Reader comment on item: Enforce Islamic Law in Canada?

Submitted by Peter Dent (Canada), Oct 9, 2005 at 20:00

On one hand you condemn Sharia law, while on the other you support other religious arbitration. What's the difference? They are both basing their decisions on archaiac personal beliefs that do not match the principles of the Canadian justice system.

The reality is that no religion has any business enforcing law, and religious courts of any kind do not belong in Canada. I am very proud of my government's decision to seperate church and state, and stand up for justice.
