Comments on: Rowan Williams says some sharia in Britain unavoidable Religion, faith and ethics Sat, 23 Apr 2016 23:25:07 +0000 hourly 1 By: Jim Hanley Sat, 23 Feb 2008 04:03:00 +0000 An enslaving force

Few people realize the extent of the reach, influence and overwhelming power of religion. Nor do many people have any idea as to the enormity of the Vatican’s financial resources!

Very likely, the Vatican is the wealthiest entity by a factor of 100 that the world has ever seen. And its tax-free status, weekly and “willed” donations of millions, when added to income from all its many worldwide investments, positions those who control that fabulous bottomless pool of wealth as the world’s most influential lobbyist or purchaser!

This may be one of the reasons the Pledge of Allegiance was plagiarized and altered from “one nation indivisible” to the bigoted “one nation (divided) under God.” And why 100 senators disgraced our country and themselves by reciting the religious pledge on the steps of the senate and before television beamed to the entire world!

The time has come to discredit the outrageous assertions by the Ponzi-racketeering charlatans who promote the plague-like disease religion that survives by warping the minds of innocent children and fools, robbing them of their candy and toy money, and enslaving them to a life as shills who help perpetuate the criminal religion schemes.

“Secular humanists,” “non-believers” and other sane and rational people know that no proof survives the fairytales of a magician named Jesus or his magic miracles, nor is there any proof whatsoever that there is or ever was a supreme creator God. Yet this and other lies are used to perpetuate their rotten scheme religion.

People who live in the “real” world refuse to accept silly lies, fairy tales and farce as fact, whether it be about “Santa Claus” “The Tooth Fairy,” “Donald Duck,” a “Jesus” or a “Creator God.” Nor should they be lumped with or considered analogous with a gang of thieving, lying, mind-warping pedophiles who use a how-to manual of pornography, pillorying, stoning to death and other forms of outright bigotry for their weekly stimulus to more proselytizing.

The senators who said that fallacious rendition of our once great Pledge of Allegiance shall be remembered as the promoters of a criminal enterprise and the abettors or cohorts of a bunch of thieving slavers who invade every phase of society with their lying assertions that “our country was founded as a Christian nation.

With their plagiarism of our once great Pledge of Allegiance, their repeated attempts to force their “Godism” on all schoolchildren and their ever increasing use of all forms of media and gimmicks to mesmerize, indoctrinate and bludgeon the American people with their outrageous, endless efforts to dominate us all with a theocratic form of government renders them criminals!

And the likes of George W. Bush and his ilk by giving millions of dollars to faith-based groups is bidding them “Godspeed!”

The abandonment of divine law is what led to the downfall of Western civilization and is damaging other nations as well.

Often Jewish people are permitted to have disputes and even criminal cases tried in their own courts so why should Muslims be denied the same opportunity?

The archbishop gets kudos from me; as for other so-called religious leaders that still think they they have a lock on the right path but fail to remember that tolerance and harmony is part of their creeds are to be asked to step down.

It is only in the Quran where it is stated that “people of the book” are okay; of course that only applies to those who actually follow their faith as established and not by the morphed version they have today.

This is no different but arouses the same religious fears and, therefore, hatreds that rhythmically occur throughout history. Anglicans can be proud that the
Archbishop is willing to speak bravely in this matter – it is a mark of Anglicanism.

By: Macsen Fri, 08 Feb 2008 21:14:18 +0000 Why on earth a man who devotes his life to some idiotic religion has anything he says taken notice of is beyond me.
This man should be banished to a land that no-one has any interest in.

By: brian moriarty Fri, 08 Feb 2008 19:36:16 +0000 Its time all religion was banned so people can start working and playing with each other.

By: Charles W Fri, 08 Feb 2008 19:16:48 +0000 Christianity os the religion of this country, and whilst we accept any religion in this country those who live in the UK have to live by our laws as would be expected in any other country. I think Rowan Williams has lost his way. His suggestion can never be adopted and if hw believes what he says then its time to retire.

By: George T. Fri, 08 Feb 2008 18:57:02 +0000 The introduction of any Sharia law would be the thin end of the wedge. Once established it would be exploited to enlarge the area of practice until it was in direct competition with the British/European law.

By: steve Fri, 08 Feb 2008 18:51:34 +0000 All I can say what an idiot Rowan Willams is. Does he live in the real world. The law of this land is the way it is in this country.
Its time he stood down.

By: Mike T Fri, 08 Feb 2008 17:57:49 +0000 This is only an issue because the UK public instinctively knows that it could happen tomorrow. Williams is only saying what the government is thinking and ministers’ feeble protests to the contrary mean nothing.
