Whatever way you look at it this is just wrong.You can argue over whether mohammed was a voilent man or just a fluffy dude a bit like a latter day
Noel Edmonds but with a bigger beard,it's missing the point.
Extremist religion in neither welcome in the UK or should be dismissed so easily.
The very history of this country should be a huge warning to us all where fanatical religion leads.
How many Britons have been tortured,killed,massacred,burnt,hung,drawn and quartered or died on the numerous battlefields from the River Boyne to
Culloden solely or partly due to religion.
It's never been clear cut.At Boyne there were Dutch,English and Irish protestants and even some catholics fighting for protestant King William
against Irish and English catholics and protestants fighting for catholic James II.
At Culloden the Hanovarian army of mostly German and Lowland AND Highland Scots fought Bonnie Prince Charlie and the mostly Highland army but there
were protestant lowlander and English among them too.
What about the English Civil War with Puritans,catholic Irish,Calvanist Scots.In fact,a previous poster suggested returning to absolute monarch,well
King Charles I was our last real absolute monarch and his refusal to change cost him his head in 1649 so don't think we want to go back there but
there's some merit in breaking away from the shackes of Europe !!!
The point is and the above examples barely scratch the surface that fundamental religion has torn this country apart over the centuries and the legacy
can be all too brutal still especially at an 'old firm' match or in Belfast so the rise of a strong 'foriegn' religion has NO place in this
Anyone has the freedom of belief and the right to practice their religion without fear of persecution but when they start to inflict it on the local
community,to make demands or expect specific rights they should be denied.It's as simple as that !!!
This is a secular country,if there is a national religion (I ascribe to no religion or god) then it would nominally be christianity as the Queen is
head of the church,defender of the faith etc.
You can practice Islam,Juddiasm,Paganism,Wicca whatever you like but DO NOT expect the laws of customs of the land to change in favour of your
faith,if you want Sharia law,or to make criticising Islam,mohammed and being homosexual a crime then move to an Islamic nation.
This is the UK,we are not Islamic,we are secular and that is how it is and how it will stay.
These fundamental TV stations that broadcast such messages of hate should be investigated by the law and if they continue charged though no doubt
they'll just move their message to the internet.
I know we're seen as too tolerant,too weak in this country to deal with this kind of religious extremism by both the US and the Islamic
fundamentalists but it needs to be brought out into the open and sorted out while it still can.
If we turn a blind eye,sweep it under the carpet and hope that if we ignore it it'll go away then it'll build and build till it explodes in a very
violent and bloody way,mark my words !!!
