Sharia Law

Well, we all have our preconceived ideas about what muslim Sharia law means. Some mild from of it is proposed for Australia.

We have laws, rules, regulations and bylaws enforced or mediated by courts, tribunals, panels and mediation centres and if none of these are to your taste, you can take civil action.

I wonder what possible area these Sharia laws or whatever could deal with that is not already covered by Australian laws?

Rightly or wrongly, we already have a bending of the laws for Aborignes.

Surely muslims are not proposing something that could go against Australian laws?

So where is this going to end? Will christians start telling me I can't work Sunday? Maybe jews will tell me I can't work Saturday? Maybe buddhists will stop me using fly spray?

Ok, Sharia laws or their mediation would only apply to muslims. But there is no reason why other religions could not claim similar rights. Oh dear, wait and see what the baptists have planned.

Hopefully the proponent of this Sharia nonsense is someone from way out on left field.


  1. GRRRRR don't get me started here - if it don't work over in the Middle east with so many factions ripping each other apart and women being put into black glad bags and run over in front of the village because they looked sideways...why on earth would it even be a topic for mention?

  2. Not the way we want to go is it MC.
