im glad the poll results show the reasonable people outnumber the unreasonable and I believe there were 2 or 3 admit accidental votes for yes
The question is absolutely absurd.
Imagine an instant what it would take for this delusional paranoic nightmare to be realized:
The constitution, the bill of rights, the declaration of independence - SCRAPPED
The Islamists gain control the presidentcy, government, armed forces, and all the security apparatus.
The majority of americans convert to Islam, or 400 million muslims illegals immigrate to the US right under the noses of them god fearing christians with guns.
The tens of millions of armed rednecks all get drunk at the same time and their weapons are taken away from them while they are passed out.
Utter and complete nonsense, believed by the paranoid, the insecure, the ignorant, and the bigotted.
My Karma ran over your Dogma.
can someone who said yes please explain why they feel that way? thanks
Seven nut cases here ?
This "Sharia" law.... probably copied from the old English law in the 600s or the 1600s....
Our Conservatives seem to love the past, the Dark Ages..
And why this fear and dread of someone else's culture and law ?
I'd add one more point to the list: Even when all other points are met, it would still require the Muslims pushing for Sharia law convincing or overpowering those Muslims who don't really want Sharia law and are fond of the Western way of life because they have become used to it and/or don't really care much about their religion and/or follow a non-orthodox interpretation of Quran (such as Sufis or modernists).

Not at all.
"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
