Gods are the butt of our jokes.

A benevolent God? I didn't know anyone still worshiped one of those. Is it like, Aphrodite?
11/2/2008 9:43:30 AM
I'm sure they feel the same about your god
11/2/2008 9:44:02 AM
...A Scientologist Fundie? The hell?

I see one really stupid man who knows fuck all about anything.
11/2/2008 10:20:13 AM
I guess he's talking about the dreaded "Secular Progressives".
11/2/2008 10:35:02 AM
So benevolent he caused the Apocalypse only once! Globally, at least!
11/2/2008 10:42:55 AM
SP = Secular Progressives in this context, I think.
But it is a disgrace that we now have several systems for administering 'justice' in the UK. Different laws applying to you depending on what you claim your invisible friend is called is wrong.

In before pie chart.
"he is about to be replaced with Allah"
Yeah no not really.
11/2/2008 10:52:06 AM
Allah and the Christian God are the same entity.

Yet another fundie who prides himself on a sense of humour he, in fact, doesn't have.
11/2/2008 11:42:37 AM
a mind far far away
"I see humorous irony in this" So do I, especially when you refer to the christian god as 'benevolent'.

"tireless efforts by SP's to remove a benevolent God from British society"
You can block God with a firewall?
11/2/2008 12:16:12 PM
No, I don't think so, although I am in full agreement with solomongrundy on this.
Sharia law has NO PLACE WHATSOEVER in western courts. PERIOD.
11/2/2008 12:18:37 PM
Benevolent my arse, try reading your bible.
11/2/2008 1:20:21 PM
So do I :)

An agreement was made that trade union groups can provide arbitration services to people who wish to settle their grievances outside of court. Anyone can set up an arbitration panel that can use any sort of logic to help two people resolve a dispute.
This right to have arbitration outside of the main legal system does not mean that courts have devolved their powers. These arbitration panels do not have the power to overrule UK law and cannot 'sentence' people or punish people directly.
For any outcome to be achieved both parties must accept the validity of the court and agree to it's judgment. If they disagree they can just go to a normal court. Also if the 'ruling' removes any rights or liabilities under UK law then it cannot be actioned by a court.
It's a similar situation to a Bet Din court in the UK, whereby:
- It only deals with civil disputes
- The court can only act if both sides agree
- Both parties to the dispute must be Muslim.
English law states that any third party can be agreed by two sides to arbitrate in a dispute, and in the case of Shar'ia law or Halacha, that third-party can be a Shar'ia court or a Bet Din.
The fact of the matter is that people can start these ADR courts because the law allows them after the various laws passed for unions and organizations. Theres nothing wrong with a Sharia court, and nothing wrong with Beth Din court, even though they are Muslims and Jewish. Maybe people on here should step away from the whole "SHaria means killing people!" stance and actually read bout it and see that there are dozens and dozens of interpreations and versions of Sharia. Otherwise, were not any better than the people that make these statements

A worshipper of an imaginary invisible man is whining about the worship of a different imaginary invisible man. I see humorous irony in this.
11/2/2008 2:35:47 PM
Allah is the God of Abraham, the same one worshiped by Christians.
11/2/2008 2:41:00 PM
"After so many years of tireless efforts by SP's to remove a benevolent God from British society, he is about to be replaced with Allah [...]"
Same. Fucking. Deity. Jackass.
11/2/2008 2:42:06 PM
I too see irony in this, just not irony chumleypotts can see.
Psst... Allah and Yahweh are the same god, just different dogmas.
11/2/2008 2:53:30 PM
Ontario has the correct answer: No religious arbitration for anyone.
No Jewish arbitration.
No Christian arbitration.
No Muslim arbitration.
Secular law, and only secular law.

Your God and Allah are both the same God of classical Theism, and thus are equally benevolent.
11/2/2008 3:21:32 PM
Your benevolent god? Oh I guess you're not talking about Biblegod, because he's not benevolent, he's one mean motherfucker.
