  1. In my opinion anyone, from high to low, from simple citizen to the highest in office, should be thrown back when and if a law not custom in the land is invoked, and especially when a lawmaker is is invoking a religion!
    When Christians are allowed to invoke God’s law, and thus force people to live according to that law, then Muslims are entitled to the same rights, and are, in my opinion at least, rightfully entitled to invoke the sharia law!
    I feel that lawmakers should act according to the Constitution, and as we all know (or should know), the US Constitution prevents invoking religion in anything that has to do with politics…….
    Or, in another interpretation, IF Christian God’s law is invoked, then the Divine Heads of other religions equally must be (allowed) to be invoked!

    And I have the idea, but correct me if I am wrong there, that Daryl Mettcalfe is not willing to allow muslims to invoke their religious law, ie the sharia.

    So, mr. Mettcalfe needs to either shut up, or apologize and allow others religions to be invoked also… for instance the Gay God’s law! (dunno if there is one……)
