* Alabama Republican US Senate candidate Roy Moore was interviewed by Vox.com…
Some right-wing conservatives think Sharia law is a danger to America — do you?
There are communities under Sharia law right now in our country. Up in Illinois. Christian communities; I don’t know if they may be Muslim communities.
But Sharia law is a little different from American law. It is founded on religious concepts.
Which American communities are under Sharia law? When did they fall under Sharia law?
Well, there’s Sharia law, as I understand it, in Illinois, Indiana — up there. I don’t know.
That seems like an amazing claim for a Senate candidate to make.
Well, let me just put it this way — if they are, they are; if they’re not, they’re not.
“Up there. I don’t know.”
*** UPDATE *** I didn’t realize this, but Politifact has already looked into the matter…
After checking with multiple experts, we found no evidence of such a community. What we did find was a satirical Daily Beast article headlined, “Next, We Muslims Bring Sharia to Indiana.” We rate Moore’s statement Pants on Fire.
