America’s Sharia Law

 

(Updated for reposting– originally posted 1/19/2011)

One of the reasons I hear coming from “conservatives” for invading and occupying Islamic countries is so “they” won’t take over America and force Sharia “law” on “us”. You know, kind of an extension of the “fight them there so we don’t have to fight them here” excuse.

True, have no wish to live under such a brutal and primitive, and painfully stupid, system. But doesn’t that mean we should deal with the mote in our own eye and get rid of our own version of Sharia “law” too? Otherwise we are just being hypocritical. Again.

Sharia law is no more obscene than most of the counterfeit laws in America. Kidnapping and murdering people over plants? Or chemicals? Or because they refuse to facilitate their own muggings? “Laws” based on what people claim their god wants?

If we refuse to put up with being ruled by Sharia “law”, why don’t we refuse the US equivalent and refuse to tolerate drug laws, gun lawssex lawstax laws, seatbelt laws, property codes, obscenity laws… and the list goes on almost infinitely to embrace any and all “laws”, based on a religion, which attempt to control or regulate anything other than actual aggression or theft.

Sorry, but if your god approves of the War on Politically Incorrect Drugs, or government sanctioned (or prohibited) marriage, or 99%+ of the rest of the things that “The Law” concerns itself with, your god is a monster. And if you continue to follow your god (whatever name you call him) in spite of his monstrosity, then you are no better. And if you think it is a good idea to impose “laws” like this, and enforce them against your neighbors who may not share your religion, you should be happy with Sharia “law”. As for me, I’ll take liberty and respect yours as well.
