    and the backlash against the crazy racist fundamentalist right wing wacko (fill in the blanks here) would ensure that Sharia would become a reality.



    Sharia (should it win here) will win by the same mechanism it has in Europe - by appealing to Tolerance.

    Some provisions of Sharia Law provide for binding arbitration and dictate how that will be carried out. ANY two people, Muslim or not, can enter a contract and agree that if a dispute arises, it will be decided by arbitration.

    Some provisions of Sharia Law dictate matters that are also contemplated by American civil law, especially family law. Muslims are not unique in this regard; Jews and Catholics also have such "shadow laws". As long as they do not conflict with civil law, no problem. So, if an American Catholic who has a civil divorce but not a Catholic annulment wants to behave as if he is not free to remarry, no problem. If an American Jew wants to have his baby's birth celebrated by a Rabbi, even though the hospital where it was born issued a birth certificate, no problem. And if an American Muslim wants to seek the consent of his Iman for the custody arrangements for his minor children during a divorce, most American civil courts will bless that -- as long as the spouse agrees and the arrangement is is in the best interests of the child.

    What the fools who want to outlaw Sharia Law seem to fear is that your Muslim neighbor could murder his teenaged daughter and successfully defend against a homicide charge by claiming "Sharia Law made me do it". That's never going to happen, even assuming that the evils done in the name of Islam are interpreting that dogma correctly. ALL of us are bound by the same body of law; all of us are equal under that law, and none of us will ever have a special right to kill based solely on our religion.

    So, I want mashed potatoes, baby.
    Good post Pinkie but I think that the issue that people have with Sharia is not how you name your child or personal contracts but in how it talks about how a woman can't get a divorce or how women can be punished by their men.

One of these examples is Honor killings. We didn't have those for a long, long time.... and we didn't miss them, but now that islam is here, we have them back. yippy.

    Damnit. I meant to vote mashed potatoes.

    That said, Sharia that deals with financial allocations of resources in a partnership or marriage that are agreeable to all parties should be legal. We allow Rabbinical law to do this. As long as the law does not contradict existing law, I see no problem.

    You can't be against Sharia and be for Rabbinical at the same time when it comes to areas we allow Rabbinical.

    Gotta disagree with you there. The issue I see people having with Sharia is that it's Islamic. It's not a okay to financial Sharia, but no to social Sharia, it's no to Sharia period.

    I a little tidbit people don't realize is we actually do allow Sharia when it comes to mortgages. Banks structure Islamic financing so that the bank owns the property and the "loan" for lack of better word holder makes payments equal to the total payments. There's no "interest" per se and therefore is Sharia compliant. I don't see people lining up to ban this, but probably because it's largely off the radar.

    I don't see how we can allow Rabbinical law and not Sharia without violating the first amendment

    Yep. The IRA and the islamists are together, 90% of GB's terrorists for the past 2 decades.

    All you people who think Muslims pose no threat to this country wake up amd look around....Look at all the other Muslim Nations that have Sharia Law. How many of them are really our friends?....You can count them on one hand and if we did not give them billions of dollars there would be even less. Even in countries like England and France where they have huge Muslim populations have problems......Like I said before Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. I believe right now we have 1 Muslim in Congress...That could change quickly. Please think about it.....It could happen.
