The Twatbishop of Arsebury seems to have come out with his stupidest bit of pseudo-theological/political mish mash yet – he thinks we should incorporate some aspects of Sharia law into the legal systems in the UK. I’m not even going to get into the following the commandments of your faith debate here because frankly it is totally bloody irrelevant: in a civilised country the Law is the Law for everyone and all citizens are meant to be treated equally before it, enjoy the exact same priviliges it affords and follow the same rules or suffer the same consequences for violating it. The idea that different parts of society should be allowed to run to different legal standards when it suits them is utterly foolish, divisive and a recipe for disaster – where would you draw the line once you allow such a stupid idea into practise? And won’t every eejit with any belief system be out demanding special rules for them? Should we have special laws for Scientologists so Tom Cruise feels comfortable here? For Quakers? For those who follow the messiah Brian? Sorry, I don’t have to go with your legal code, I’m a follower of the Great Prophet Zarquon…

What’s even stupider about the Arsebishop’s ill-thought out comments is that they will more than likely make already strained relations in our multi-cultural society worse because many Britons will see this and think, here we go, our way of life under threat from a foreign culture, if they don’t like it why don’t they go live somewhere else. Sadly that bigoted view is heard all too often already and when a subject like this is brought up it seems to me more than likely all the stupid old fool has done is hand the bigots another weapon so they can turn to alarmed citizens and say, see, we told you these people aren’t like us… What the hell was he thinking? Then again what can we expect from a man who can’t even control his own crazy eyebrows??
