When nothing changes, when the world spins round, when only clocks mark the passing of time, it feels to me like maybe I am already dead.  The world needs people who cause conflict, make peace, and galvanise option, they remind us of what we believe in, the limited time we have to achieve our dreams, and the value of our own liberty.
Today the Archbishop of Canterbry, Dr Rowan Williams got bah humbugged by every British politician from Ann Widdicombe to Nick Clegg, what was his crime?  For suggesting that the present unofficial system of sharia courts in Britain be recognised by the  British government.  You can read the Archbishop's lecture entitled 'Islam in English Law' here
If you read Dr Rowan Williams text, I think you will find his argument well written, being both complex and compelling.  It is a shame therefore that the issue is seemingly bluntly dismissed by all and sundry.  I beg you to read what the Archbishop wrote, or skim Paul Varly's article 'Williams is snared in a trap of his own making'.
One thing is clear, the Church of England is lucky to have Dr. Williams at it helm, he obviously took the job for more than the opportunity to wear silly hats.  And for that I deeply respect him.
If i had to sit though the upcoming Anglican General Synod later this month, I too might start to think of ways to pass the responsibility of religious legislating off to other faith groups.
