    Wait, we have a hivemind too these days?

    And applying Sharia in a society where the majority of the people want Sharia is entirely logical.

    Same here. I'm not a Muslim with family, marital or financial disputes.

    How can it be any different than using christian laws?

    Because I don't live in a Muslim country. But, since it appears to be entirely "opt in", I can't really fault it.

    Fuck yes. Fuck you.

    Could people start actually talking about this thing intelligently instead of just going 'yes' or 'no'?

    Maybe this is why I hate sharia law.


    Maybe, just maybe. I don't like laws that the government has no or little control over.

    No Brittan isn't likely going to be hanging gays. Not any time soon. It's still a step in that direction.

    It's your choice Brittan. It's your laws. I'm just putting out my feelings.

    So you see sander. FUCK THAT JUDGE. We don't need more bigotry. Anywhere.

    Dude, it's supposed to be a decision to settle family disputes and other minor quarrels. Nobody mentioned the sharia-based community law would overrule British law, or allow things that aren't allowed under British jurisdiction.

    And they certainly wouldn't have 'little control' over it.

    Anything in that direction. Muslims do not need it to practice their religion. It is not needed to be used.

    Wow this is a dumb argument.

    'Hey it's not necessary so now they shouldn't be allowed to do this!!!!'
    What?

    I don't really get the position towards this, either. Care to elaborate, Ah-Teen?

    i personally think that the sharia is no law at all. at least not in a western sense. y'know, ive grown fond of our infidel western ways, namely the separation of secular and religious 'law'. so... applying a law that lacks ONE fundamental basis makes this at least a very questionable gesture.

    otoh, the only appliances of the sharia i know stem from ogrish or other sites. and what i DO know: the sharia might have a different view on women and their respective rights. yes, that gives me a biased view on this topic.

    so: i am very much against applying any sharia law, and be it in the smallest imaginable instance. thats a dangerous slippery slope there.

    If Muslims want the Sharia Law, please go to Muslim Countries. This is the west. We like our separation between religion and state.

    More and more, I begin to think that there ins't enough space for westerns and muslims in the same planet...

    In a democratic society it is detrimental to grant laws to a specific sub-society, no matter how huge the minority may be. That is, if it touches on the fundamental laws the majority of people in the society live by. It only fuels alienation, discrimination and feelings of inequality and leads to an even more shattered society. That doesn't mean it is not happening, just that it shouldn't IMO.

    You really dig the word bigotry, huh? So I assume you are against death sentences in general?

    If a law only applies to one section of society regardless of how large or small I'd feel it to be a form of discrimination which intentional or not would pretty much create another schism for people to hate each other over.

    I'm totally against it.

    A little thick headed huh? Re-read his post and stop being a prick.

    Guess what happens to gays under Islamic (sharia) law? They're executed. Yep, Islamic law sanctions the murder of homosexuals.

    By adopting even the smallest fragment of that completely fucked up "legal" system, Britain has given it validation. When a civilized society starts implementing the radical hate-spawning animalistic way of doing things (Even for a small portion of the population), you've got a big problem.


    *edit*


    Oh, and murdering someone based on their sexuality doesn't fit your definition of 'bigotry'?
