The Bogus Threat from Shariah Law

The goal of Islam is to Islamisize, to subjugate the entire world under Islamic law. In the UK, there are Sharia courts already. If you look at the Islamization of Europe, you will see that it is further advanced than in the United States (a preview of our future). Also, the difference with the Catholics is this: it is Islamic doctrine to fight the unbelievers and subjugate them under Islamic law (not so with Catholicism).

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...
