(ThisIsLondon) - The Archbishop of Canterbury has today said that the adoption of Islamic Sharia law in the UK is "unavoidable" and that it would help maintain social cohesion.
Rowan Williams told BBC Radio 4's World At One that the UK has to "face up to the fact" that some of its citizens do not relate to the British legal system.
He says that Muslims could choose to have marital disputes or financial matters dealt with in a Sharia court. He added Muslims should not have to choose between "the stark alternatives of cultural loyalty or state loyalty".
Dr Williams said there was a place for finding a "constructive accommodation" in areas such as marriage - allowing Muslim women to avoid Western divorce proceedings.
Other religions enjoyed such tolerance of their own laws, he pointed out, but stressed that it could never be allowed to take precedence over an individual's rights as a citizen.

ALERT: Britain Surrenders To Islam !
THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: England's spiritual head, the Archbishop of Canterbury, has conceded to the inevitability of Islamic Law in Britain. For nearly a generation now, the liberal attitudes and policies of the British Isles have sentenced the Christian population of the nation to death by birthrate. Artificial contraception, combined with abortion on demand, and the abandonment of Christian sexual morality, has resulted in a decreasing native population. As a result, Great Britain has been forced to import as many foreign immigrants as possible to provide enough wage earners for taxation purposes. This keeps their social security and universal healthcare system afloat. However, the only people who want to immigrate to Britain are the same people who want to immigrate to France, Germany, and the rest of Northern Europe. They are African and Middle Eastern Muslims, many of whom reproduce at over five-times the birthrate of the native English population. You do the math. A Muslim takeover of the British Isles is virtually irreversible now. Islamic law will soon follow. The head of England's 50 million Anglicans now attempts to prepare his flock for the inevitable...
