Remember this? It’s what I was referring to in my last post when I talked about partial adoption of Sharia Law in places like Britain.
The Archbishop of Canterbury says the adoption of certain aspects of Sharia law in the UK "seems unavoidable".
Only a religious mind could think this. My favourite way of avoiding the adoption of Sharia law is to not adopt it. It seems to me that this would be a fairly effective weapon in the battle to not adopt Sharia law.
He says Muslims should not have to choose between "the stark alternatives of cultural loyalty or state loyalty".
But….yes they should. Precisely because we are a multi-cultural society. State trumps culture because disputes can cross cultures, the borders of what’s considered ‘a culture’ are at best unclear and because in many cases (as exemplified by Sharia law) people don’t get to choose whether they want to be part of that culture or not.
Williams is a dishonest, disingenuous dick. What he really wants to say is that Christians (particularly Christian clergy) should get special treatment, but he’s too flat out scared to say that because it (rightly) sounds so horrific. So he instead plays up the importance of religion for its own sake, rather than just the trappings of his own religion. It makes him feel wise and magnanimous. It makes him feel open-minded and saintly. But he’s advocating that lots of women be subjected to misery and violence. He’s advocating restrictions on Muslim women that are beastly.
And his reason for doing so is this: he wants to keep on feeling important for as long as he can.
The only reason he’s not as evidently evil as the pope is that Anglicism is Catholicism Lite.
