Islamicism and McGuinty

On the anniversary of that infamous day [now see this], it seems a bit surreal to read the report that Dalton McGuinty has rejected the proposal for Shariah law in Ontario family courts.

This is surprising since the attitude of McGuinty and the Ontario government always seems so inclined to non-offense that it will stand for nothing (what about the Muslim vote in the GTA?).

Islam has an aim of controlling political power under their theocratic rubric. Shariah law in family courts would be only the first step.

I wonder if Central Canadian governments have the will and conviction to stop it ultimately.

By contrast, Christians are increasingly marginalized from public discourse, yet Christianity by its nature embraces the marketplace of ideas, and does not seek to coerce by force but to persuade by truth-telling [Examples to the contrary are inconsistent with the Christian faith, while Islam's politically theocratic impulse is entirely consistent with its own belief] .

It's funny (and fearful) how Islam in Canada may expose the ideological bankruptcy that much of the Modern Canada has been built around (cf. here).

The question for Albertans is, "Where do you stand?"
