The bill proposing that it be unlawful in Tennessee to craft state laws based on shariah law has been amended by the bill’s creators to eliminate any direct reference to Islam.  See the news story here and a previous post about the brouhaha here.  The changes make the bill what it should be: an anti-terror bill, not something that can be construed as xenophobic, anti-immigrant, or political endorsement (or attack) of a specific religion.
