Those of us in the campaign against membership of the anti-democratic EU are involved because we value our unique way of life, our democracy, our sovereignty and our system of law. Sadly, those who dislike their own country so much they are quite happy to see these values undermined by tying us ever closer to the EU resort to calling anti-EU campaigners racist as their own arguments are so badly flawed they have no other option but to resort to the irrational.
Their arguments are soon destroyed when people of other ethic backgrounds support the very things we are campaigning for. In fact in my opinion the two clerics in this land today who make the most sense are not of white British origin, they are the Archbishop of York, John Sentamu, and the Bishop of Rochester, the Rt Reverend Dr Michael Nazir-Ali, who unlike the fuzzy thinking of the Archbishop of Centerbury, Dr Rowan Williams, actually talk some common sense (This is turning out to be an appropriate posting for a Sunday).
Further to my previous posting on the introduction of Sharia law in this country, it was pleasing to read in the Sunday Telegraph an article by Dr Michael Nazir-Ali why we should resist Saharia law and defend our system of one law for all. Although the Bishop of Rochester would never have seen this blog, within his article he voiced almost exactly the same concerns which I posted earlier. He was concerned that the rights of women, so hard won over the years, would be seriously undermined by Sharia law and expounded on other concerns too, especially the fact that the decisions made in Sharia courts in this country are contrary to public law.
I would urge you to use the Sunday Telegraph link above and read his article, it makes sense and is well written. I will also be interested to see how the anti-British apologists will try to tarnish him - they can't brand him a racist.
If you scroll down the comments you will come across this posting by Elizabeth Ann Bidulph who is a tireless anti-EU campaigner and devout Christian: "As an English Christian lady, I feel I now have the right to demand the right to live under the Christian, Anglo Saxon Laws of King Alfred the Great, as recent laws, including those undemocratically imposed upon my nation by the EU, run contrary to my beliefs, my culture and to the ancient, English Christian based laws I was once content to live under. English Christians must now claim the equal right of setting up our own English Christian courts. I rest my case."
