    Shariah law is simply one kind of authoritarian law, and in that respect we should always be worried about rising authoritarianism, whether it comes from liberalism or conservatism, or Christianity or Islam.

    I was more referring to it ACTUALLY being condoned in the U.S.

    Yeah, anyone could be worried about Sharia Law... but that doesn't mean it will be integrated into our judicial system. Especially concerning the Sharia laws that go against our constitution and practices.

This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." —John Adams

    I see Shariah Law as just one example of a particular power structure taken to an extreme end. Since the predominant religion of the Middle East is Islamic, then it would make sense that the extreme result would be Shariah Law. It's much more realistic to be worried about a form of extremist Christian law because Christianity is the majority religion here, not Islam. Besides that, there isn't a political vacuum for Shariah Law to move into. To whatever extent you would agree, our constitutional safeguards would prevent Shariah from overruling our Federal and State laws.

    Im not arguing that it WILL necessarily...but I have pointed out (with an article supporting the reailty) that in England they have 'allowed' for Sharia to be practiced (something which shocks many Brits)...so all I would suggest is that rather than roll over in the name of political correctness (a trend which I find hilarious with liberals and the muslim religion for some reason), that we remain as vigilant as I think you are suggesting and it is not then likely to happen here.

    The day we have to worry about Sharia law in the US is the day we need to start worrying about other non-factors like Skynet or zombie infestation.

    Its fear mongering, period but, sadly a lot of ‘conservatives’ are falling for it because, they like to follow.

    2 words for you...'Great' and 'Britain'...

    I HOPE NOT...I really truly hope we never have to worry about it. It is as inconceivable to me as I am sure it is to you.

    Then again I would have NEVER thought England would start allowing that bull**** either.
