Demonstrators gathered in at least 28 cities across the US for anti-Sharia law marches on Saturday.
March Against Sharia rallies are organized by ACT for America, an organization that says it is focused on fighting terrorism and promoting national security.
This year's rallies are expected to be the group's largest protest against Islam and took place in cities including Phoenix, Chicago, Austin, Atlanta, New York, Boston and Seattle.
But many of the marches saw even larger counter-rallies.
Hundreds marched through downtown Seattle, banging drums, cymbals and cowbells behind a large sign saying 'Seattle stands with our Muslim neighbors'.
Participants chanted 'No hate, no fear, Muslims are welcome here' on their way to City Hall, while a a phalanx of bicycle police officers separated them from an anti-Shariah rally numbering in the dozens.
Local activists even set up an 'Ask an American Muslim' booth where attendees could meet and learn about their Muslim neighbors.
In front of the Trump building in downtown Chicago, about 30 people demonstrated against Islamic law and in favor of President Donald Trump, shouting slogans and holding signs that read 'Ban Sharia' and 'Sharia abuses women'.
About twice as many counter-protesters marshaled across the street.
In the investigation, PRA reveals a common set of conspiratorial myths propagated in varying degrees by speakers from all three organizations. These narratives equate Islam with terrorism and depict a covert effort by American Muslim “stealth jihadists” to infiltrate U.S. institutions for the purpose of bringing down American infrastructure and, eventually, implementing Sharia Law.

Sharia Laws only applies to Believers. You dummy.
The only thing that didn't go his way in the other thread was that someone linked to another thread, so the OP said that he would create a thread in Breaking Alternative News so there weren't duplicates in the Social Issues and Civil Unrest.... nice try though

The other thread didn't go your way, eh?
Good luck with this second nonsense thread.

I don't understand why people are bothering to march for Sharia Law when it is not allowed in this country, per our constitution.
Can anyone answer this for me?
