Can't say that I am that surprised to read that Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury and part-time Druid, has intervened in the ongoing debate about Islamic dress on British streets by saying that politicians must not interfere with a Muslim woman’s right to wear the veil in public. In a dramatic intervention Dr Rowan Williams, who is backed by other senior church leaders, said that the Government must not become a “licensing authority” that decides which religious symbols are acceptable.
So, the most senior cleric in the Anglican Church sees no problem with Muslim women being imprisoned behind the Burqa and Niqab. He sees nothing wrong with militant Islamists expressing their utter separation from British society through the garb worn by Islamoc women. He sees no harm in a section of those who reside in this country being permitted to continue their drive towards Shar'ia law, as a prominent member of the Muslim Council of Britain announced on the radio this morning. He sees nothing. Rowan Williams is a useful fool.
