    NO, no, no... the separation of church and state prohibits this idea from ever seeing the light of a any America court room.

    If a law is passed by a legislature it is up to the courts to determine its legality. It would have to see the light of a courtroom. Wouldn't take long to be thrown out though.

    Wrong, It's up to the SCOTUS.

    I'm pretty sure The Supreme Court falls under "the courts," but this is all academic anyway.

    Sharia Law in England and the U.S. is just one of innumerable pre-trial mediation options that people have - and have had - for civil dispute resolution for decades and decades.

    I doubt that it been around England that long... and I've never heard of it being used here, yet.

    I really hope this post was a joke, or an attempt to bait me a bit. Otherwise I am worried.

    It has been used here forever, just like Jewish Rabbinical Courts, Catholic Tribunals, etc.

    Your post here is basically confirmation that you're not reading my posts. In the desperate hope that you'll read, I'll repost the quote from last page:

    Never heard of them. But I feel the same way about those as the Muslim courts.

    Okay, so just so I understand, what you are really saying is that Supremecy, in combination with the establishment clause of the First Amendment, prohibits a state or local government from imposing any religious law on citizens? (Such as a government requirement or law that all women wear headscarves, that all people attend church on Sunday, or that all people read from the Torah once a week.)

    I'm not disagreeing in any way, I just want make sure I understand the point.

    Why? None of them are legally binding. They are a method of resolving a civil dispute without a trial.

    That makes a ton of sense to me, whether it's Jewish, Muslim, Catholic or the Fart Court. Avoiding a trial and offering mutual resolution makes sense.

    I was speaking more to supremacy than religion, but yes.

    No, not a typo.

    I'm really convinced you aren't reading my posts in this thread.
