Lost in the furore over Rowan Williams is a rather more interesting initiative about the relationship between religion and the state: Caroline Cox's bill to limit the influence of sharia law. I think it is a thoroughly good thing, and a skilled piece of politics. But it also goes to the heart of the difficult notion of consent.
TAGGED: Rowan, sharia law, Caroline Cox
