If you're worried about radical Islam taking over America you're worrying about the wrong thing.

Should we be alarmed that religious groups with theocratic tendencies and ultraconservative social views are trying to impose their values on the rest of us?
The question isn't about Islamic fundamentalists seeking to bring Shariah law to the West. It's about faith-based groups in Virginia opposed to Bob McDonnell's ABC privatization plan.
In the past several days the governor's proposal to sell off the state's liquor monopoly has come under fire from the Virginia Assembly of Independent Baptists, the Virginia Interfaith Center, and the Religious Herald, a publication of the Baptist General Association of VirginiaJack Knappexecutive director of the Virginia Assembly, says his group "opposes alcohol altogether," according to a news story earlier this week by
The Times-Dispatch's Jeff Schapiro. "But since it's a legal product," Knapp says, "I want as much control as possible. You can't have control if you privatize."
