The Christian Equivalent of Sharia Law?

Someone literally responded to my making fun of Trump with, "Well Ilhan Omar wants Sharia Law here." And I thought, "Yeah, and every elected Christian wants to make the Beatitudes our law." And then I thought, wouldn't that be something? Elected officials who provided for the meek, comforted those who were mourning, and considered peacemakers to be the people most worth emulating.

Matthew 5:3-12 New International Version (NIV)

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
    for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
    for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
    for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
    for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
    for they will be called children of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
