The UK isn’t the US, I think there IS voluntary Sharia arbitration courts, there are ones that use Jewish law too.
The problems are:
1) these tend to be unfair to women
2) if people are under pressure from their family, is the choice to use arbitration through a religious institution really “voluntary”?
Similar questions have come up in Canada.
It’s just ignorant to assume that people who are talking about a legal issue in another country are just like American wingnuts who fixate on pure fantasy.

….but the bit about Taqiyya is pure stupid.

If they’re throwing around the term taqiyya, then I’m 110% certain that if you were to dig into whoever’s behind this effort, you’d soon find one (or more) of the hateful Islamophobes. It’s one of their frickin’ code words.

I just now read the whole blog post and saw your last line:

I can say nothing more, other than I’m embarrassed for these atheists.

Yeah, atheists are human too and therefore susceptible to irrationality, ignorance, hatred and extremism, just like everyone else. Imagine my surprise. //

You’re good people b, just keep being the way you are. Trust me when I say I know only too well how you feel when you encounter this kind of crap.

This Captain Atheist character is using atheism as a cover for his bigotry.

Heh, I think somebody didn’t bother reading your whole blog post.

Sometimes a paranoia accusation is somewhat insipid!

Is there a link to the site the petition is on?
Are those people with the dumb tweets responsible for the petition in any way?

US wingnuts would of course be simultaneously claiming that the government is infested with pro-sharia agents, that the Prime Minister was also a Muslim, and that your toys are whispering pro-sharia messages to your children.

Follow the link to my blog. The link to the petition site is in the first line. There are more tweets there as well as comments describing the evolution of my views.
