    Your assumption is that the Christian religion would have considerable influence still under the scenario.

    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
    may be true of all religions but other religions dont practice Sharia law.....and as for pressing charges...one has to be caught first...and when it happens in your Muslim community/Mosque no one will say a thing. It has already been stated that it happens here....but again...dont feel that it will ever make it into our laws...well maybe I should not use the word ever...but not anytime in the near future...

    The OP is whether or not would it be reasonably possible for Sharia Law to be accepted in the US not weather it has been accepted in one case or another already by SCOTUS or made law now by Congress and not vetoed by the President.

    I was a labor and delivery nurse for 22 years....we delt with many woman that practice Sharia law here in the states.....in their communities.....how did we know this...because they told us when they were in labor on what was acceptable and not acceptable with their laws.....and with Dr. patient confidence unless a danger to them or their child they could not be reported. Some woman were even American born woman that married men that practiced this law and took it on as their own.

    I am not suggesting that liberals are stupid or necessarily ignorant; I do suggest that they are underestimating the potential threat that Sharia Law implies. Sharia is more than an ecclesiastical law such as Cannon Law with the Catholic Church it is an all encompassing law where the State is bound by and is subordinate to it. The threat is not like that with the Evangelical Christians which at worst would send people to prison for Sodomy. Where is Sharia it is death as the sentence. Where the Evangelical Christians would want Christianity to be the predominant religion and philosophy in particular their sects especially be so. Not only does Sharia adherents want to be the predominant religious law and philosophy they wish to be the only religion and philosophy and others are to be eliminated by any means necessary.

    I have a problem with the stance you take on this matter. A stance I interpret as meaning, you don't think Islamism is a threat, you don't give a damn if creeping Jihad makes it's way into America or our government at any level and to any degree except at a 9/11 degree of death and damage and that any efforts to take precautions against Islamism is silly and bigoted.
