Special Laws For Muslims
If you want to live under Sharia law...stay in Iran, Iraq, or whatever stuck-in-the-Middle-Ages country you came from. In the running for spotted dick of the year is the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Roman Williams. From the BBC:

Dr Rowan Williams told Radio 4's World at One that the UK has to "face up to the fact" that some of its citizens do not relate to the British legal system.

Dr Williams argues that adopting parts of Islamic Sharia law would help maintain social cohesion.

For example, Muslims could choose to have marital disputes or financial matters dealt with in a Sharia court.

He says Muslims should not have to choose between "the stark alternatives of cultural loyalty or state loyalty".

Again, if modern western society doesn't work for you -- stay where you are.

If, within your own backward community in a western society, you would like to subject yourself to primitive religious dictates, well, have at it. But, under the absolutely daffy and dangerous notion that religious nuttery would be incorporated into or recognized by the law of the land, well, the already oppressed women of Islam could be further oppressed. To name just one example.
