    A small quibble with your comment. More accurate would be the following: There are no similar attempts by Jews or by Muslims in America, as of yet.

    Certainly, in Israel, orthodox Jews are imposing their beliefs on the people and in multiple Muslim-majority nations, the Islamic faith is imposed on the populace.

    They are a small minority but we must acknowledge that there are Americans who not only wish to impose their "ignorant zealotry' but who have even called for the slaughter or imprisonment of those they see as un-repentant sinners.
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
    ~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822
