No Matter, They Don’t Really Have a Constitution Anyway

How is that Lefty do-gooders manage to be so willing to dispose of pluralism? Chief chin-scratcher of the former Church of England believes that some features of Sharia law are inevitable in the UK.

Dr Rowan Williams, symbolic head of the world's 70 million Anglicans, argued that other religions enjoyed tolerance of their own laws and called for "constructive accommodation" with Islamic practice in areas such as marital disputes.
First of all, when did 3% of the British population get the leverage to impose laws on others, when no other Muslims in reasonable, democratic societies outside of majority Islamic nations seem to need it?
He stressed that such practice should not take precedence over an individual’s rights as a citizen.
Take any man who says that, and just put him in a dress. Since when in the sphere of lefty-do-gooder culture did anything considered a ‘right’ (a list of which includes all of life’s needs, except for civilization, as we find in this case) not take the place of anyone else’s faith? Where does that ”so just don’t have an abortion” argument fit into tacitly or openly promoting a canon legal system in the civil code?

Thirdly, when did the Church of England lose so much of its leverage as a social entity that it feels compelled to resign itself to tribal factions getting their own laws?
Asked if the adoption of Sharia law was necessary for community cohesion, Dr Williams told the BBC: "It seems unavoidable and, as a matter of fact, certain conditions of Sharia are already recognised in our society and under our law, so it is not as if we are bringing in an alien and rival system."
Of COURSE it’s alien and rival – it’s an imposition on civil society to enforce imposed religious laws! Hello! McFly! Remember the enlightenment? I’ll bet not.
Whereas Almighty God hath created the mind free; that all attempts to influence it by temporal punishment or burthens, or by civil incapacitations, tend only to beget habits of hypocrisy and meanness, and are a departure from the plan of the Holy author of our religion, who being Lord both of body and mind, yet chose not to propagate it by coercions on either, as was his Almighty power to do . . .

- Thos. Jefferson, 1786

222 years ago, in that “great before” when promoters of Islam want you to believe that any society they now feel humiliated by was somehow “inferior” to them then.
