NJ Governor Christie: Creeping Shariah is ‘Crap’ and ‘Crazy Talk’
Cue the right-wing attacks.
New Jersey’s governor Chris Christie has appointed a Muslim attorney named Sohail Mohammed to the state bench of New Jersey. Recently, he was confronted by a reporter who wanted to know if Christie was worried this would lead to Shariah being forced upon the Garden State. Christie responded by calling that entire assertion a load of crap.
Christie’s exact quote from the interview:
“This Shariah law business is crap. It’s just crazy. And I’m tired of dealing with the crazies.”

I’m not a big fan of Christie, but I feel and know that credit is due here. Standing up to the rabid theocratic and xenophobic Republican base and their overt hysteria during these times is difficult to say the least. Bravo.
It’s amazing what actually knowing a Muslim can do to one’s perception.
