This unbelievable headline caught my eye immediately. Archbishop: Adoption of Sharia Law in U.K. is ‘Unavoidable’
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams, has suggested that it “seems unavoidable” that elements of Islamic law be accepted into the British legal system.
I suggest a better headline would have been: “Archbishop of Canterbury Loses His Mind.” Why in the world would the leader of the Church of England advocate for the imposition of Islamic law in Britain?
So profound a misunderstanding of the proud English and British heritage from the leader of the Church of England it is incomprehensible. Ironically, his comments demonstrate either ignorance of or hostility toward the historic commitment of the British people to freedom and self-determination. The first nation to emerge from the political chaos of the Middle Ages, the defiant victor over the militarily superior Spanish Armada in the 16th century, the last bastion in Europe against the forces of fascism in the century past, the people of the United Kingdom surrender their autonomy to no foreign power, secular or religious. Surrender is precisely what the Archbishop now says is “unavoidable.”
Most astonishing, these comments by the Archbishop disavow the most significant underlying values which have defined British history….
