Should Shari’ah Law be included in US Law?

Posted by thebosun on July 26, 2008

Some Mohammedans would argue that Shari’ah is a Mohammedan’s right no matter where they live. The Archbishop of Canterbury seems to think that Shari’ah should be instituted in the UK. It has been up for vote in Canada. The Ford Foundation, among others, have floated the idea here.

One might point out that Native American Courts and Jewish law in the US may call for consideration in the implementation of Muslim family law in the USA.

Some Mohammedans have complained that they have not been able to received their faith based social services.

I am just wondering how many here would support Shari’ah law in the USA?


A forum member at Hannity ForumBillBrown View Post, asked,

Would this would this include stoning and amputations?
My comment to Bill was, “If that was a prescribed Shari’ah punishment, I suppose that it would have to include that (type of punishment).  (Sarcasm on) After all, we must be sensitive to and respect other cultures. (sarcasm off)
