If it's a majority that wants Shariah law, it's not the muslims terrorists that are the problem. It's those who want Shariah law who are the problem, it's Islam that's the problem.

This headline/article is just sensationalist fearmongering. Look at the survey questions:

If shariah conflicts with the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights, which law should be considered supreme?

43% THE U.S. CONSTITUTION AND BILL OF RIGHTS

33% SHARIAH

“Shariah as interpreted by Islamic authorities is compatible with the U.S. Constitution, including freedom of speech and other rights.”

60% TOTAL AGREE

I guess a headline like "MAJORITY OF MUSLIMS FEEL THAT THEIR RELIGION IS COMPATIBLE WITH THE CONSTITUTION" doesn't fit the narrative.

And just so we're clear about how big of a problem it is, the Shariah-wanting Muslims currently make up approximately 0.001% of the US population. I'm sure we'll all be living under Islamic law any day now...

15% support only Shariah courts; 45% say Shariah should be interpreted by the individual; and, 47% say Shariah is a personal guide to practice of faith.

Honestly, this is less radical than Christian conservatives.

33% sharia isn't exactly a good number. Would like to see less than 10.

How is it that 60% of the Muslim population thinks that Shariah law is compatible with the Constitution when it is a giant step backwards for women's rights? I'm not sure how these two coincide.

And even then, there have a ton of polls over the years that all show moderates support the actions of the extremists .

It very clearly advocates murder and slavery. Moreover, common practice in the first century would certainly have included behavior we would today call pedophilia.

Edit, sorry, you went out of your way to say new testament. Jesus though, in the new testament, did not renounce the old, in fact he said it should be upheld.

Yes it very well does, in many many instances. Why not go and read the shitty christian bible for yourself and find out?

As an atheist I have to be intellectually honest and admit that Christians belong here; Muslims do not.

^ I was about to say, the US constitution is hardly any better. And it's not like it would make any difference, they'll just pass any law they want to no matter what the piece of paper says.

Well, if there's one thing that will unite the whites and the blacks, it will be over lynching Abdul.

Dunno about that. There's the growing problem of black Muslims who frame their struggle against whitey in the language of jihad.

There's also white liberal SJWs who would happily fall on Abdul's sword if it meant being an "ally" against "white privilege."

This isn't a racial matter anymore. Mental illness knows no demography.

So we have to lynch a couple hood rats and legbeards as well? Sounds like an acceptable lose.

And I found it. I guess 33% is now the majority and 43% is the minority. Here's the link where the research was done. I did your homework for you thread starter.

I checked the link, then I checked the link in the links, then I checked the links in the links that was in the links. I can't find this poll. I've found the PEW research poll, that doesn't have anything remotely in it that's about Muslims wanting to trade the constitution. Then I checked the poll from https://www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org/2015/06/02/the-american-public-understand-islamic-supremacism-better-than-their-leaders-doesnt-want-it-here/ but that's about the American perception on Islam.

Show the poll.

From the makers of the "Obama wears a Muslim prayer ring myth", we bring you, "Muslims are coming to enact sharia law!"
