Biblical Law sounds like Shiria Law

A group that is gaining power among the Christian Right believes that "since we are a Christian Nation we should be governed by Biblical Law." If you have read Leviticus this means extending capital punishment to many others.

Christian Reconstructionism promotes an interpretation of Biblical Law that includes
instituting stoning as a form of capital punishment for rape, kidnapping, murder, heresy, blasphemy, witchcraft, astrology, adultery, “sodomy or homosexuality,” incest, striking a parent, extreme juvenile delinquency, and “unchastity before marriage.”

Remember the recent link between American Evangelical Christians and the proposed death penalty for homosexuals in Uganda.

The American Taliban is closer than many would like to think.
