    Maybe ignoring direct examples of Williams' version of "opt-in theocracy" works in the pulpit, but it doesn't fool anyone thinking with our logical minds.

    Williams is not arguing for just private arbitration, which Muslims can already choose to be sharia (or the I Ching, for that matter) if they mutually agree in cases that don't violate the law.

    Go ahead and explain how kind, liberal, harmless Archbishop Williams is not advocating instutionalizing theocratic defiance of civil law in the examples he offered including

    The issue of whether Catholic adoption agencies would be forced to accept gay parents under equality laws showed the potential for legal confusion, he said.

    You're offended? Good. I posted it as part of a strong, clear offense against theocracy. You can assert faithy claims that it's not theocracy or avoids equal protection, but logic and facts are no friends to your argument.
