Wife beating now legal in 'Great' Britain

So...... Sharia law courts are now up and operating in 'Great' Britain.

"Five sharia courts have been set up in London, Birmingham, Bradford and Manchester and Nuneaton, Warwickshire. The government has quietly sanctioned that their rulings are enforceable with the full power of the judicial system, through the county courts or High Court. Previously, the rulings were not binding and depended on voluntary compliance among Muslims."

Oh... they have been there for a year? Sure, as voluntary religious courts that people could opt out of if they wish. Now, the courts are being backed by the judicial power of the British court system. I can only assume that means prison, fines, and physical beatings will now be available to the religious judges of the Sharia courts.

Physical beatings? Yes..... Sharia law here.......

Great Britain is no more.... now they have even give way to foreign law in their land. Victims are prosecuted, criminals are compensated, producers are taxed to oblivion, and the honest citizens who can afford to leave... are.

Merry old England--one mustn't chase foxes with horses and hounds because it's inhumane. One should never physically fend off a burglar because it is a crime. There's universal health care for all because civilized nations should not neglect the poor. There's equal justice under the law unless you happen to be the wrong sex, the wrong color, or viewed as being under the authority of a state-sanctioned religion.

There's all this turmoil about the booze and blades culture. Then the British decide it's fine to let Sharia judges, who think lopping off hands and labias is proper, to hear cases.

And they think us right-wing, gun-loving, cowboys and religious fanatics should should be healed?
