Classically Liberal: Archbishop says some Sharia law in England should be passed

February 15, 2008

The fact that the Archbishop’s words were condemned from each and every side should have alerted to the other fact, that he may have actually said something else, and something thoughtful.

The “problem” is that the Archbishop explained his ideas in 8 pages full of words: and those were simply too much for journalists to comprehend. So they went for a completely misleading soundbite, and all sorts of people and politicians jumped in commenting: but they were commenting the soundbite, not the Archbishop’s thoughts.

As further evidence for this, with each passing day the brouhaha is steadily dying down: one wonders how many simply needed such a period of time, to read and digest the original speech.
