    lol except the Jews really didn't control the world, this Imam really does support Sharia law. But I see stating a fact is now to be considered scare tactics and lying.

    What is Christian law? Yes I would see no difference between a Muslim and a Christian each wanting to implement religious law based on the Koran or the Bible respectively, both would be the enemies off liberty and the rights of the individual. Though I know of no major religious sects calling for such a thing, whereas, all 5 mainstream Islamic sects call for apostasy, adultery, sodomy, and premarital sex to be capital and/or corporal offenses.

    or at the very least implement law based on their religious preference.
    There is a vast difference between implementing a theocracy and using religious beliefs to guide secular legislation. Sharia would impose policies which are in direct conttradiction to the Constitution; such as, gender discrimination, religious discrimination, countless violations of the establishment clause, freedom of speech, of assembly, etc etc.



    Many people for example oppose abortion from a strict religious standpoint and want to outlaw it entirely because they were raised and taught that it is evil from their religious education, same thing with same sex marriage. Now if a Muslim man told me that not only did he want those same things, no abortions or gay marriage, but also wanted to outlaw alcohol because his religion tells him its evil as well, I wouldnt see much difference between the two. All I would see is two individuals or groups who's sense of justice is influenced by their religion and them seeking to place the same religious laws which govern their church over the rest of the country.

    And dont give me any BS about this being a "Christian country" the majority of its people may be Christian but we are a SECULAR nation, which has clearly defined a difference between state and religion. One may also look at Turkey which is 99% Muslim but also secular which is way one can be openly gay or drink alcohol without the police arresting you.
    Turkey explicitly outlaws Sharia and political parties which support implementing sharia, right in their Constitution.

    If this imam is half the politician ours are, he will never publicly support the horrible Sharia law..
    It would be interesting to hear exactly and truthfully what he does feel.

    He already has:

    At the core of Shariah law are God's commandments, revealed in the Old Testament and revised in the New Testament and the Quran. The principles behind American secular law are similar to Shariah law - that we protect life, liberty and property, that we provide for the common welfare, that we maintain a certain amount of modesty. What Muslims want is to ensure that their secular laws are not in conflict with the Quran or the Hadith, the sayings of Muhammad.

    A judge in NJ found in favor of a Muslim who raped his wife. Under Sharia Law he didn't do anything wrong, and the judge took this into consideration. Thankfully it was later overturned.
    Things are also going on in Michigan.
    Oklahoma also has gone so far as to try to protect themselves from Sharia. On the ballot in Nov. there is a vote to Forbid it.

    Why would Americans EVER condone cutting someone's hands off for stealing (they do also imprison people for theft)? Or stoning to death someone for committing adultery? Or lashing someone for having sex out of wedlock? Or killing someone who renounces their faith? Or allowing more than one wife? Or only allowing the husband to divorce his wife? Or killing homosexuals?

    Some of the other laws aren't that big of a deal, or are more related to personal ways of practicing Islam rather than crime and punishment.

    But to even humor the thought that we in America have anything to worry about this Imam wanting a Sharia compliant America IMO is laughable.

    To be honest I don't know how far the majority of Muslims in America would want to integrate Sharia Law into America, if at all. Some Muslims condemn some of the forms of punishment listed above. Though there is much covered in Sharia law, many of the laws conflict with the rights and practices we have in America. I simply do not believe the laws that go against our constitution and practices would ever be condoned in America.
    I'm more worried about America becoming Catholic compliant.

    Naturally we shouldn't be compliant with any religion.
    Just curious why you chose Catholic to be more worried about.
    Sharia law allows for the stoning death of adulterers, gays etc.
    Catholic law would not allow abortions.
    I know which one I'd choose to be more worrisom.

    Evangelicals are the ones actively seeking to subvert the constitution, and they tend to be neither Catholic nor Muslim
    Don't work out, work in.

    Out of a bench of nine, 5 of our Supreme Court Justices are Catholic. That's why I picked it.
    And while Sharia law allows for the stoning death of adulterers, gays, etc., Catholic law would be more than just not allowing abortions.

    Something worse than stoning?
