the bill has already passed, the Senate version or SB1360 will go to a floor vote this week, UNLESS YOU URGE YOUR SENATOR TO OPPOSE IT, click here to act.
Please join me and other supporters that are fighting to uphold the Constitution and defend our communities. Now’s our time to show these lawmakers that we're hundreds of thousands strong state-wide and we WILL use our collective resources to see that this bill never sees the light of day. Let's remind them that they took an oath to uphold the Constitution, not violate it. Let's advise them that SB1360 was never intended to protect American law from the threats of "foreign" (shariah) law, this bill is intended to marginalize and target the Muslim community.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! If you are living in Florida, MAKE SURE YOU CLICK HERE TO SEND A LETTER TO YOUR SENATOR URGING THEM TO OPPOSE SB1360.
