Personally I feel that it means "society" is bending over backwards for a specified religion.
If plans were afoot to build a Church Of England 'superchurch' do you think the authorities would oppose it?
Whereas no other religion has that precedent, besides presumably Catholics.
And how on earth do you work that out?
Catholics are the UK's largest minority and are also the only religion legally discriminated against.
Are you seriously saying that the Anglican Communion has not been given preferential treatment over the years throughout the UK?
What does it mean?
Seems there is a plan afoot that the people have no say in or choice.
What plan is that?
Almost like they are forcing you to go along with their agenda, or what-have-you.
Please don't get me wrong; I have genuine concerns about creeping Islamification within the UK, but the problem is not as widespread as some would
have us believe....yet.
And I have an intense dislike of the more extreme interpretations of Islam and those who preach and believe it.
And I feel these concerns need to be addressed as soon as possible.
But the FACT is that there is a very large Muslim community in London, a large percentage of whom are active worshippers - and not just the 'brown
And that community has the financial wherewithal to fund and maintain a 'super' mosque.
My personal concern is that extreme forms of Islam are taught at the mosque - I suspect that inside such a large community a certain amount of
extremism and fanatacism is unfortunately inevitable.
But at the same time it can be argued that extremism would be noted and reported in such a large and high profile establishment.
Denying Muslims, or anyone for that matter, a place to worship will not eradicate the problems we have with Islam.
In fact by forcing them to worship in secret or seclusion and isolation we will only increase their sense of alienation etc.
