“There is no place for sharia law in Australian society. As our citizenship pledge makes clear, coming to Australia means obeying Australian laws and upholding Australian values. If there is any inconsistency between cultural values and the rule of law then Australian law wins out.”

    That should be obvious. Sadly in many corners of ‘cultural sensitivity world’, it’s not. In a modern world with modern morality, there’s no room for ‘religious law’.

    In the past, religion wholly controlled the law; today law controls the scope and sphere of religion in major parts of the world.

    It is, basically, as more and more people become increasingly able to understand rights less necessary to scare people into behaving decently toward each other.

    Once upon a time, being bad was cast as a fast track to eternal torture from which there could be no escape. Today, the value of being good is more obvious as we can communicate ideas faster and farther than ever.

    Religion, religious truth, religious law was never more than the decorations of subjects that stand on their own merit without religion today. Paint philosophy, law, and purpose with a fancy stories, so to speak.
