Scared Republicans: Sharia Law Is Coming! PANIC!!!


Dude, this is getting ridiculous.

In the most recent Newsweek survey, 14 percent of Republicans polled said that it was "definitely true" that Obama sympathized with the fundamentalists and wanted to imposeIslamic law across the globe. What is astounding to me is that this is not a fringy two or three percent of Republicans; this is 14 percent of those polled.

Granted, 14 percent is nowhere near a majority, but when you add in the other 38 percent who say that it is "probably true" that Obama sympathizes with Islamic fundamentalists, you get a full 52 percent of Republicans who actually believe that Sharia law (the Islamic code for living) will be a mandate in America. .

For the record (and to refresh your memory of those good ole SAT analogies), Sharia law is to Islam as the Ten Commandments are to Christianity. Steeped in some really gross irony as usual, the folks who are freaking out over the non-existent threat of Sharia law (and Islam in general) are the same folks who want Biblical Law (a.k.a. the Ten Commandments) to govern our country.
