It was primarily Christians who sought freedom of worship by coming to the New World, but since then America has flourished with just about every hybrid of religion you can imagine.

But bottom line, if we don’t like it, we ignore it, we shut the door, we abstain. It’s our right as Americans because we’re free to worship…or not.
Lately, there’s been a new kid on the American block. Sharia, an interpretation of Islam, is proving to be more aggressive than cheerfully persuasive. What’s different about Sharia is that it’s not just a case of religious freedom–it’s a case of freedom for all Americans.

Well, when you put it like that.
Here are some signs Sharia is on the march right in your own backyard:
