Mark Steyn thinks the Anglican bishop is badly mistaken in his Sharia comments.
He thinks the Anglican Church in Nigeria has a much better understanding of the dangerous nature of Sharia.
What do you think of his remarks? (Note: the early part of the interview by Hugh Hewitt is on another topic.)

"There are more Anglicans at Church in Nigeria every Sunday morning than there are in the U.S. and Canada and Britain combined."

Back in the day (doncha just hate that phrase) war was the way to be top dog in the commercial world, nowadays we realise that there is more profit in peace.
I'm not sure anyone ever raided the UK for slaves - it was pretty much the other way round, I think.
Sorry, Victor, Australia has never been at war against England, we have been to war with England and many other allies, too.
Just because you invaded, does not mean that you declared war. The best that you could claim were squatter's rights.
To be fair, what I said was that I wasn't sure anyone had
