    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.
    it was overturned. case closed. by the way, can you provide a link for that? and what's going on in michigan?

    Like in England, I too am sure it will never happen here...

    Revealed: UK’s first official sharia courts -Times Online

    Slowly but surely...line upon line...

    umm...

    I mean...NOTHING...just like here...or in Sweden...

    "ISLAMIC law has been officially adopted in Britain, with sharia courts given powers to rule on Muslim civil cases. The government has quietly sanctioned the powers for sharia judges to rule on cases ranging from divorce and financial disputes to those involving domestic violence. Rulings issued by a network of five sharia courts are enforceable with the full power of the judicial system, through the county courts or High Court. Previously, the rulings of sharia courts in Britain could not be enforced, and depended on voluntary compliance among Muslims. It has now emerged that sharia courts with these powers have been set up in London, Birmingham, Bradford and Manchester with the network’s headquarters in Nuneaton, Warwickshire. Two more courts are being planned for Glasgow and Edinburgh."

    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.
    There are other less 'touchy' religion/government blends that we don't permit, either.
    As Your Star said - it's strictly against our core as a country to blend at all.

    Aside that - you can't incorporate what few tolerate.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    The christian right wing nutjobs in this country frighten me far more than any sharia-law-wannabe person could ever hope to.

    Frankly, I'm more worried about a Right-wing Fundy takeover, la "The Handmaid's Tale".
    And even so, that's far, far down my endless list of worries.

    Sorry can't do links. If you google Sharia Law Michigan you'll find a lot to choose from, especially for Dearborn Mi
    NJ might be harder since it was overturned. I think i finally found it by google NJ judge Muslim religious belief's, or something along like lines.
    I thought that was worth a mention because it was a judge who took Sharia Law into consideration in his ruling.
    The man raped his wife, but sharia law allows that.
