    There's already one Muslim representative.

    I do not.
    We already have Sharia Law in America.

    Seriously, they do big time in the UK and in theory to some extent in the US. Follow the logic: In America there are some Christians who on religious grounds oppose litigating with a fellow Christian in civil court.

    1 Corinthians 6

    New International Version (NIV)
    Lawsuits Among Believers

    6 If any of you has a dispute with another, do you dare to take it before the ungodly for judgment instead of before the Lord’s people? 2 Or do you not know that the Lord’s people will judge the world? And if you are to judge the world, are you not competent to judge trivial cases? 3 Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more the things of this life! 4 Therefore, if you have disputes about such matters, do you ask for a ruling from those whose way of life is scorned in the church? 5 I say this to shame you. Is it possible that there is nobody among you wise enough to judge a dispute between believers? 6 But instead, one brother takes another to court—and this in front of unbelievers!

    7 The very fact that you have lawsuits among you means you have been completely defeated already. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated? 8 Instead, you yourselves cheat and do wrong, and you do this to your brothers and sisters.


    Because of this Biblical passage, a legal alternative is commonplace in some Christian circles called Binding Christian Arbitration. I know an attorney who specialize in it. Basically it allows Christians to avoid civil court be agreeing to submit their disputes to tribunals made up of fellow Christians. It's voluntary and DOES NOT apply to criminal proceedings. I was talking to some friends in the UK and they have something similar there that some Muslims participate in. Relinquish all civil liability through the government courts and in exchange allow a faith-based tribunal reach a verdict. Compare to Judge Judy. There's nothing stopping Muslims in America from doing so as well, all parties must be agreeable however.
    Having opinions all over the map is a good sign of a person capable of autonomous thinking. Felix -2011

    Don't remind me. He's my Congressman, and he's useless.

    (That has nothing to do with his religion, but in general he's useless).

It all started with a general fear of commies and he picked it up and ran with it a delusional attempt to "cleanse" america of its enemies. He got as far as he did, because only a few people had the balls to stand up to him, the most prominent being Murrow.


    IN today's environment with the 24/7 news cycle, it would be impossible

    He is actually advocating for suspension of the constitution, if he ever gets over his paranoia to consider it actually means.

    This is nonsense plain and simple.

    The notion that Islamist could gain any kind of foothold in the US is ludicrous.
    Obviously I am not? Riiiighht...

    Look, I have ALREADY POSTED NEWS ARTICLES that show that they ALREADY HAVE A FOOTHOLD.

    Remain ignorant if you like.

    I am not saying they will win, just that to blow it off as impossible is literally the mindset of a ignorant person. Sharia is not compatable with our Constitution and most Americans will not want Sharia in our Courts... but it is already happening because butt headed Judges are making personal rulings. This needs to be addressed and fixed.
