    I grasp that there is a real difference between the reality and the perception.  

    I do understand what you're saying, and respect it.   It's a tricky boat though in that I'm not really as concerned with what Sharia is or isn't, but just that for Sam Brownback, our governor, it became a buzzword as something we must "desperately oppose" and they equated it to forced islamic beliefs and all sorts of ill.

    I'm more trying to get across the idea that what they keep saying is this horrible "Sharia" thing is basically what they are doing.

    I will admit, if they had ran a race based on their fear of Hanukkah or Kwanzaa, Id have to use that tongue in cheek too.

    But I get what you're saying, and really, no offense was meant in that way.

    Having Hope and using action to give people hope are different things. Make a difference for someone.

      and I didn't assume any intent. Shari'a is just one of those words for which the RW representation (and associations) seems to be defining discourse. As I said, I think your diary is really good and I thank you especially for the update re the Art Council.
