Last week the Tundra Tabloids reported on a “sharia info seminar” that took place in the state of Tennesse, as a reaction to some proposed legislation being mulled over to make it against the law for sharia to be introduced as an alternative form of jurisprudence within that state. The organizer of that event, William Coley, a convert to Islam, dared the TT to come and prove him wrong.

If you or your readers feel that anything untrue is being said at these events then i would like to PERSONALLY invite you to come and challenge the info in person…..William Coley organizer of sharia lectures.
Well the Tundra Tabloids would love to debate the dawa spreader, but doubts that William Colely would want to foot the bill to fly the TT all the way from Helsinki to Knoxville Tennesse.
I suggest that he invites Robert Spencer to his event to debate the supposed “wonderful attributes of sharia” and how such an anti-Western medieval form of jurisprudence is not in conflict with the US Constitution.
As Robert Spencer notes: “Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, whom John Esposito classes as a “reformist,” says that “the Muslim jurists are unanimous that apostates must be punished, yet they differ as to determining the kind of punishment to be inflicted upon them. The majority of them, including “the four main schools of jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi`i, and Hanbali) as well as the other four schools of jurisprudence (the four Shiite schools of Az-Zaidiyyah, Al-Ithna-`ashriyyah, Al-Ja`fariyyah, and Az-Zaheriyyah) agree that apostates must be executed.”
So I ask you William Coley, do you dispute Sheik Qaradawi’s contention about the schools of Islamic jurisprudence? As with the writings of Karl Marx and Adolf Hitler, to truly know and understand the Koran, hadiths and sharia, is to despise them.
So invite Robert Spencer to your event to debate sharia with you, and remember to bring the video cameras and good lighting, I wouldn’t want to miss that one,all the way from far away Finland. KGS
