The Archbishop of England wants to legalize Sharia laws

Again, we see how the evil forces of religion combine in a unified goal – to undermine democracy. The Archbishop of the Anglican Church (and also this branch of Christianity’s spokesman) called for aspects of Islamic sharia law to be adopted in Britain during a lecture about religions and jurisprudence. According to the dear Archbishop, it “seems inevitable” that elements of the Muslim law, such as divorce proceedings, would be incorporated into British legislation. Downing Street, however, moved quickly to distance itself from the Archbishop’s remarks, insisting that British law would and should remain based on British values. But what is British values to this day? What is European values? Some of the British laws are totally insane (I love that one that says that you’re not allowed to deny a needy Scotsman to enter your home if he needs to go to the bathroom) and some of the European laws are also stupid (for instance, the angle of a banana must be exact, otherwise you cannot brand it a banana and sell it as such). But do we really need to make our society even dumber?

Muslim law must be combated, as well as the redundant laws that we already have.

Formalizing sharia law would be wrong both democratically and philosophically! Is it just me who is worried about this development?
