In it, a wife sought a restraining order against her husband, alleging that he repeatedly beat and sexually assaulted her. The judge denied her request, holding that the defendant did not form the criminal intent necessary to commit the crime, because his genuine religious beliefs dictated that he was entitled to sexual relations upon demand. The ruling was wrong—both under state law and Sharia—and, not surprisingly, the New Jersey Appellate Court reversed it in 2010." - The True Story of Sharia in American Courts | The Nation
    Luckily in that decision was reversed in time before the guy decided to beat the hell out of that woman or worse.


    There are actually tons of cases involving Sharia and other forms of religious law in the US, and if we allow people the freedom to contract, it can never be any other way. There's no particular reasons to single out Sharia for special negative treatment when it's currently treated exactly the same as other sources of religious authority in the US.
    As long as it doesn't violate US law you should be able to impose any terms you want in a contract and those terms are written in that contract. A judge rulling on that contract would only be ruling on that contract..
    "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"

    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

    The problem is recognizing the threat that Sharia Law means. Do they know that it is not consistent their beliefs as liberals? Do they understand that a adherent of Sharia Law being a member of a "minority" doesn't mean that they should be included a special protected group since neo-nazis are a minority also and liberals would not support them (I hope). How soon would the "left" see it as a true threat? When the Sharia adherents are rioting in the streets?

    I do not believe it is an immediate threat nor do I believe it is a near term threat it is something that could occur after 20 years of idulging the existence of Sharia.

    Well... yes, but usually when you're seeing religious law in court it's because of some provision in a contract stipulating adherence to religious law, which means the judge is forced to address whatever religion is at issue. The article I cited has some examples. The case you were referring to is obviously a different kind of issue, but, again, this sort of thing does come up in intent determinations in crimlaw as related to a number of cultures. I commented on this a while back, but the first example that comes to my mind was a case involving a first generation Chinese immigrant who adhered to an animist tradition. I'll look it up when I get home if you're interested. My point, of course, is that Sharia isn't being imposed on US courts, and currently gets the exact same treatment as every other religious or cultural authority. Obviously the occassional judge is going to make a bad ruling, but that can happen whether or not any religion is involved at all.

    No ...although that will not stop Muslims in the U.S in their communities from practicing it here behind closed doors.

    thats meaningless and is true of all people and religions

    I dont care what people practice behind close doors, US laws rules and if your activity is illegal and you are caught or someone presses charges thats that

    Three-Star General: Muslim Brotherhood Has Infiltrated Department of Defense

    ANN ARBOR, MI – U.S. Army Lieutenant General (Ret.) William "Jerry" Boykin, in a recent World Net Daily radio interview, confirmed that people with high security clearances connected to the Muslim Brotherhood hold important positions in every major federal agency including the Pentagon and the Department of Defense.

    The Muslim Brotherhood is a radical Islamist organization that has vowed the destruction of America from within.

    Click here to hear radio clip.

    General Boykin has the credentials to back up his conclusions. He was one of the original members of the U.S. Army's Delta Force which he ultimately led in combat operations. He also served a tour in the CIA during which time he participated in clandestine operations throughout the world. He served his last four years in the Army as Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence.
