I have been hearing from some Christians that defecting Muslims are stating that the Arab 100 year plan is to replace Christianity in the United States with Islam. In addition, they plan to replace our existing law with Sharia Law in the States.

I can't see America incorporating the sacred laws of Islam into our form of government.

 

Liberals believe that law come from the people and not supernatural authority. Conservatives from the Christian Right would never allow Sharia law to infringe on their civil liberties and religious freedom. Former Speaker Newt Gingrich does not even think it is an issue.

 

 

Independents like myself believe in the separation of Church and State. I personally take political beliefs from both sides.

 

Finally, I think the population number of Christians in the United States is far greater than any other beliefs.

 

I think the real threat is Islamophobia. Some groups are trying to stir up a hornets nest. Many of your know that I adopted a Islamic person into my family. Never has this individual affected my Catholic beliefs.

One Million Muslims.org is the organizer and presenter of the upcoming One Million Muslim March. The planned event is not to be an actual march, but rather a gathering of Muslims from across the US, at the Anacostia Park in Washington DC, July 4, 2011.

 

One Million Muslims.org is a newly established Muslim charity whose goal is to present events and entertainment to raise awareness of and money for Muslim causes. The One Million Muslim March will be a gathering of Muslims from across sectarian, ideological, racial, ethnic,language and all other barriers. We will come together for this one day, to re-establish the feelings of brother and sisterhood among Muslim Americans, and to begin the difficult process of post 9/11 healing. Please visit this website often for news and updates regarding the march.

 

One Million Muslims.org was founded by several Muslims who feel that it is time for Muslims to resolve ourselves to never again be left unprepared for the big challenges that face us and our families and children such as the backlash following 9/11. Nothing made it more clear to us that the Muslim community had almost no understanding of what role we would play in the broader international scheme to demonize Muslims and Islam, and to portray Muslims as enemies of the United States and the West, (supposedly because we hate freedoms), than the most recent spate of Islamaphobia that left several mosques destroyed and several Muslims subjected to violence. There was no adequate Muslim response. Only condemnation and appeals to the government, and law enforcement to protect us. There was no plan of action that was pro-active and aimed disseminating the truth in response to the lies, or using the US courts to silence the illegal defamation, misrepresentation and hate speech.

 

Most of the success of the ill conceived scheme to demonize Islam resulted from the rush to judgment that took place following 9/11, and the failed 9/11 investigation which wrongly concluded that Muslims had carried out criminal terrorist attacks on the US on September 11, 2001.

 

One purpose of the One Million Muslim March, along with encouraging Muslim unity and brotherhood, is to bring our community together to hear noted Muslim speakers, activists and Imams from all of the major schools of Islamic jurisprudence, speak on issues of interest to Muslims in America, our challenges and how we must meet these challenges. At the rally, we will also declare to the world that Muslims are innocent of the crimes committed on 9/11 and we demand a new independent investigation and an end to the illegal wars. The following people are presently active officers and directors involved with One Million Muslims.org.

We remain firmly committed to the defense of religious liberty for all—not just for Catholics—because our commitment is to the dignity of each and every human person,” said Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, the retired archbishop of Washington, testifying on behalf of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Human Rights hearing on “Protecting the Civil Rights of American Muslims.”

 

“As a community that has been the target of religious discrimination, we understand the need today to bring attention to protecting the civil rights of our Muslim brothers and sisters,” Cardinal McCarrick said. “We see religious freedom as an essential foundation for our life together in our own nation and across the globe.”

 

Cardinal McCarrick spoke of current threats to religious freedom, noting, “When the very right of conscience is attacked, the ability to exercise religious beliefs is subverted. There are well known contemporary examples where the state would force religious groups and individuals to choose between following their religious beliefs and practices and following the dictates of law.”

 

He concluded, “As other countries wrestle with how to treat religious minorities, let them look to our nation where we work to ensure that their Muslim sisters and brothers are treated with dignity and their religious identity and beliefs are treated with respect. Let them see a people blessed with hard won religious freedom living out our commitment to the rights of all by demonstrating full respect for the identity, integrity and freedom of all religions.”

His Eminence is to be congratulated for articulating very well the true issue - the attempt of radical secularism to silence any religious perspective. I just hope that the subcommittee listened! I hope the former Catholic Speaker of the House listened to Cardinal McCarrick's remarks on the subject.

 

The late Pope John Paul II taught that “The most fundamental human freedom is that of practicing one’s faith openly, which for human beings is their reason for living.” The Second Vatican Council in its Declaration on Religious Freedom (Dignitatis Humanae) declared that “the right of religious freedom has its foundation in the very dignity of the human person, as this dignity is known through the revealed Word of God and reason itself.

All laws have their origins in faith.

The immense empire that the early Muslims suddenly controlled required laws and techniques of governing that were far different from those of the simple nomads of Arabia. Where was guidance to be found? The Qur'an, of course, was the most prestigious and the most authoritative source of legal and moral guidance. But it was also very limited in terms of the range of issues that it covered. So, for a while, the young Arab empire simply followed the laws and practices of the areas that it conquered and left much of the day-to-day government in the hands of the local population. But this was not a satisfactory solution. Many Muslims began to wonder, "What did Muhammad, our Prophet, do in situations like these? Is there an ideal Islamic way to govern?" And they began to gather information about what, in fact, he had done and said, on almost any question that could be imagined.

 

Eventually, this information took the form of reports called hadith (pronounced "ha-deeth") or, as the word is often (if not very precisely) translated, "traditions." It is largely on the basis of these

hadith that the all-inclusive legal code of Islam was constructed. The code is called the sharia (roughly pronounced "shar-ee-ah"). Actually, it is somewhat misleading to call it a legal code, since it regulates things that are far removed from anything that would be recognized as "law" in the contemporary secular West. Not only does it deal with crimes, inheritance, marriage, and divorce, but, rather like the Talmudic law of Judaism, it lays down rules on prayer, fasting, etiquette, and virtually every other aspect of human existence.

 

Out of this mix of Qur'an and hadith, of Sunni and Shi'ite, of Arab and Persian and Turk and Mongol and African and Indian, grew a remarkably rich and complex culture. It drew on Jewish legends and on Greek philosophy, medicine, and science, on Indian mathematics and Persian manners. It produced lawyers and mystics and skeptics and poets.
