Sharia by stealth

According to a report in The Times,
Islamic law has been officially adopted in Britain, with sharia courts given powers to rule on Muslim civil cases.

The government has quietly sanctioned the powers for sharia judges to rule on cases ranging from divorce and financial disputes to those involving domestic violence.
Notice the line: "The government has quietly sanctioned . . . "

If sharia ever comes to the US, this is how it will happen and why everyone who cares about the separation of church and state must be vigilant.
