a reply to: enlightenedservantI have read about a quarter of the Qur'an and it is very interesting, it's more centered on morality and simplifying, or re simplifying Jesus message which had become pagan by Catholicism and Mohammeds Prophethood seems acceptable and apparent to me personally. Evidently the Catholic church gave specific praise of Islam at one time, for their veneration of the virgin Mary so I don't quite know what to make of that. They see her more as Isis so it's confusing.
I realise this is hugely open to individual interpretation but I'd like to know the intricacies of how shariah works instead of constantly seeing one group of nutters shouting about it and another group of nutters shouting it down as a knee jerk response.
The Beth Din of America is a Beth Din (Court of Jewish Law) which serves Jews throughout the United States of America.
It was founded in 1960 and reconstituted in 1994. The focus of Beth Din of America is on areas of family law, Jewish divorce and personal status, as well as adjudication of financial disputes. The Beth Din is affiliated with the Rabbinical Council of America (RCA) and is sponsored by the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America.
The current director of the Beth Din is Rabbi Shlomo Weissmann, who succeeded Rabbi Yona Reiss in 2008.
In 2014, Dr. Michelle Friedman became the first woman on the Beth Din of America’s board of directors.

I think, from what I have read, the Christian faith only concerns itself with your spiritual needs (eccept for a few minority sects) and they only ASK that you try to adhere to the teachings. Also you are free to leave Christianity with no repercussions.
Sharia on the other hand (no matter what sect or interpretation of sharia) wants to control ALL aspects of your life and in some instances DEMANDS that you comply. Don't comply and there are severe punishments. If you leave the faith you risk severe punishment. The bottom line is for sharia law "you will obey or else".

I'm looking for specific instances of where it would progress the legislative framework of western democracy, not generalities.

That's just simply ignorant
The Catholics have priests
The Protestants don't have priests, they have the simple yet effective teachings of Christ, love God and love each other.
Jesus didn't teach a theocracy like Muhamad, Jesus did not teach world domination like Mahumad, Jesus did not expect Christianity to ever conquer the world like Muhamad did
Simple understanding of Christianity would benefit your ignorance
Problem with Muslims and sharia s you Muslims want to conquer the whole world with it, implement your faith by the sword
Funny, you can't agree between shiat and sunny
Is mutilating female children's genitals sharia?
Marrying child brides like Mahamad?
