RELIGIOUS FREEDOM - Our problem too!

We need to consider a way to deal with this problem as well ... if we truly want religious freedom in the United States.

The Las Vegas Sun reports on a British court's decision to side with a muslim school girl and her desire to wear traditional Muslim dress to school.

There are however, two things that trouble me in this decision:
  1. The court's use of a treaty with the EU to decide the case, bypassing British sovereignty and people
  2. Our Supreme Court's recent propencity to use international law to decide their cases (even though we've signed no treaties which bind us)
I feel like I'm just blowing in the wind with this but I am deeply concerned about the Supreme Court's willingness to disenfranchise its people on this.
