To: Age of Reason
It wasn't that long ago that the West had laws against things like homosexuality. Yes that is true, yet those laws were very rarely enforced. More importantly, people charged under those statutes were granted due process. None of them were legally taken outside their homes and stoned.
As for witch hunts with people being wrongly accused because of friendships or mere associations, we have that now. Make any law against something, and a witch hunt is possible. Please name one law that grants people to be taken outside their homes and stoned by their neighbors, without due process?
Sterner punishments for criminals is also something we need. While we would undoubtedly agree on some cases, there are also cases where people who have made mistakes, are also very determined not to repeat them. It's a tough call on who to throw the book at and who to allow a more lenient sentence. When it comes to capital cases, rapes, pedophelia and the like, I'm more inclined to agree that we need to increase penalties. For one, I want the people on death row to have their sentences carried out.
Women should also be reeducated to their natural role of homemakers and mothers. While men should be taught to be leaders and fathers.
Look, whether we agree with the above comments or not, Sharia law is in no way shape or form a remedy for what ails us. We shouldn't lament our current condidtion, then praise parts of a pariahistic savage judicial system that would create a far worse situtation if enacted.
Look at third world cultures: you may look down your noses at their values, but they are out-reproducing us.
Sharia Law changes this?
That should tell you that our laws and values are anti-human, because our way of life results in a lower birth rate along with a decline in the number of marriages and families.
Our laws don't. Our society does. Sharia is no answer to this.

(I believe in Cap and Trade. I know, I know... Cap spending and trade Obama!)
He wasn’t advocating Sharia Law but pointing out how VERY, VERY far we are from what we used to once be which was a decent country.
I, for one would like to see a return to what this country once was.
No one that I know of except muslims advocate Sharia.
And if we as a country don’t fix ourselves, the muslims WILL and it will not be pretty.
