The Islamization of Britain

archcant.jpg

On BBC 4's "World at One" radio show, the Archbishop of Canterbury prepared the public for Sharia law in the U.K.

Dr Rowan Williams [the Archbishop of Canterbury] 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. ..

...He says Muslims should not have to choose between "the stark alternatives of cultural loyalty or state loyalty".

First, the British government insists civil servants avoid all mention of Islam or Islamists when dealing with Muslim fanatical extremists, lest their co-religionists be offended. Now Sharia law in Britain is seen as inevitable. What next? Brits getting arrested for naming stuffed animals Mohammed?

A merger or conservative Christianity and conservative Islam certainly seem like the logical next step. The Anglican communion has been throwing fits over the American Episcopal church living in this century rather than the 1700s. The fantasy that once women are back in there rightful place, and gays can be executed, that God will be all happy and give everyone a new car and cheap oil.

Sharia law and the law religious conservatives would like to impose on society differ very little.
