It’s a “disturbing trend,” says Asma T. Uddin, a Muslim attorney, in the New York Times: “In recent years, state lawmakers, lawyers and influential social commentators have been making the case that Muslims are not protected by the First Amendment. Why? Because, they argue, Islam is not a religion.”It doesn't disturb me at all. One family that runs the Exxon station down the road might be Islamic, but they may not be. I don't know. The women dress in Western clothing and seem quite comforable selling beer and Jack's Links sausage, so I'm not concerned that they are a problem. If they were, we'd take our business elsewhere.
But sharia is a political system disguised as a religion. They hate gays,, lesbians, transgendered, the whole LGBTQ EIEIEO crowd and would happily push them off buildings or hang them or whatever other bit of barbarity they can dream up. Women have no rights, and are chattel.
I have a huge problem with sharia, which forms the backbone of the political arm of Islam. Besides, I still have't gotten over the fact that they fly airplanes into buildings.
Remember what William Churchill said:
Winston Churchill 1899: “Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.”If the New York Times wants to live under Sharia, I think that they should try it for a while. But, they'd better be ready to fire all the gays and women. I'm just saying.
