Because it means Shariah law, a political system that privileges Islam over all other religions. Because it means putting a system of law in that reinforces religious edicts over everyone, regardless of faith and regard for human rights.
So you get results like Aceh province caning an elderly Christian woman for selling alcohol, Shariah patrols punishing any woman for not veiling. You get courts that count a woman or Christian's testimony as half that of a man, as well as devaluing them in inheritance cases.
Child marriages, spousal abuse, marital rape and denying a woman support while failing to divorce her all become legal when Islamic religious rules take effect.

We honor various religions in America. But security for our people means keeping evil at a safe distance. Islam could be a choice but not a reason for changing laws that bash women. Women here have rights. Everyone has rights. We pray our America always gives respect to their people no matter their gender or their strengths. The world needs freedom not to be tormented by those who twist their own religious beliefs into rules no living being should be exposed to. Political Islam would certainly be a great treat.
