Religious Freedom in U.S. limited to U.S. Laws

Reader comment on item: No Islamic Law in Minnesota, for Now

Submitted by gingi (United States), Aug 17, 2010 at 11:22

1. Religious freedom does not override individual rights.

2. Muslim Law permits bigamy in most Islamic nations; Not in the U.S. (although most of them have wives back in their country and the green card wive here and then something on the side).

3. Do we really want muslim women treated the way they are back home (covered, at home, and subject to stoning or honor killings?)

5. There is an easy solution. If you don't want to do the work according to the rights of citizens, get into another business.
