The problem with Sharia Law in America is that it conflicts with American Laws. An example is if you steal, you get your hand cut off. That is in direct conflict with American law of going to jail or paying a fine etc. Sharia Law allows for honor killing, so if you disgrace your husband by getting raped, that is clearly your fault and you can be stoned to death. Muslim are currently trying to use Sharia Law in our courts.
Islamic religious law which seems to be not just apply to things like theft, assault, murder but also to what they consider moral crimes such as adultery, etc. In Iran under similar laws many women have been sentenced to death by hanging for adultery, but strangely enough few men have had the same punishment.
Sharia law is the Muslim law that has been official law in the Muslim nations in the past. Some leaders in those countries want that and others want government and law more similar to western ones.
