Mr. Google is your friend.
This will come as a shocking surprise to many Americans whose reaction to the mention of sharia law is viscerally repellent. Those of us who dare defend Muslims in general or their faith in particular typically come across the final Islamophobic response "They believe in Sharia Law and want to replace the Constitution with Sharia Law!"  It reminds me of the old pre-1964 days when I tried -- usually in vain -- to discuss the ugliness of racism with my Southern friends and family. After all the examples of equality I could think of and stories of personal experiences and discoveries, there was always that ugliest of all outcomes: miscegenation -- race mixing! Loving v Virginia was not decided until 1967 and it was against the law in many places for mixed couples (Negro and white) to be married. So all arguments came to an end wit the final card was played: Would you want your sister to marry one???

My discussions usually never progressed that far because I tried to be more persuasive than confrontational, sensing that the ultimate outcome of desegregation was, in fact, the eventual appearance of mixed marriages. Had discussions ever got to that point I had an answer ready: Which one? (Black people, just like white people, come in a range of types, from criminal to accomplished. Of course I wouldn't want my sister to marry a law-breaker but would be honored to have an accomplished business success or literary success for a brother-in-law.) It was a perfect illustration of how different mind sets often cannot bridge the gap of mutual understanding. I could understand the reasoning of racists but their prejudice blocked the way they might understand mine.

Here we are half a century later and anti-Muslim bigotry is the new racism. And mentioning Sharia Law has become the new dreaded specter of miscegenation. Just as in the Sixties, many of my sincere, well-meaning Islamophobic friends and family are crippled by a different stripe of bigotry. And just as in the Sixties they have a lot of reading and homework to do before their blind ignorance is overcome.
