Islam within the law 

Regarding State Question 755: Are we reaching a point in which voters no longer need vote, as judges and courts continually negate the wishes of its citizens?

In the case of Shariah law, two examples come to mind: Christian Scientist parents have been prosecuted for denying medical treatment to their children.

Mormons are forbidden to practice their belief in polygamy.

Islam can be respected and practiced in this country — within the confines of U.S. law and the U.S. Constitution — just as any other religion. That is not discrimination!
