Anglican Dhimmi: Time for Sharia in Britain
The Archbishop of Canterbury says the adoption of certain aspects of Sharia law in the UK "seems unavoidable".So I guess that little item, equal protection under the law, is just not a British value?
Dr Rowan Williams told Radio 4's World at One that the UK has to "face up to the fact" that some of its citizens do not relate to the British legal system.
Dr Williams argues that adopting parts of Islamic Sharia law would help maintain social cohesion.
For example, Muslims could choose to have marital disputes or financial matters dealt with in a Sharia court.
He says Muslims should not have to choose between "the stark alternatives of cultural loyalty or state loyalty".
I cop to dereliction of duty as a blogger: Itís so common and dispiriting that I donít know what to say about it anymore.Indeed, this is so ridiculous. Nothing left to do but file this under Genital Puppets.
