Archbishop offers food for thought
What a shame about the Archbishop of Canterbury, left, and his pronouncements on making Sharia law part of the English legal system. I am happy to see mosques in this country and the way most Muslims practice their religion puts many so-called Christians

I am happy to see mosques in this country and the way most Muslims practice their religion puts many so-called Christians (including myself) to shame.
What a worse shame, though, that Christian churches and even Christian religious services are not allowed by law in Saudi Arabia.

Naturally, most of our Government ministers are opposed to the Archbishop's suggestion and I think I know why.
They are all worried about what would happen to their parliamentary parties if Sharia law were introduced here.
Given the number of MPs who might possibly be stoned to death or have hands amputated, I can sympathise with their concerns.
