In light of the fallout from the recent shooting in Texas, conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh says Sharia law is already happening.
Limbaugh said on his radio show Thursday
that on "one of the networks this morning somebody was defending Pam Geller and started saying, 'If we're not careful, Sharia law is gonna happen,'" and the co-host responded, saying that "'There isn't gonna be Sharia law in the United States of America. Just isn't gonna happen. Come on, get real, get real, it's silly.'"
But Limbaugh said that "Sharia law has already been implemented in this country."
"Are you aware that in New Jersey a judge found that an Islamic man could not be accused of the rape of his wife?" the conservative radio host asked his audience.
"A judge in New Jersey found that he could not be charged with it, much less found guilty, because there's no rape in his religion," he explained. "Well, hello. That's Sharia.
"Now, it's not Sharia that has become American law, but it's been implemented," he added. "It's been used."
Limbaugh used the story of the pizzeria in Indiana that came under fire for saying that it would not cater a gay wedding as an example of what Sharia law would look like.
"You must conform ... you must agree, you must comport, you must do what we want or else," he added.
