A lawyer just made an incredible claim about murders committed by Muslims.

Hawaiian lawyer Neal Katyal claimed that murders are a part of the Islamic faith due to the fact they are “honor killings”.

Even worse, he wants President Trump to exclude those who practice “honor killings” from his executive travel ban, and for a strange reason.

Katyal claims it is necessary to allow Islamic individuals to carry out their “honor killings” due to the fact it is a religious matter which may be protected under First Amendment freedoms.

Breitbart News reports:

The lawyer representing the State of Hawaii in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit today has stated the collection of data with regards honor killings should be removed from President Trump’s Executive Order in order to “pass constitutional muster”.

In his arguments, Neal Katyal stated today that the collection of such data as outlined by the Executive Order 13780 contravenes the Establishment Clause, in the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion…”

In doing so, Katyal appears to be making the case that honor killings — murder committed in the name of restoring a family’s dignity following discouraged behaviour within fundamentalist homes — is in itself Islamic.

Neal Katyal is essentially trying to justify murder as a religious necessity.

“Honor killings” is one subject which has already been covered in previous executive orders – and it very clearly states they are not allowed.

Breitbart News writes:

For Katyal to advance such an argument may also be detrimental to the public understanding of honor killings in the United States.

Executive Order 13780 mentions honor killings only once, in the section (11) entitled “Transparency and Data Collection”, where it states:

To be more transparent with the American people and to implement more effectively policies and practices that serve the national interest, the Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Attorney General, shall, consistent with applicable law and national security, collect and make publicly available the following information…

…(iii) information regarding the number and types of acts of gender-based violence against women, including so-called ‘‘honor killings,’’ in the United States by foreign nationals…

And in his defensive statement, Katyal claimed President Trump was acting against the Constitution by enacting his executive order to halt immigration from certain countries, primarily those of Islam, and preventing the Islamic people from practicing their “honor killings” on American soil.

Katyal proposed two resolutions for President Trump that would solve the issue of “honor killings” being outlawed – and neither result in punishment for “honor killings”.

Breitbart News continued:

Katyal responded at length, stating: “I think there’s two paths that the President could take in order to pass constitutional muster.

“One is the way that our founders thought, Article 1 Section 8 which, as Congress in the driver’s seat with respect to immigration, passes a statute. as Justice Alito said, when Congress passes a statute it’s much less likely to discriminate. It is 535 people versus one, which is why his Mandel point is so problematic. That’s number one.

“Second thing the president could do, or the kinds of things or some of the kinds, removing some of things that the district court found led an objective observer to say that this this discriminates.

This just goes to show how truly careless some liberals are.

Just the mere fact that one individual would consider legalizing murder as a religious practice is outrageous, and thankfully, President Trump will not allow it to occur.

Can you believe someone would be so crazed as to allow people to be murdered in the name of religion?
