You don’t need the brains of an Arch Bishop

Dr Rohan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, is “shocked” by the reaction to his comments about Sharia law inevitably becoming parallel to British law. I am shocked that he is shocked.

I had always assumed that you had to be fairly bright to be an Archbishop. Apparently not!

This isn’t about religion; it is about how laws work. Would anyone seriously accept an American carrying a gun around London just because it is legal to do so in America? Or a Parisian smoking in a cafe just because it is legal in France?

National laws are just that and people who live within the borders of a nation must accept the laws of that nation.

Simple.

  1. Why does anybody really care what a religious leader says about another religion becoming parallel to British law? If the bish had his way we would all be forced to follow his religious rules; no shopping on Sunday, no chocolate sales during lent, and certainly no Catholic sympathisers as PM.He is just another religious fanatic trying to divide and rule the country according to laws written down centuries ago. I think he has proved once again how little relevance he has to modern society.
