Pretty damn ridiculous. While I agree that some aspects of Sharia law are terrible and have no place in the 21st century, there are other aspects of it that are very good.
Sharia law requires Muslims to pray five times per day: are we really in favor of banning Muslims' prayers?
Sharia law forbids usury. I can see why Western powers would be against this
Sharia requires Muslims to help the poor. Shall we stop that too?
These are just three examples of Sharia law that are very good. Of course it is easier to accept what the media tells us, that Sharia is only about genital mutilation and honour killings. By banning it in its entirety, we are throwing out the baby with the bathwater.

So it's not true that when women are raped they're stoned to death?
So it's not true you could loose your hands if you steal? etc. etc. etc.
