USA statutes (I'm not sure whether Federal or State) recognise polygamous marriages among Mormons. As this precedes in date the Muslim 'problems', it may well serve as a precedent to be used by Muslims in their push for 'Western civil rights", which as we well know, they demand whilst denying them is countries under shari'a laws.

I would suggest you do your homework and learn to distinguish between mormons and the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Further there is NO law in the US that allows polygamy. There are laws that ban the practice. In many instances the law, as is becoming very common, is not applied. In any event Britain is not endorsing Sharia law but some very misguided church representative is. There are far too many Arch Bishops who are evil i.e. Gene Robinson supporting gay marriage and Williams. What surprises me is that the Pope has not removed these idiots from office. Does this reflect that the catholic church is indeed the church of the devil? Only fast and decisive action from the pope will remove this doubt.
