    What this “Christian Nation” needs is a humongous Muslim Shariah enema. I not only needs it, it deserves it. Give these conservative states a Muslim theocracy. The Christians could not leave the separation of church and state alone, so now everyone wants to get in the game and those whinny crybabies (Christians) want protection for their favorite imaginary being.

    Sorry, the second amendment doesn’t work that way. What’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. Welcome to Shariah law — it’s only a matter of time. Go ACLU!

  2. If you want to live your life in obedience to your law, fine, as a christian, I want to live my life in full obedience to God’s ways. But I must also obey the government of the U.S.A. I have seen the effects of sharia in this country, albiet in a small way. A man and his wife came in to a store and his wife was dressed in a burka.To me that is slavery. I’m sure that the aclu wouldn,t mind seeing a bit of that for their wives or daughters. Maybe if the men would wear a burka they wouldn,t FORCE their wives to wear them.
