    Do think Sharia Law is a REAL possiblity in the US?

    Im asking this question because of some of the people I have encountered that want extra laws made banning it and they say they would never vote for ANY Muslim politician because of it.

    SO I ask, do you fear Sharia Law and think its a possibility here in the US.

    I do not.

    There would be nothing barring individuals from engaging in contract which upheld Sharia Law so long as it doesn't conflict with US law and individual liberty.

    Hell no. People bitch about how partisan our government is now by having "under God" in the POA and "in God we trust" on money. Sharia law is much, much, MUCH more pervasive than that.

    And I promise that if any politician ever tried for Sharia law with a loud enough voice, they'd get assassinated in a heartbeat.

    I would say it is virtually impossible.

    I understand that and thats exactly why i have no fear of it

    lots of people have their own laws/customs/beliefs but they dont get to trump or violate us laws, freedoms and liberties because of them.

    actually, sadly this is probably 100% true IMO

    sadly because I think its extreme NOT because I wouldnt think that would be a horrible politician, that would be the worse politician.

    I don't share your level of confidence. I see a division between Conservative Christians and everyone else in the not too distant future, and Sharia Law making a very strong bid as the dominant system among "everyone else".

    Why? Why would everyone who isn't a conservative Christian support Sharia Law?
