Well there is no Sharia in England...but I cant imagine they are happy.

Its gotten worse...last month they voted and said Women couldnt be Bishops...now they have said that openly homosexual males CAN be Male, EVEN IF they are in a Civil Union, so long as they are "Chaste"

How does one GET INTO a Civil Union, if one is being Celebate in the first place isnt that one huge paradox in all this.

There is no Sharia law declared in England? Ran across this article, which made me ask the question:

Those are not Legal Courts in terms of recognition. England has been tollerant of private courts for religious affaires governing themselves so long as they dont apply their laws to others, BUT its no more then a verbal contract...in theory if you were a muslim and this private court didnt settle in your favour, you could go to the real courts to prevent you from harm...does that make sense?

it was originally a Jewish thing, and as England basically turned a blind eye to it, the Muslims wanted to do the same...but its not full Sharia...its only Civil Law...because anything more would contravene British Law which obviously cant be tollerated..

...unless you listen to the Archbishop of Canterbury...who thinks Sharia should be fully implemented, but only govern the Muslims of course...sucks if your a homosexual muslim I suppose

Thanks for clarifying. When I originally read that I thought, WOW that can't be good for gay people. Heck, drunks and druggies as well.....
