Bashing the bishop

Posted by Tim on Wednesday, February 13, 2008 | Permalink

It would have been nice if all the people who have been foaming at the mouth following the recent comments by the Archbishop of Canterbury on Sharia law recently had have found out what he actually said first.

He's still wrong thought, for the reasons highlighted in this post by the Pub Philosopher. I don't always agree with Pub, but here he points out exactly why religious groups should never be given any power, even as an "alternative" authority that is available to certain sections of society (the post also shows how in many ways the state is what allows freedom, something that most conservative/right-wing people don't seem to understand. But you don't want to get me started on that subject ...)

RIGHT YOU ARE! Were not both the national and global situation as much 'religious' as it is 'political' someone might be able to present a viable point or two in arguement.

While neither the Kaks (infinitely unqualfied) nor hallelujah halwits will admit it, there is not one mention of 'religion' anywhere in Holy Law - all contained in the first five books of the Old Testament. The word 'rapture' isn't found anywhere in the whole Bible! Even so, 'religious' poppycock still commands a great deal of the world's time, effort and energy - to a big fat zero result - except for the atrocities.
