Religion of peace, my shiny butt. You're not alone, for I often rail against Sharia in my writings. I'm convinced that Islam and Sharia will start a civil war in England in the next 5 years unless Britain wises up.

It is the right of these countries to govern as they please. If the people do not like it they have two choices: change it from within or move.

As much as I dislike much of Sharia law, I respect that my dislike for it is mostly because I did not grow up with it. We should not apply our cultural norms onto people of an entirely different culture.

As long as no one is being hurt - and in most cases no one is - who are we to judge?

Well Lion, how do you feel about Shar'ia compliant US Banking Laws, Shar'ia compliant US arbitration, and Shar'ia compliant honor killings in the United States of America? Who are we to judge? How about you taking off your blinders?

A nation that allows the imposition of non-secular foreign legal systems is a nation who surrenders its sovereignity to religious extremism.

Yee haw, Mustang! Islamic Republics can govern themselves as they please but this sentence is remarkable: "We should not allpy our cultural norms onto people of an entirely different culture."

What? We sure as hell should when these same people demand that we change our culture to accommodate them within our nations. I am not moving from my nation, thank you very much.

Seems a little known law from the Qur'an is that if Muslims are not treated the way they want to be treated in a country they are colonizing, they are told to move to a more hospitable land.

So, NO Sharia nothing in the United States. And when it comes to "hate speech" one could take a look at the Qur'an. Or at least what I've read in it. I asked at my blog for someone to please show me the verse/Sura that speaks to loving thy neighbor as thyself. I asked long ago. Still waiting for an answer 'cause it just ain't there.

This blog has a good objective...
