    Given that a thread about Sharia law has very quickly turned into a discussion of beer and hot chicks, I think the US is safe from that particular menace.

    I meant to vote no but i accidently voted yes.
    To answer the question. Hell no. Are you serious? There is no way Sharia law will ever come to the US. If you actually think thats a possibility then you need to get your head checked.

    Oh, thanks for the clarification. You gave me a fake name I never heard of and cleared it up by giving me a real name I never heard of.

    Also, be prepared to be mocked for watching True Blood.

    You are forgetting that the SCOTUS could undermine the Constitutional protections against application of Sharia Law. A State or several States could adopt Sharia Law and then yes Sharia Law would be active in the US. Then without the nullifying of it we would have a situation of some people in States doing there best to stop it in their States and those would be targeted by the more radical Muslims by threats or harassment.

    But the real point is that congressional and/or presidential action would precede this, and I have serious doubts that this would be the case.

    again tolerance and acceptance are very different than throwing away rights, freedoms, liberties and the constitution

    if you think people are vigilant against christian influence right now id say thats because theres more wide spread influence, wouldnt you agree?

    im not worried about it on the left right or center, no logical reason to

    SO I ask, do you fear Sharia Law and think its a possibility here in the US.

    I do not.
    I voted no.But at the same time there are some idiot judges out there who will cite it Sharia law and laws should be put in place to ensure that judges only cite American law. There are only a handful of cases of judges citing sharia law but one of those cases involves a woman being denied a restraining order.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
