    To be with your violent friends I presume? Islam is also the fastest growing religion in Burma too
    It's also the only hated religion in Burma, by virtue of it's own barbarity!

    Besides, to be a Buddhist requires you to be a pacifist. Therefore Buddhists =/= violent. Since pacifism is one of Gautama Buddha's core teachings, being violent would strip you of the right to call yourself a Buddhist. I've just explained this to you in another thread as well you silly person! :facepalm2:

    Islam is the fastest growing religion mate. People are seeing it for what it really is
    in the world mainly by birth rate and by the reality its not been around as long as any other faith
    in the UK non denomination group has grow far larger than muslims, so no it cant happen. besides the fact that other faiths such as hindus and sikhs are growing in the uk, and they wouldnt allow that to happen either. and if all else failed , im sure their would be an open door policy for israelis to settle here before that was ever allowed to happen...

    You don't need or have the right to enforce your religious beliefs, or indeed lack thereof, on anyone else.
    I never said enforcing, but by due political and democratic process

    Writing Islamic law into British law is enforcing it on everyone else.

    If Islam ever becomes the majority religious group is irrelevant.

    The UK is a secular liberal democracy. And that, my friend, is that.

    To be a Muslim means not to be violent, I explained this in another thread. For the record, in Burma they discriminate against all religions apart from Buddhism

    It's not a phobia, it's logical. No argument, just silencing opponents nice

    Taking an objective view of Islam and deciding that it is backwards and corrosive is not a 'phobia'

    Labeling your opponents arguments as such is a crappy way to commit to a debate
    Cannot agree with this more

    What if it is democratically voted for?

    Still unjustly enforcing it on anyone who didn't want it, which would be every non-Muslim and a fair proportion of the Muslims. Religious beliefs are best kept private and not put anywhere near legislation.

    Do you agree, to serve the majority religious group that they are allowed to have Islamic teachings inscribed into law?

    Surely a sensible person would say yes as this is only fair
    you are making too many assumptions:

    -that Muslims would somehow magically manage to agree on what constitutes "sharia law" and what could/should be inscribed into law

    -that Muslims themselves would want "shariah law"

    -most importantly, that Islamists will ever become the majority religious group in the UK (i.e., more followers than "no religion at all" or "just a little bit of religion"), and that they will be actually able to organise politically

    But let us assume that, by some strange quirk of fate this could happen. An hypothetical UK (United Kaliphate of Great Britain and Northern Ireland) would still be limited by universally recognised rules, such as abolition of inhumane and degrading punishments (sorry, no cutting off limbs on opposite sides allowed : not even on the same side)

    It would still have to respect basic human and political rights (e.g. it could not exclude non-believers from the vote, or from the position of Caliph) etc etc

    In short, it would become a strange, next-to unrecognizable "Islamic State".

    In any case, as we can see every day, all majority-Muslim States which declare in their Constitution that their order is based on shariah, then spend most of their political energy into trying to define what exactly shariah is... and this, often simply leads to civil war (another typical feature of Islamic history)

    so, in a nutshell, it would be quite a messy state of affairs

    tolerant people don't throw personal insults right and left

    if you want a discussion, you should know better than making such comments

    In my opinion this thread does not provoke sensible debate but religious antagonistic hatred.
