De Facto Shariah Law in America

The full article mentioned below is well worth reading. As I contemplate this season of giving thanks — and there is much for which I personally am thankful — I think we are again reminded of the juxtaposition of religious freedom and the other freedoms guaranteed in our constitutional republic.

But what is the status of religious freedom in America today? And in particular, what of  America’s Judeo-Christian heritage?  Consider this:

Is the United States today a de facto shariah state? A close look at recent events points to some alarming conclusions about the tenets of shariah law taking hold in our once-proud constitutional republic and the unwitting, unequal application of existing U.S. laws. The result is that when it comes to religious expression, Muslims now enjoy more freedom of religion and speech under our Bill of Rights than non-Muslims. Equal protection under the laws of our country holds for Muslims far better than for non-Muslims. Several recent examples illustrate this point.

I have to admit some concern over the lack of sourcing in the article, but many of the events recounted therein have been the subject of national news coverage.  What we see in these events are, once again, political correctness run amok.

The reality is, of course, that these “PC” influences are conceived outside of actual laws so it is a stretch to conclude, ipse dixit, that we are suddenly ruled by Sharia law.  Obviously we are not but that doesn’t lessen the insult to true religious freedom thusly suffered.

So as you are thankful this week for the blessings granted you, and after you awaken from your turkey and dressing-induced nap, resolve to stand against this phoney PC business.
