Those who support our president don’t hide their blatant racism and xenophobia. That’s what happens when you elect someone who runs their campaign on banning all Muslims from our country. But with everything going on right now, what are these people protesting on the weekends?
On June 10, nearly two dozen cities participated in the March Against Sharia. Despite this country not practicing it, they believe Sharia Law will become the law of the land.
Sharia Law is an extreme set of laws practiced in some Islamic countries. Long story short, many crimes are punishable by death and you must practice Islam. It’s also a reason why many Muslims leave their country and come here, where our constitution allows freedom of religion.
Yet the same group of people who want to practically have sex with our constitution, who shockingly support President Donald Trump, are now protesting Sharia Law in their spare time.
To clarify, the United States isn’t going to switch to Sharia Law simply because we allow people to practice Islam. Yet all it took was one racist Cheeto to have these fundamentalists freaking out, even convincing themselves that Trump was elected by God to wipe out Islam.
Church and State
Sharia Law will never take over America because in addition to freedom of religion, we also have separation of church and state. Per the first amendment:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
So take a fucking chill pill and protest something that actually stands to threaten our country, like a president suspected of obstruction of justice and treason. We know you just want a reason to bring prayer back to school because you think that it will make everything better.
Perhaps the most shocking part of these marches is seeing people talk about how Sharia Law discriminates against women and gays. You showed your feelings about those two groups by voting for a misogynist who took no time revoking the bathroom rights of transgenders.
By the way, science has now linked religious fundamentalism to mental illness. Maybe it’s time to ease up on the Jesus Juice.
