Religious freedom? Religious tolerance? Of course. America’s very foundation is based upon it.
But religious law? Never when it goes against the fundamental liberties and rights contained in the Constitution.
Yet there are those Muslims who think that because they have chosen to live in America they may practice every abhorrent and often misogynistic aberration of Sharia law. For example:
- Marriage between men and girls as young as 6 years old
- Multiple wives
- Strict dress code
- So-called “honor” killings of those same wives and daughters
- Animal cruelty (bestiality is acceptable, even how-to documented but for men-only, but walking Fido in public is a no-no since owning a dog is considered a sign of “moral” corruption)
- Halal slaughter of animals for human consumption (trust us, it ain’t the least bit kosher)
- Forced conversion
Many of those Muslims continue to insist it is somehow their right to do any or all of these things here in America and, using the same twisted logic that gave them the bright idea to erect a mosque where their more blatant brethren murdered over 3,000 people, the majority of them Americans, 15,000 Islamic supremacists are having a convention this weekend in Connecticut to learn how to counter the rising push in America against their extremist ideology. They would like nothing better than to redefine Sharia law within the common lexicon as a simple “misnomer” and are trying to hide behind the American right to freedom of religion. (A particular freedom, it must be noted, that does not exist within Islam and the practice of Sharia as partially noted above. But if you don’t believe us, just ask Christians still living anywhere with a Muslim majority or close to it.)
Connecticut was one of the original 13 colonies and sacrificed much to give us the country in which we live today. To say it is a slap in the face to see it overrun with supporters of terrorism this weekend is an understatement. The brave military men and women of the United States have fought for over 200 years for liberty, not for its denial through the brutalization and slavery that is Islam and Sharia law. Americans honor them this weekend; every one of them who have fought and especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
