I’m against it, naturally. So is Rod Dreher. He seems concerned, however, that American Muslims may be for it:

Trying to get at the heart of the matter, I asked if they thought sharia should be the law of the land in our secular pluralistic democracy. Another round of long-winded answers, amounting to, “It would never happen here.” That’s not what I’m asking, I said; should it happen here. Someone explained that Muslim community would never be big enough in this country to make that happen. Which is, of course, entirely beside the point, but we moved on. I had my answer.

Evasive! Well, obviously, I oppose efforts to impose sharia law on the United States in the strongest possible terms. I wonder if Dreher will join me in trying to get mail delivered on liquor stores open on Sundays. As bad as a sharia-style total ban on alcohol sales? Clearly not. And yet, I find this stuff annoying.
