Some of us live in a theocracy

Now I see why conservative Christians are so worried about Sharia law:

Customers who buy bamboo floors from Higuera Hardwoods in Washington State must take any dispute before a Christian arbitrator, according to the company’s website. Carolina Cabin Rentals, which rents high-end vacation properties in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, tells its customers that disputes may be resolved according to biblical principles. The same goes for contestants in a fishing tournament in Hawaii.

The big problem is that companies are allowed to mandate arbitration which can make it almost impossible to get justice (the arbitration outfits get by the companies, how likely is it that they will go against them?), but the addition of religion certainly adds something. I wonder what the story would be if so many companies were mandating arbitration through a Muslim arbitrator? The conservative Christians don’t have a problem with religion seeping into secular life, as long as it’s Christian religion.
