This should be no surprise. They treat women like second class citizens. Luckily most other religions have evolved over time. Although I've never understood why catholic women can't be priests. That's just stupid if you ask me but it's not my religion so why should I care.
"Boyd was asked to review Ontario's Arbitration Act after the Islamic Institute of Civil Justice requested religious-based arbitrations, similar to those that have been used in Ontario for the past 15 years. Currently in Ontario, both Jews and Catholics can choose religious arbitration if they like."
Bad simile. Jews and Catholics have been in Canada since very early in European settlement. Muslims are a relatively recent addition and fundamentalist Muslims are a very recent scourge. There is no reason to retreat into the middle ages for their sake. What's next, bringing in some idiots from New Guinea and allowing them to eat human brains in downtown Montreal in the name of multi-culturalism and religious freedom?
The Catholic church has very little influence over communities at large, here in Ottawa, which has a large French Catholic population. I can't speak for the Jewish community, but I can say it's highly doubtful that anyone uses the Catholic church for anything involving civil matters. Advice or mediation maybe, but not as an alternative to the legal system. I'm sure there are exceptions, but those exceptions are probably few and far between.
It depends, will they be eating Jew brains?
Downtown Montreal.....it's quite possible. I think that would probably be acceptable. No monkey brains though, that would be wrong.
it depends all on how you interpret. there are even muslim-women muftis/prayers/Imams .
There you have it; Islam must be a peace loving religion focused on gender equality.
How would be interpreted in the instances of family (civil) law ie: inheritence, divorce, custody, abuse etc.
