I just read an article about people protesting Sharia Law in the United States. I have a question….”where in the United States is Sharia Law actually being practiced?”( Article on USA Today)
Which brings about my second question….”If you are NOT Muslim, why in tarnation do you care about Sharia Law?” It doesn’t apply to you.
It seems to me that we in the United States have forgotten how to protest. People are protesting things that we don’t even have to deal with…like Sharia Law. So I thought I would put together a short list on how to protest properly.
- Know why you are protesting. You’d think this would be obvious, but it isn’t.
- Don’t just carry a sign with a catchy slogan. Actually be capable of explaining to someone what that sign means.
- Have a “REAL” problem. Like global climate change…or single payor insurance…or social programs for the poor and disabled.
- Don’t protest just to get your picture in the newspapers or on a tv blurb. You will inevitably come across as a total twit.
