Both ways

I was a bit confused by this sentence

Once again, Republican politicians are pandering to the lowest, most bigoted element of society with an unnecessary, clearly discriminatory bill that would ban shariah law from Pennsylvania courts.

Followed by this sentence

Shariah law is not currently being used by Pennsylvania courts, and in fact the US Constitution specifically bans such a thing and has for centuries. But when you're pandering to haters and bigots, logic goes right out the window.

So that would suggest that Pennsylvania having laws in line with the federal Constitution is hateful and bigoted? Or is the Constitution itself hateful and bigoted for not allowing Sharia law to be used? I mean, when the Feds outlaw some civil rights violation, one usually doesn't get angry at states harmonizing their laws with the one passed by Congress.
