9. I'm always wary of anyone bringing out the "Sharia law" trope

As if it's coming to America and it has to be stopped. There are no American Muslims advocating for Sharia Law to be enacted in this country, over all Americans, to my knowledge. OTOH, the Dominionists are hellbent on making America a so-called "Christian nation," and they need to be stopped. But Sharia law isn't on the American Muslim agenda.

You're quite correct about the problem with teaching religious bigotry. And like you, I believe that faith is personal and not something to be impinged on others, the same goes for Atheism, as far as I'm concerned. I would never, for one second, stand to have my own personal belief, or anyone else's forced on others in this country.

But I don't know where this guy is coming from… I'm just not comfortable with his anti-religious bias and apparent willingness to impose it on others.
