Islam: Prince Charles is getting involved to stop the horrendous practice of killing Muslim who convert to another religion. He met with both Muslim and Christian leaders with the sorry predictable results. " Among the Christians at the confidential meeting was an Anglican archbishop from a part of Nigeria where Islamic Sharia law is enforced. Others included the Bishop of London, the Right Reverend Richard Chartres, and the Pakistani-born Bishop of Rochester, the Right Reverend Michael Nazir-Ali. It is believed the Muslim group, which included the Islamic scholar Zaki Badawi, cautioned the Prince and other non-Muslims against speaking publicly on the issue. It argued that Islamic moderates could have more influence on the traditional position if the debate remained largely internal. A member of the Christian group said on Friday that he was "very, very unhappy" about the outcome. Patrick Sookhdeo, the international director of the Barnabus Fund, which campaigns on behalf of persecuted Christians abroad, stressed that he was speaking on the record only because details of the meeting had already leaked." That argument about Islamic moderates having more influence is a cop-out as I have seen very few results happening when the "moderates" get involved. This is just code speak for not wanting to upset the more radical elements who first targets would be the moderates who are supposed to speak out. In other words, they are cowards. "Patrick Sookhdeo, the international director of the Barnabus Fund, which campaigns on behalf of persecuted Christians abroad, stressed that he was speaking on the record only because details of the meeting had already leaked. He urged the Prince and Muslim leaders in Britain to criticise openly the traditional Islamic law on apostasy, calling for it to be abolished throughout the world. "My view, and I think the other Christians shared it, is that when something is wrong it must be stated as a wrong." Other Christian leaders were more sympathetic to the worries of the Muslims that public criticism could prove counterproductive." Excellent advice, if you speak up, they might speed up the normal rate of killing people who convert. Complete cowards.
