Quote of the Moment: Repealing Karma

There’s a bill pending in Arizona – HB 2582 – that prohibits the courts from using “religious sectarian law” in their decisions. It’s one of those bills that’s trying to prevent “creeping Sharia Law” from taking over our country. It defines religious sectarian law as:

… any statute, tenet or body of law evolving within and binding a specific religious sect or tribe. Religious sectarian law includes Sharia Law, Canon Law, Halacha and Karma but does not include any law of the United States or the individual states based on Anglo‑American legal tradition and principles on which the United States was founded.

Um … Karma isn’t a body of law or anything. It’s a religious principle that says that our deeds will influence our path along the wheel of life, death and reincarnation.

In Hindu myths, even the gods are subject to Karma. There’s really nothing you can do about it. It’s like trying to repeal the law of gravity.
