Should Americans allow Muslims to practice their religion according to their holy book, including the Shar’ia laws?

America has a representative government. It is rule by the people, for the people. So if enough Muslims can get specific religious laws voted into civil law here, then they will certainly be lawful.

Look at what the homosexuals are doing. They are pursuing lawful means to make their sexual preferences acceptable. So if other people want to marry multiple wives lawfully, or apply laws in the Koran to their community, they must get enough votes to overturn existing laws.

As a Christian I would vote against such laws. But as an American, I must respect their right to pursue legal channels to make their voices heard, even as I want to be heard without discrimination. The will of the majority will rule.

What Do You Think?

a. Do you think the doctrine of separation of church and state will adequately limit what kinds of Muslim laws can be enacted?

b. Do you think the doctrine of separation of church and state will adequately limit a feared Christian theocracy?
