The Bogus Threat from Shariah Law

Sharia law has been used in court decisions in the US. Under Sharia law women and children have no rights. Ask anyone in Europe how bogus it is to fear Sharia law. Take a look at France where over 350 areas are under Sharia law. They are called no go areas for French police. The US Govt supports and promotes Sharia finance,. where is this so called wall of separation that applies to Christians? That's why they call it creeping Sharia in many Countries.

In the 19th century, Catholicism was regarded by many people in this country as thoroughly incompatible with Americanism. They saw it as a hostile foreign element that would subvert democracy. Today, a majority of the justices on the Supreme Court are Catholic, and they are taken to be as American as Mountain Dew.

We've come a long way in religious tolerance. Or maybe not. The belief that Catholics are irredeemably alien and disloyal has given way to the fear that Muslims pose a mortal threat to our way of life.

That distrust is behind a push in state legislatures...
