    Tashima Crudup, a married Muslim mother of five who grew up in Baltimore's foster care system and wanted to give back some of the love she got, was turned down as a foster mother because she doesn't allow pork in her house....

    Although Crudup told the caseworker she would accommodate the child's beliefs no matter what religion, the ACLU accused the agency of deciding "that this placement could potentially infringe on the religious, cultural, and personal rights of any child placed in the home."

    This was also interesting..

    The caseworker asked questions about Crudup's religion, dietary habits and living arrangements. Crudup lives with Andre Moore, a 38-year-old truck driver who is not legally her husband. However, she told the Baltimore Sun that they are married in the eyes of their religion.

    Not sure how this works in the USA, but here in the Dominican Republic she has NO inheritance rights if he should die or he just leaves. He would be liable for the child support for children from the union. the Law here is the children inherit 50% and the wife inherits 50%. We have no provision for Common Law unions(concubine)

    Apparently being married in the eyes of our religon, would not be much help if she lived in Sharjah emirate under shariah law.

    http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2010/apr/22/emirates-police-ask-marriage-license-please/

    Police in the conservative Sharjah emirate are hunting for unmarried couples sharing the same address.

    The door-to-door search is the latest effort by Sharjah authorities to enforce Islamic codes in their enclave, which borders far more freewheeling Dubai. The campaign, detailed Thursday in local media, follows a police report that a couple was arrested for living together out of wedlock.

    Violators may face jail and deportation. But Shariah, or Islamic law, remains on the books and includes possible sentences of lashings.

    The UAE outlaws unmarried couples from living together, but Sharjah enforces the strictest rules. The emirate _ one of seven that comprise the UAE _ also imposes a blanket ban on alcohol

    So this agency would rather leave a child in a foster home than keep them from swine? Ignorance scares me.

    What religion has eating swine as one of there tenants?

    My understanding of Shariah law is that it serves as a theocracy, a merging of church (mosque) and state in the countries that agree to it. I think that maybe some people in remote countries, that are not Islamic states, still live under this law.

    I dont know what MD's protocol is for fostering, but I know a lot of single people in other states who have been allowed to foster. I don't think that they can deny her based on not being married (acc. to this govt).

    ----
    "Muslim or Islamic law, both civil and criminal justice as well as regulating individual conduct both personal and moral. The custom-based body of law based on the Quran and the religion of Islam. Because, by definition, Muslim states are theocracies, religious texts are law, the latter distinguished by Islam and Muslims in their application, as Sharia or Sharia law."

    Not aware of any non islamic states embracing Sharia law for non muslims, as it is based in the Quran. Am aware of some islamic states applying sharia to non muslims.

    As far as my comment on the law Ankhur
    This would have nothing to do with an African American Sister, but everything to do with a Muslim. Sharia law does not recognize living together. Agreed not all Muslims live by sharia law. but they are always trying to get it recognized in the countries they migrate to.
    See recent cases in Europe, and Canada.
