KNOXVILLE (WATE) – A Shari’a Law event that some say discriminates against Muslims has been moved from its prior location to a local church.

“Act for America” planned to hold that town hall at Farragut High School, but that stirred up some controversy between a UT Muslim group and organizers of the event.

They called the event “educational,” but last last week, Knox County Schools Superintendent Dr. Jim McIntyre sent a letter to organizers, stopping them from using the school.

He said it had become a distraction to the educational process.

According to a local newspaper ad, the new venue will be the Union Cumberland Presbyterian Church.

  1. Sounds like quite the clown show. As we all know, America’s 1% Muslims have already taken over Oklahoma, Georgia, and Texas with Sharia law!

  3. At least they’ve moved it off of school/public property, but considering it’s a quasi religious group who wants to substitute their religious ‘laws’ for our secular laws, it’s very ironic. People’s private religions my influence their personal behavior, but it has no business in our government.

  4. Uugghh! I’m getting SO friggin’ sick of these people! I would love to know about one single instance of Shari’a law ever being implemented in the U.S., but, these idiots can never cite one example, because, there has never been one!

  6. I wonder if this presentation on Shari’a will actually call in any licensed experts on shari’a law, an Islamic scientist, scholar, or even just an imam to explain what Muslims actually think shari’a law is as opposed to what some scared Americans think it is.

    My money’s on no…

  8. Sharia law has led to six Islamic countries legalising child marriage. They now allow grow men to marry children. In Pakistan among other Muslim countries, a woman who gets raped has to have four male witnesses to prove her case. These are facts. Be careful what you wish for America, Islam is destroying London and most European cities.

  10. You know, Matthew, your words might carry some weight if there actually WERE crowds of Americans “wishing” for the institution of “Sharia law”, but the reality is that this is simply not happening. Moreover, I have to wonder where you saw the destruction of London and “most European cities”. The last time I visited Europe (including London) the cities I saw were doing just fine. They certainly were more racially and ethnically diverse than when I lived in Europe in the 50s, but somehow, nobody seemed too upset at being waited on in a shop by a French citizen with Chinese features or sharing a seat in a train with a German citizen in a hijab or an African dress. The Europeans are surviving despite being more cosmopolitan.

  12. I live in London, I’m English. We have 85 Sharia Law courts in the UK. We have 400 British Muslims fighting in Syria. The most popular name for a new born baby in the last three years *Ali*. We have Mosques being built at an alarming rate. Muslim patrol gangs taking alcohol off people, and telling women to dress properly. Halal meat being served to all the pupils in schools. Our prisons are full of Muslim men who’re forcing people to convert. 50% of Muslim men are unemployed, 75% of Muslim women are unemployed. I won’t even mention the infighting between Muslim sects in Europe, or soldiers being beheaded on our streets. You fill a place up with 3rd world, you become 3rd.

  14. Matthew, I’m sorry you haven’t figured out that there is a lot of misinformation as well as information online. We both have computers, but unlike you, I am able to check my sources. I also have access to those dusty old things called “books” – especially the ones in the reference section of an obscure place called a “library” which helped me with my education at an even more mysterious place called a “university” (It’s full of professors and other strange people you may not have heard of – but someday you may get out more.) Sorry, mate, you certainly do NOT know more than me – but you will never “get” that.

  15. BTW – I know how easy it is to develop a siege mentality, too. You may want to look into that.

  16. Why don’t they prevent events such as these. I mean…seriously ?
