MSNBC host Ali Velshi believes laws protecting life are “Christian Sharia.”
Velshi was on talk radio host Dean Obeidallah’s Sirius XM show when the two men argued Christians and conservatives are “imposing” their religious beliefs on the country.

Obeidallah, who is Muslim, said it has driven him “crazy” to hear criticisms of Islam in America when, in his view, it’s Christians who are trying to force their personal convictions on the rest of society, namely when it comes to protecting the lives of the unborn.
The MSNBC anchor said Obeidallah is “exactly right,” accusing Christians of practicing “Sharia.”
“If you believe again that you don’t want people to have abortion rights, but you live in America, which constitutionally says that you can’t impose a state religious belief on everybody else, but you do it, that’s actually Shariah,” said Velshi. “That’s actually what everybody else is complaining about what Shariah is.”
He went on to say that Muslims have never forced their religion on America, but claimed Christians have.
“You’ve taken the good book and made that the law book,” Velshi continued. “That’s the wild part about this whole thing. That’s what this is; this is Christian Shariah.”
The conversation between Obeidallah and Velshi comes as the U.S. Supreme Court is considering whether to grant a request from President Joe Biden’s administration to preserve the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s approval of mifepristone, a drug used in more than half of abortions.
Last week, a federal appeals court overturned a lower court ruling blocking access to mifepristone. That decision by a three-judge panel on the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals came after a district judge had paused the use of the drug the previous Friday.
The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the matter this week.
