Anti-Sharia march in Southfield (Detroit)

Of course the Southern Poverty Law Center takes the wrong side in this...

Southfield — Some 200 people gathered in Southfield for an anti-Sharia rally Saturday, part of a national movement organized by a group called ACT for America. Another rally took place in Lansing.

To a soundtrack that included “Yankee Doodle,” “You’re A Grand Old Flag” and the occasional supportive honks of passing motorists, participants stood along Telegraph Road south of 12 Mile holding posters with messages like “Sterling Heights Says Stop Sharia” and “Honor Kill No.”

American flags fluttered in a cooling breeze on an 86-degree afternoon, and people posed for pictures in front of a 1977 Winnebago covered with Donald Trump campaign posters.

The rallies, held in more than two dozen U.S. cities, were organized by ACT for America, which claims Islamic law is incompatible with Western democracy.

CLAIM? The Detroit News was, at one time, actually conservative.

Thanks for the info.  I didn't know that there was such an organization.  It is very disturbing that some lower courts are ruling in favor of Sharia.  This taking place in Southfield  (it's been years since I lived in the area) was quite surprising to me, though it is not far from Dearborn which has one of the largest populations of Muslims in the country.

I am not fully up to speed on the topic, but I believe it's safe to say this demonstration surprised many Chaldean (Christian) immigrants in Southfield, and was viewed as being in the wrong venue for RELIGIOUS reasons --- they're not Muslims.

ACT is a large organization and it is refreshing and encouraging to know that they are out there.  Sharia law is slowly creeping into our society and it needs to be stopped now rather than later.  Too many people are apathetic or ignorant to Sharia law and we as a country better wake up in a hurry.

ACT! for America was founded by Brigitte Gabriel, who also wrote these books:

Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America

They Must Be Stopped: Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It

Sean Hannity has had her on his show several times.
It is rare to hear anyone as fired up as Brigitte Gabriel!
(I'm tempted to call her "the Lebanese Ann Coulter"!)
