You've Got to be Kidding!

The Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams has clearly lost his mind. He has suggested that introducing Sharia Law into the British legal system would help with "social cohesion."
I can't begin to express my revulsion at this idea, especially with the case of the two Texas girls allegedly being murdered by their father in what "Sharia Law" calls an "honor killing" fresh in our minds.
Much of our legal system comes from an ancient British origin. Why would the modern day UK even consider adopting such a regressive system that would take away all the womens' rights that have been won over the centuries.
If Islamic immigrants can't abide by the laws in the countries they have chosen to live in they should go back to where they came from.
Meanwhile, the Prime Minister who appoints the Archbishop of Canterbury should begin a process of looking for his replacement.

This is such a bad idea. If the British government starts making and applying different laws for different groups, what is next? Three-month sentences for dishonor killings?

The Archbishop has gone off his rails.

Could not agree more with you, Jipzee.

One suggestion--alter the man's gender and ship him off to a sharia-practicing country, permanently.
