Londonistan, here we come

   I usually like to do my own reporting for this blog, but I had to include this post from a British newspaper about two American Christian evangelists who were told they could not witness to their faith in a certain Birmingham, U.K. neighborhood because it’s a “Muslim area.” Read about it here.

   When Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali of Rochester (also of the UK) warned here last November parts of the country were developing into “no go” areas for non-Muslims, he got plenty of condemnation. Then the archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, suggested on Feb. 7 in a speech that Britain ought to institute some forms of sharia law. He got calls to resign for that gaffe but he never really retracted it.

 May I suggest folks take a trip to northern Nigeria, where 11 (at last count) provinces have adopted sharia law, to see what life is like there?
