Im an atheist. The fact that most muslims believe that the U.S.A. should have Sharia law maybe one of many reasons that a muslim would be seen as unfit for any office in this country, but they are in office. The muslims have set up mosques and this is country belongs to them now. Its funny that some people say oh muslims are peaceful loving people, ok press one on facts of Sharia and their beliefs and see what You get. That's not being xenophobic that's being xenofactual.
I think around 70% of the country identify as Christian. This country does not "belong" to Muslims. It belongs to all of us.
For now. Can't dismiss that certain governments are already bending over backwards to respect Sharia Law.
And let it be known that, for the most part, most governments do not adequately represent the citizens that live there.

Polls say otherwise. Most Muslims moved here to get away from the Shariah law of their homelands.
According to the just-released survey of Muslims, a majority (51%) agreed that “Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to shariah.” When that question was put to the broader U.S. population, the overwhelming majority held that shariah should not displace the U.S. Constitution (86% to 2%).
More than half (51%) of U.S. Muslims polled also believe either that they should have the choice of American or shariah courts, or that they should have their own tribunals to apply shariah. Only 39% of those polled said that Muslims in the U.S. should be subject to American courts.
These notions were powerfully rejected by the broader population according to the Center’s earlier national survey. It found by a margin of 92%-2% that Muslims should be subject to the same courts as other citizens, rather than have their own courts and tribunals here in the U.S.
Even more troubling, is the fact that nearly a quarter of the Muslims polled believed that, “It is legitimate to use violence to punish those who give offense to Islam by, for example, portraying the prophet Mohammed.”
By contrast, the broader survey found that a 63% majority of those sampled said that “the freedom to engage in expression that offends Muslims or anybody else is guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution and cannot be restricted.”
Nearly one-fifth of Muslim respondents said that the use of violence in the United States is justified in order to make shariah the law of the land in this country.
Keep defending Islam idiots.

Keep defending Islam idiots.
Defending separation of church and state and religious freedom for ALL, is not equivalent to me defending Islam any more than it's equivalent to me defending Christianity or Judaism. They're all nuts, IMO! But, to each his own. Personally, I support "freedom FROM religion" first and foremost.
the fact that he is trying to use his religion to block the nominee elected by the voters.
