    I would care if America "officially" became any religion, muslim or no.

    I would for historical reasons generally like to see America keep its christian bend when it comes to any particular religion simply because much of the foundation of this country was based on that and its a nod to history, but if the majority of people in some far gone future end up holding another religion in their hearts I wouldn't have a grave issue with it.

    What segment of our society has accepted conversion to Islam?
    Have they accepted ALL of it?
    What have they had to give up?
    Does anyone really think that free citizens in modern industrialized countries are going to accept any aspect of sharia law?

    I could care less if America trades Christianity for Islam, as long as our democratic traditions remain intact. There are secular Islamic nations, just like there are secular christian nations. Religions change to suit the desires of the local populace and political structure.

    No. I was very specific about what I was talking about.

    The Christian influence on this nation has been mostly harmless and the fact of the matter is that the Christian opposition to abortion is the morally correct one, and I'm an atheist. The present petty squabble over same-sex marriage is white-noise for the media to allow them to ignore real issues.

    But Islam? A religion that tells women to hide their faces, when it's not telling them to dress up in canvas tents? That's an abomination.

    The difference you describe is not Christianity vs Islam, it is secularism vs theocracy. If a Christian theocracy got a hold of our political system and actually enforced its rules things would get ugly in a hurry. Thankfully we're a secular, constitutional democracy, not a religious theocracy.
    As to the original question, yes, I would be greatly disheartened to know that the USA was becoming an Islamic nation in the sense of a theocratic state. Just as I'd be greatly disheartened if the USA were to become a Christian nation.

    America will never be a Muslim country.
    It may be [under that video] a country with a Muslim majority.

    American Muslims are highly integrated, it would do Islam good rather than bad.

    Let me make this clear.
    I don't care if America turns Muslim.
    I don't care if Saudi Arabia turns Christian and i don't care if Iraq suddenly turns Jewish.

    How bloody insecure are some people
    Are you scared Americans will convert to Islam in droves?
