Christianity- the antidote to cultural brainwashing

The death of Billy Graham reminded me of how terrified I had once been of being brainwashed.

I remember deciding to go on a quest to discover If Christianity was true or not and walking into an Anglican Cathedral to hear an evangelist talk about Jesus. His day job was being a vicar in York. He wanted to help people examine who Jesus actually claimed to be.

“What if they try to brain wash me” I found myself thinking? Someone, at some time had managed to plant that thought in my head and it had stuck.

What I didn’t know was that these mild Anglicans were the last people on earth to want to do any brainwashing, but that other people and other ideologies would be along shortly who would be much more likely to try.

This week, Archbishop Welby refreshingly broke with what had been described as ‘the quisling culture’ of the Church of England. He reversed his predecessor’s stance on Sharia law. He writes in his new book that sharia law is not after all, compatible with British laws and culture.

Indeed. Not many people know what sharia law entails or commands in practice. Here are some of its requirements:

Theft is punishable by amputation of the hands, criticizing or denying any part of the Koran is punishable by death, as is criticizing Mohammed, or leaving Islam, or being found guilty of adultery if you are a woman. Homosexuality is punished by death. Muslim men have sexual rights to any woman/girl not wearing a hijab. A man can marry a girl and consummate a marriage from aged 9 and above. Girls’ should be genitally cut; a man can beat his wife for insubordination; a man can unilaterally divorce his wife; a woman’s testimony in court carries ½ the weight of a man’s; meat to eat must come from animals that have had their throats cut un-stunned (halal).
