    Yeah, but this isn't Saudi Arabia, this is Britain.

    And Britain is absolutely terrified of offending anybody to any degree. So as a result, we let absolutely anybody into the country, allow an entire culture to take over small pockets of the country, grow in number continuously, and then start imposing their culture on ours.

    I'm not one for defending 'traditional' British culture, because clearly, a lot of it is absolute nonsense. But I'm all for defending us against infilitration from cultures even worse than our own. Islam definitely counts as one of those.
    Yer obviously this is Britian. I was simply saying the introducing a such an exteme law that only benefits a distinct minority of the population is just silly. And that even suggesting changing the law in Saudi Arabia to suit a British minority would be met with absolute disdain.

    Did you think i was in support of Sharia law from what i said ?

    basically the sharia law is actually very fair but i dont think it would actually work in britian.
    those countries who impliment the sharia law for e.g arabia have the lowest rape, crime rates etc. so i would think it does have many advantages.
    as a muslim it wouldnt actually affect me but having this law would change the lifestyles of non- muslims but nevertheless it can change the society we are living in...

    Crime rates are probably so low because of the punishments inflicted for specific crimes. Death penalty for sodomy, amputation of hands for theiving. How, in any way, is Sharia law "fair"?

    No, I was saying that the reason Saudi Arabia would reject British law is because they are a lot less caring about who they offend.

    Britain, however, would gladly bring in Sharia law if they thought it would offend enough people if they didn't.

    well, would you rather decrease the number of people that are dying because of crime etc. or leave those few murderers alive. i dont think sharia law would work in this country but it is better having more people alive rather than a few people dead because of it. (btw america also has the death penanlty and in the sharia law there is only death as a punishment in certain circumstances)

    So you truly believe it's fair for homosexuals to be punished by death? Who said anything about murderers? I was talking about homosexuals and theives, both of which have to undergo vile, disgusting, out-dated punishments in the name of "Allah".

    thats why i was saying it wouldnt work in this country.. and personally i dont have a problem with homosexuals. and theives dont get the death punishemnt. all i am trying to say it is does work do reduce crime rates etc. as seen by statistics same as in certain areas in america which have the death penalty there is less crime.

    at the end of the day the countries that do have it benefit from it.. but personally i know it wouldnt work in britian where everyone has different religions..

    That's slightly different to middle-Eastern Muslims killing white Christians.

    Every study I've ever seen has demonstrated that the impact of the death penalty on crime is non-existant.

    I didn't say they did, theives get their hand's amputated. Is that fair? I don't care about whether crime rates are reduced (homosexuality shouldn't even be a crime), I care more about human rights violations, and Sharia is a blatant disregard for them.
