Religious debate and the law

I find it very interesting that a group of mosques in New Jersey has gone to the trouble of taking out advertisements denouncing, or at least renouncing, "Wahabism", the peculiarly fundamentalist version of Islam which gives rise to the anti-Jewish preaching, conversion by force, and terrorist "jihad" version of Islam. While they are doing that, our Glorious Home Secretary is trying to protect it and to prevent any debate.

And now even one of his own "Think Tanks" - Civitas - is saying that his proposed law is a bad idea. They can say this far better than I, so read their argument here. Will this influence our Home Secretary? Probably not, like our Illustrious Prime Misery, he is as arrogant as he is ignorant of religious matters - a very economical package really.
