Rowan Williams, Sharia and the Famous Danish Muslim Cartoons

Rowan Williams, chief honcho of the Anglican Church, or, as he his officially known, Supreme Cheese of the NonEssential Church of England, Cantebury Franchise, has declared that Sharia Law ought to be allowed in England.

Sharia Law, to those unaware of head choppings and related sins of Islam, is based on the Koran. Williams, naturally, as someone claiming to be a Christian, thinks it is fine to support this. Maybe it was the freedom Muslims give Christians in places like Sudan that impressed him?

There's no telling what Willy is up to, but let's remember the view of free speech the Danish Muslim Cartoon fiasco stirred up. A few cartoons that present a view contrary to one Muslims believe caused almost a war in Denmark.

This is what our next president must know what to do about. Whether it is Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton, John McCain or Mike Huckabee, or longshot Ron Paul, the world they inherit is by default antiChristian (all but Paul have declared they are Christians), antiAmerican (all seem to prefer American over other countries), and anti-freedom of Women (the National Organization of Women would have a field day in Sudan._

Where's the Magna Carta?

What I particularly liked was one politician stating that Britian should not have Shariah Law because "we are a Christian nation".

If only Britain knew that!

A Christian has obvious reasons for rejecting Sharia law, but so should a modern society. The Brits need only say two words in defense of a non-Sharia nation: Salman Rushdie.

To be fair, the Shariah Law being proposed is only Family Law- something a lot of states do, like Turkey. It would not extend out to issues like Rushdie.

Indeed, it could be argued that it would be exceptionally good thing- if it was accompanied by standard European Human Rights laws outside of the family. Those laws extend to the freedom of religion and freedom to change your religion. Muslims see that those around them don't have to follow the restrictions of Shariah, and that Shariah can be very unjust, they are then free to make their own conclusions.
