    No, the possibility for sharia law in the USA is nonexistent at the moment.

    It is however a very real threat in the UK and France. A small threat, but a real one.

    Why would unconservative Christians and the irreligious, who make up the vast majority of the "everybody else" want to live under Sharia?

    Kinda wondered the same thing. In a democratic system, it's completely impossible because you're talking about close to half of the voting population being able to accept a status that renders them worthless in the eyes of the law. I'm sure the evangelical female population wouldn't mind being treated like owned chattel, but that's far too small of a percentage of the American population.

    IMHO, not even the most Conservative Christian would embrace Sharia law, let alone anybody else. Other than a few Conservative Pro-Caliphate Muslims that might embrace the concept, it really isn't in the range of plausibility.

    Whoops. My bad.

    Ah well. My accidental "yes" vote will get swamped down by way too many people voting "lol no".

    I don't think you guys grasp of how a truly dangerous and regressive system sharia law is...

    "Wanting" is irrelevant. It's a question of wills. Who has the stronger will? Passive, disciples of diversity and tolerance, or hard charging zealots who won't give an inch? It's a no-brainer.
