During Fox News’ live coverage of Kentucky clerk release from prison, anchor criticized Davis and those who supported her decision to refuse to issue gay marriage licenses.
“They set this up as a religious play again,’ he said. ‘This is the same crowd that says, 'We don’t want Sharia law, don’t let them tell us what to do, keep their religion out of our lives and out of our government.’ Well, here we go again.’”
What Shepard is not getting though, is the fact that opposing same-sex marriage is hardly unique to Sharia Law. Not so very long ago, opposition to same-sex sexuality in general, and same-sex marriage in particular, was almost universal. Even President Obama was against same-sex marriage and nobody ever equated his stance against it as being a form of Sharia law.
So in other words, according to Shepard Smith’s logic, any law that is shared with Islam and advocates of Sharia law must be rejected because it’s too similar to Sharia law.
Really? Christianity also teaches that murder, stealing and committing perjury are wrong. These are shared by most if not all religions, including Islam.
So if Islam teaches that it is wrong to steal, should the United States abolish laws against stealing because it would be seen as Sharia law?
In reality, it's the bully-tactics of left and the homosexual lobby that are nearly identical to Sharia law when it comes to opposing Christianity.
As Graeme Wood wrote in The Atlantic in March 2015, "Muslim 'apostates' are the most common victims [of radical Islamist groups such as ISIS]. Exempted from automatic execution, it appears, are Christians who do not resist their new government. Baghdadi permit them to live, as long as they pay a special tax, known as the ', and acknowledge their subjugation. The Koranic authority for this practice is not in dispute."
Similarly, Christians can live in the United States, but they must "acknowledge their subjugation." It's a lesson that Kim Davis is learning, as are the rest of us.
