Archbishop of Canterbury Surrenders to Islamic Law

Posted by madcap on February 9, 2008

From Catholic World News:

Islamic law “unavoidable,” says Archbishop of Canterbury Archbishop Rowan Williams told a “World at One” radio broadcast that for the sake of peaceful coexistence in a diverse society, British lawmakers should come to some “accommodation with some aspects of Muslim law, as we already do with aspects of other kinds of religious law.”

The top prelate in the Church of England explained that many Muslims living in Great Britain today are uneasy with the country’s legal system and deeply devoted to their Islamic faith. For these people, he said, the adoption of some form of shari’a law could allow for a compromise between “the stark alternatives of cultural loyalty or state loyalty.”

From TimesOnline:

Archbishop of Canterbury ‘should resign’ over Sharia row

The senior Synod member, who insisted on remaining anonymous, told The Times: “A lot of people will now have lost confidence in him. I am just so shocked, and cannot believe a man of his intelligence could be so gullible. I can only assume that all the Muslims he meets are senior leaders of the community who tell him what a wonderful book the Koran is.

“There have been a lot of calls today for him to resign. I don’t suppose he will take any notice, but yes, he should resign.”
