Sharia Law in the US

I'll admit watching the tea party patriots I have been mystified by the signs saying "no Sharia law in the US".  That is until I heard Newt Gingrich at the value voters summit.  I've been told that this is because President Obama is a secret Muslim.  First of all there is no evidence of this.  Beyond this Newt might have a point.  Over the past several years there has been a movement to codify the 10 Commandments into US law or people saying that they already are.  The reality is there are couple of commandments in the law (killing, stealing), but many others are nowhere to be seen (honor the mother and father, no Gods before me).  There seems to be immense confusion over sharia law, because for the most part it comes from the 10 Commandments and Leviticus.  That is right, the Christian God Law and the Muslim God Law are largely the same.  Enforcement is different since countries under Sharia law are operating like they did in the 12th century the punishments are like they were in the 12th century. 

I don't want to see any God based laws even if they are written by the Cafeteria Christians so that the good stuff is not in the law like women having their heads covered, modest dress, eating pork,...  The Taliban ran a country based on God's law and look at what a fun place that was/ is.  This is just such a non-issue in this country, but do a google search and you get 674,000 hits.  Does anyone really believe that we will see Sharia law here?
