    Yes and it's stupid. But having lived in the UK there is a large Asian population that is Islamic. Uk is loosing its great christian heritage. I think the Archbishop apologized for his remark.

    Hmmm...not quite; they are arbitration and mediation tribunals, not judicial courts, rather like the Jewish Beth Din 'courts' and, as such, their decisions are only legally binding if the parties agree to be bound by arbitration beforehand. Similar principles apply for example to decisions made by ACAS (Advisory Conciliation and Arbitration Service) in employment disputes where ACAS arbitrates.

    That said, TS's comment re us losing our Christian heritage is well-made, unfortunately; we also have a situation where large numbers of Muslim immigrants have failed to adequately integrate, and that spells trouble now and for the future.

    If the muslims want their own laws and courts, they need to go back to their own muslim country, instead of expecting another country to cater to them. England shouldn't put up with this. While it seems harmless now, it could open a real can of worms later.
