If Sharia is a problem why isn't Beth Din?

I see so many concerned about Muslims choosing to follow Sharia, in the states, for civil cases. Stating the Constitution is the law of the land and such. If that is the case why doesn't anyone complain about some Jewish communities using Beth Din, also only for civil cases?
What's the difference?

  • Is there a specific question/previous CM post directed towards Sharia Law being used in civil cases?

  • Grly, it came up in this linked post but I have seen discussions all over CM about Sharia in the last year or so. As far as I know, those who support using Sharia in the staes would only apply it to civil cases, not criminal.
