1) If you are doing nothing wrong you have nothing to fear.

Conservatives are jubilant that last Friday, as reported by the AP, a bill designed to prevent Kansas courts or government agencies from making decisions based on Islamic or other foreign legal codes has cleared the state Legislature. The measure goes next to Republican Gov. Sam Brownback, who hasn’t said whether he’ll sign or veto the measure.
Though the bill was prompted by concerns about Islamic Shariah law being used in U.S. courts, it does not specifically mention Shariah. Instead, the bill says that Kansas’ courts, administrative agencies or state tribunals can’t base rulings on any foreign law or legal system that would not grant the parties the same rights guaranteed by state and U.S. constitutions.
The Kansas legislature must not have known about the Lacey Act — a Congressional law that makes it a federal offenseto violate any foreign law when it comes to fish, wildlife, or plants.
