First Amendment. Why do you want to give it up? (if your American that is)
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof

What is the difference between this and the persecution of Christians in other countries?
We don't put to death adulterers or kill people for not being muslim
I honestly do not know anything about Shariah
That is quite evident.

I hold the utmost level of respect for Tenn. They see a real problem with islamic laws moving into american society to eventually overtake american laws. Kudos to you Tenn. And to any muslums reading this. You will never-ever take over america with islamic laws. We accept your faith as your faith but you cannot force it onto us americans we wont take it. And Obama cant enforce it,so go back to your american freedom homes and be happy you live where you can worship without ridicule.
Basically tenn is stopping them before they get to far in their agenda. Yes we have the constitution but our current government seems to think our constitution has no meaning anymore states need to prepare to defend themselves against islamic laws and rule, otherwise we will be like the european nations and overtaken with theri religion and we will start getting bombed, and hey we dont want it so yes tenn is doing the american rightous thing by nipping it in the bud before it gets out of hand,

Islam cannot work in america. Here we do not stone or behead a wofe or daughter because the husband or brother "thought" she had an affair. with islam law especially shariah it is permitted. Also here in america woman have equal rights. not in islam. shariah islam requires the woman to wear a burka, not here in america. therefore, noting to be specific because of the current islamic extremist cleric getting ready to protest to our government to make shariah law the amrican law, it has to be stopped know before it gets out of hand and we cannot stop it....
Requirements for Islamic Marriages:
The man who is not currently a fornicator may marry only a woman who is not currently a fornicatress or a chaste woman from the people of the Book.
The woman who is not currently a fornicatress may marry only a man who is not currently a fornicator.
The fornicator may marry only a fornicatress.
The Muslim woman may marry only a Muslim man.
Permission for a virgin female to marry must be given by her guardian, usually her father.
Any Muslim woman may demand her guardian marry her to a Muslim male, provided he is suitable. If the guardian refuses, a judge will effect the marriage.
The father, or in some cases the paternal grandfather, may choose a suitable partner for a virgin girl.
The guardian may not marry the divorced woman or the widow if she did not ask to be married.
It is obligatory for a man to give bride wealth (gifts) to the woman he marries – "Do not marry unless you give your wife something that is her right."[93
In Sharia law, a Muslim man is permitted up to four wives under the rules for nikah. All wives are entitled to separate living quarters at the behest of the husband and if possible. All should receive equal attention, support, treatment and inheritance.
A Sunni Muslim divorce is effective when the man tells his wife that he is divorcing her, however a Shia divorce also requires four witnesses.
Legal and Court proceedings
Testimony from women is given only half the weight of men
and testimony from non-Muslims may be excluded altogether
A confession, an oath, or the oral testimony of a witness are the only evidence admissible in a Sharia court, written evidence is only admissible with the attestations of multiple, witnesses deemed reliable by the judge.
Forensic evidence (i.e. fingerprints, ballistics, blood samples, DNA etc.) and other circumstantial evidence is likewise rejected in hudud cases in favor of eyewitnesses, a practice which can cause severe difficulties for women plaintiffs in rape cases.
In accordance with the Qur'an and several hadith, theft is punished by imprisonment or amputation of hands. Several requirements are in place for the amputation of hands, they are:
There must have been criminal intent to take private (not common) property.
The theft must not have been the product of hunger, necessity, or duress.
The goods stolen must: be over a minimum value, not haraam, and not owned by the thief's family.
Goods must have been taken from custody (i.e. not in a public place).
There must be reliable witnesses.
Muslim theology equates apostasy to treason, and in most interpretations of Sharia, the penalty for apostasy is death.
Men have a more relaxed dress code: the body must be covered from knee to waist. However, under (strict interpretation of) Sharia Law, women are required to cover all of their bodies except hands and face.

If Muslims were allowed to follow Sharia law here, that means in a court of law, they could not be punished for beating or killing there wife or children because it is allowed under that law. That's why they want to make sure nothing like that can happen.

Just like we do not need to make a special ruling outlawing Mosaic law, or any other archaic and barbaric law in the Bible, we also do not need to make a special ruling for Sharia or Islamic law. Its all secondary to US law.
You see the people in Tennessee who are wanting to make Sharia illegal, by and large do not oppose theocracy. They just want their team to lead it.
