Multiculturalism, Europe and Islam - what are the options now?

I read that as, 'a Registrar has to sodomise weddings in the UK', and thought that would be a bit of a bummer...
That was only civil partnerships, before last year.
 
As I believe it is in France.
It is
You are also required to do the civil part 1st - although they tend not to be to fussed on that if its the same day.

Up until certain events in Paris the French state de facto allowed people from a particular demographic to just do the religious ceremony and therefore claim benefits/ tax allowances for wife and kids etc.
After said incident several individuals were fecked off at the high port when trying to make claims as they weren't legally married and the law was now going to be applied.

Working to rule still one of the best ways to screw / stitch anyone or thing up

It's a shame we have to learn things the hard way.

That's 'tolerance' for ya.
 
isn’t it the case that a Registrar has to solemnise weddings in UK regardless of what religious ceremony is taking place.
I thought so too. If one decides that you're not going to have a registrar involved then it's not legal no matter who your sky pilot is.

Exactly. In England most vicars are authorised persons to sign the register, if not then you need to get one of the local authority registrars to come and do the necessary. Alternatively you could get a wedding celebrant to do the wedding and go to the registry office afterwards to officially sign the register (cost about £50).

Actually mass repatriation is perfectly possible. More than 200,000 Japanese troops and civilians were repatriated from Malaya at the end of the last war, and the Germans and Russians shifted whole populations.
 
The problem with allowing Islamic marriages is that it could end up clashing with the rules against polygamy.

Also, listen to this podcast, it's really good:

 
SAS airlines just released its Gillette moment, a racist commercial stating that there is no Scandinavian culture and with a black African saying " our Viking heritage" .

Its gone down like a lead balloon.

Good for a laugh! I'm sure Erdogan is an avid reader of his op eds.

'The power vacuum in the global system is plunging the world into chaos. So how will this vacuum be filled? Although we are on the verge of scary developments, this uncertainty also translates into new opportunities for fringe countries of the global system. Is the Turkic and Islamic world ready to take advantage of these historical opportunities? Despite all its weaknesses, the Muslim world must recognize the values it could bring forth as the sole source of humanity and peace.'
