Shariya law in Canada: another perspective

At the beginning of the month I called attention to an article on setting up shariya law courts here in Canada to judge disputes among Muslims. I suggested that this might be carrying multiculturalism too far. However, Iain Benson, of the Centre for Cultural Renewal, approves of this development and suggests that it already has its parallels within the christian and jewish communities. He makes a persuasive argument.

By the way, Benson's comments are part of the Centre's new CentreBlog, which is a new arrival on the blogging scene.
