Dhimmi Archbishop: We must allow Islamic Sharia in Britain

Does it get any worse than this? Give Archbishop Williams Dhimmi of the year for this one.

I can’t believe the pathetic nature of the UK these days.  IT’s like every day another news story of the cultural destruction of the UK. Just unbelievably sad and pathetic.

The Archbishop of Canterbury caused consternation yesterday by calling for Islamic law to be recognised in Britain.

He declared that sharia and Parliamentary law should be given equal legal status so the people could choose which governs their lives.

This raised the prospect of Islamic courts in Britain with full legal powers to approve polygamous marriages, grant easy divorce for men and prevent finance firms from charging interest.

His comments in a BBC interview and a lecture to lawyers were condemned at a time when government ministers are striving to encourage integration and stop the nation from “sleepwalking to segregation”.

The Prime Minister rapidly distanced himself from Dr Williams’s view. Gordon Brown’s spokesman said: “Our general position is that sharia law cannot be used as a justification for committing breaches of English law, nor should the principles of sharia law be included in a civil court for resolving contractual disputes.

“The Prime Minister believes British law should apply in this country, based on British values.”

Dr Williams’s words opened a chasm over Islam between senior leaders of the Church of England, who are already trying to deal with an Anglican war over gay rights which broke out after he was appointed archbishop.

The Bishop of Rochester, Dr Michael Nazir-Ali, is facing death threats following his warning last month about Muslim “no-go areas” in Britain.

And the Archbishop of York Dr John Sentamu, who has been fiercely critical of Muslim extremists, said last year that “the imposition of sharia law, Britain as a Muslim society – that will never happen”.

In his lecture, 57-year-old Dr Williams said that “we have to think a little harder about the role and rule of law in a plural society of overlapping identities”.

    So, big deal. Britian showed it’s balllessness before and during both previous world wars, admittedly less than France, but appeasement was their mantra until common sense reappeared. Dumbass liberals don’t know we ,are at war with an insane system called islam. And you know liberalls are all casterates.

    When one moves from one country to another, one must recognize the “law of the land”, doesn’t matter if you like it or not. It’s a ridiculous proposal by Williams that hopefully will be shut down quicker than I click the submit icon.
