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.
One can live in a vacuum. One can only look to the stars. But I live in a world where my Christian brothers and sisters are killed in the name of Islam by political nut jobs that destroy the faith of good.
My airport security lines and beefed up security at functions might just be a response to the Political Islam threat. Wow, one group of fanatics hurting so many in the day to day.

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.
I am not familiar with the term, as this is the first that I have heard of it.

I believe freedom to choose one's religious path must be granted universally. Muslims should not expect others to become Muslim. Christians should not expect others to become Christian or criticize others for not being/becoming Christian.Religions are like a a box of assorted chocolates. God...

Do you think the day is coming when ISIS will attack us here in America? Is there any way to stop a ISIS attack here in America? What do you think America should do about ISIS? Should we strike them in such a way as to cripple their organization forever? What can America do to protect America? What...

In some countries face-covering veils are being banned because they can present a security risk and some feel they show a lack of assimilation. Australia is the most recent example. Their proposed law would require a woman to show her face to law enforcement if requested, and if she refused she...
