Cake or Death Cartoon 42 (14 Feb 2008)

Dr Rowan Williams, Archibishop of Canterbury, delivered a talk in which he dealt with the role of religion in modern society. Faith issues (such as having Halaal or Kosher butchers, or even Christian doctors not performing abortions) already have specific caveats in civil law. His analysis of the future role of sharia (Islamic) law in contemporary British civil produced an overwhelmingly negative reaction from the UK press – something which can only be put down to a combination of paranoid and uneducated (Dr Williams does use academic/philosophical/theological language) editors.  The cartoon was first published in the BT, 14/02/08.
