    We aren't violating any principles. Freedom of voluntary contract is an important liberty. By denying it we are violating the principles on which our legal system was based, i.e. freedom from arbitrary rule.

    :confused: I thought I asked 'can tell me how many Saudi's are "Chrsitians"', not 'what is the percentage of the UK muslim population?' :rolleyes:
    You implied there was no point in Christians in Saudi Arabia asking for their system of law since there are next to none.

    I countered by saying that the number of people wanting Sharia law in the UK is next to none.

    No. Simple As. Why should one religion be treated differently, compared to others. Only because the particular religion becomes outraged by the simplest things, and uses fear to suppress anyone acting against them.
    I agree with this. No, it should not be used in Britain. If they want to be tried against shariah law, go commit the crime somewhere the system is being use already.

    i agree with ratsr. one day there could be a muslim holocaust!
    Don't be so sure. Muslims may be the minority in UK, but in the world, you can hardly use such terms. Consequently, I can't envisage a 'holocaust' of a certain people to happen when their numbers alone surpass a billion.

    Now back to the topic! (:

    If you can't resolve anything in a English Law Court, no aspect of any other law can help. I would vehemently oppose any such incursion on the British Justice System. :mad:

    That argument has to rank among the most moronic ever made. It is astonishing how often it's used, that none of the morons who make it seem to realise how absurd it is.

    Perhaps, if you don't like the law in this country, you should seek to change it by legal, democratic means. There's a lot I don't like about the law in this country; I think the libel laws are horribly repressive and need changing, I think that prostitution should be legalised, I think that tax loopholes need to be closed. Should I then go and live in another country because I dislike aspects of our law?

    I'm just glad Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Thomas Clarkson, Emmeline Pankhurst etc saw your kind of argument for the ******** it truly is.

    The truth is people don't always opt into the system, particularly in Islam where women are considered inferior, often they will be coerced into accepting a Sharia court. Our state has a responsibility to protect all citizens, something which can only be achieved through keeping to the rule of law.

    I'm not sure whether someone said this already but Islamic ideology and Capitalism/Democratic ideology shouldn't mix. You either have a country which follows the Islamic laws 100% or you have a country which follows the Capitalist regime.

    Loosely, I suppose.

    Are you saying that Islam works best with Socialism?

    A fair point. To which I'd respond by saying do you think that a man who would force his wife or daughter into opting into a system of justice she didn't want would allow his wife or daughter to launch a civil case against him? I doubt it. I believe that a woman in that position would probably end up getting a Sharia decision (or no legal decision at all) whether we allow Sharia Courts or not. Having legitimate Sharia courts would mean that the woman would see some form of justice as opposed to none at all.

    I think Islamic ideology has certain aspects of socialism and capitalism.

    No, laws should be underpinned by logic and reason, not religious beliefs.
