    take a vote to make our country into a full "conservative" Christian nation or make it an Islamic nation (sharia law), which would you choose?? The choice is only between these two religions.

    Of course a Christian nation wouldn't be a lot different than it is now. Abortions would be illegal, gay marriage would be illegal. You wouldn't be FORCED to go to church or do anything else you don't want to do, because God doesn't force us to do anything for Him.

    Sharia law of course would also make gay marriage illegal, i'm not sure of their stand on abortions....You HAVE TO pray to allah (twice a day?), women would wear burkha's, wouldn't drive, etc.

    Which would you choose if you HAD TO choose one??

    I'd keep it a secular and liberal nation.

    Well we know it's not an Islamic nation (yet), and obama says it's not a Christian nation...so how could it already have been done?

    They gave the American colonists the choice of being subjects of a british monarchy or subjects of a british monarchy.

    They didn't go with their choices either.

    That's the spirit of America.

    We make our own choices.

    And that's the way it should be, we should have the choice of how we want to live, without someone telling us we need to, or must, conform to their way. We wouldn't have that choice with Sharia law.
    I'm a conservative Christian, and i know that with a true Christian nation there would still be quite a lot of freedom (besides the issues with abortions or gay marriage). I'm not talking about the radical whacko Christians like people at the Westboro church...they're as bad as the radical islamists.

    Are you just not wanting to answer the question? I understand what you're saying and i agree...i would just like to know what people would do if they had to make a choice between the 2 and why....

    Uh, no. There are plenty in the Christian community who believe abortions and gay marriage should be legal.

    Certainly I know many Christians who believe we each should have the freedom to choose our own path. Even when that makes us uncomfortable - such as with abortion. I think those Christians can also differentiate between how we see 'marriage' and how non Christians see it.
