Sharia and the Left

I have long wondered at the hypocrisy of the progressives in shrieking "theocracy!" every time a conservative, Christian person enters his opinion as a Christian into the public square, while at the same time turning a blind eye to the various Islamic enclaves which enact their own versions of Sharia. They may admit in principle that they dislike the real theocracies of the world--mostly Muslim countries, plus these enclaves--and they serve as a useful stick to beat Christians with (because all theocracies are alike, or something).

It occurs to me, however, that there is another reason why the Left is not so adverse to Sharia. It took the uproar over Indiana's (now-gutted) RFRA law to make it really apparent, but I have long suspected this: the Left does not decry Sharia, because they fully intend to implement their own version of it here. Under secular Sharia, non-Leftists are second-class citizens, and observant Christians will be second-class citizens at best.

Equally appalling are these twin facts; that some many on the Left co not see this and appear to be willfully ignorant about it on a large scale; and that most of those who are not so ignorant, actually applaud this result.
