There is no need for a Judge in any court of law in America to use any religion law in a decision. Many say that the American laws are based on the Ten Commandments and that may be so but Congress has the only ability to make laws of which all Americans are subject to. A religious group may agree with the law or they minght disagree but they, as individuals, have to comply with the laws. Should a religious group have the position that their religious law allows them to do an action that the American laws does not (i.e. stoneing, whipping, pural marriage, child marriage) they are free to take their group to another country that will allow them to practice the way they feel. While in America, they are going to follow the American way or be accused and tried for breaking the laws in a court that does not allow religion to influence the Judges nor juries.
