    it just isn't possible, at least not now and probably not for centuries. Muslims are a tiny proportion of the U.S. Even if they were 100% on board with these ideas, which they emphatically are not, they couldn't take over the government.

    I'm not a fan of pretty much any form of religion, particularly the conservative varieties, whether Christian, Muslim or any other stripe. I also tend to feel like we may be too loathe to criticize religiously based things occurring elsewhere that if Christians in the US were doing them, we would not accept. But, I'm not worried about the Muslim Brotherhood and feel that the anti-Sharia laws that some states have passed are just silly in a country that is 98% non-Islamic. Even if they wanted to disrupt our form of government (which most don't), they don't have any way to do it.
