    Matthew Schmitz, deputy editor at First Things, wrote an essay titled “Fears of Creeping Sharia” that was published at NRO on Wednesday, June 13.

    The piece was striking in its willful ignorance about:

    •the intrinsic nature of Sharia itself;

    •the frequency and intensity of efforts by mainstream American Islamic organizations to promote Sharia in America (and we now know these are Muslim Brotherhood appendage organizations, who unfortunately do seem to represent the masses as per the only available polling data we have);

    •the legal basis for American law.

    If they want Sharia where they live that is fine, but there is no reason to bring it over here.

    I don't have a problem at all with sharia courts as courts of arbitration and kept by agreement to their own community. Sharia should NEVER, EVER be applied by our courts.

    Just tell them it's what they want for America, only "Christian". They'll understand.

    The idea that it ever will seems to me a fear without any real basis in reality. Is there any actual event of this occurring or even coming close? I am doubtful.

    There have been cases of Muslim workers demanding special breaks for prayer times even though this may require non-Muslims to work harder. This is in accordance with shariah law which views Muslims as superior and gives them special privileges over non-Muslims.

    Look--I don't mind the religious taking some time to perform a religious duty if it makes you perform better. But please try to arrange it around your lunch breaks, please.

    By the way, how many of you want sharia law? I guess not that many. Considering how laws are produced and enforced in America, I have nearly no fear of it being enacted here.

    I can count on the American non-muslims for that.

    Yes, they will understand just like every other ethnic group who came to America. We are a nation of laws and those laws are for everyone, regardless of your religion.

    That wasn't the question. Demanding isn't getting.

    They are demanding special treatment. That's a problem.
