From Facebook: An olive branch of religious tolerance

November 5, 2010

On Facebook, someone I’m friends with posted a status about the fact that Oklahoma banned Sharia law. (Whatever that means…since in America we don’t use Sharia law to begin with). I trolled for a while, and then afterward, some people started posting seriously. Here’s what one guy wrote:

Very interesting conversation and viewpoints. I agree that it was a ridiculous waste of time to put that bill on the ballot. Even in Dearborn, Michigan, where I went to high school and where there is a large Muslim community, U.S. law and state law — not Sharia law — are the practice. Moreover, I don’t think of us as only a Christian nation. That would leave out Jewish people, Muslims, Buddhists, Mormons, agnostics, atheists, etc. We are a multi-cultural, multi-religious nation, and that is a blessing, in my opinion.

Oh, ok. Mormons foiled once again. I guess the question is: does this even matter?

  1. Frankly, Mormons are in better company in that listing than they would be if lumped with the evangelicals in the “Christian” category.

  2. True.

    But is it official? Is Christian a term that is primarily “owned” by evangelicals? I never got the memo.
