How about this? She can keep the hijab and be punished for the DUI under Sharia law. Drunkeness is normally punished with a flogging. I wonder how fast she'll re-identify with America first.

I would like nothing better than to never, ever see another burkha. However, their presence at the moment does send a signal to the sleeping that they are becoming more and more, and may awaken the said sleepers and provoke them into action.

Secondly, it does make them rather easy to identify. *wink*

Mmmm, making my mouth water. I've got to ask, though (being in England), what are winter onions?

Eating food sacrificed to idols is forbidden to Jews, but not always to Christians:

1 Corinthians 8:4-12
So then, about eating food sacrificed to idols: We know that an idol is nothing at all in the world and that there is no God but one. For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many "gods" and many "lords"), yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.

But not everyone knows this. Some people are still so accustomed to idols that when they eat such food they think of it as having been sacrificed to an idol, and since their conscience is weak, it is defiled. But food does not bring us near to God; we are no worse if we do not eat, and no better if we do.

Be careful, however, that the exercise of your freedom does not become a stumbling block to the weak. For if anyone with a weak conscience sees you who have this knowledge eating in an idol's temple, won't he be emboldened to eat what has been sacrificed to idols? So this weak brother, for whom Christ died, is destroyed by your knowledge. When you sin against your brothers in this way and wound their weak conscience, you sin against Christ.

This means that there is no problem with you eating it - unless so doing will offend another Christian, or cause them to doubt.

The Savigars have been in this country since the Norman invasion of 1067-1070, so I think you might be labouring a point here. There's a church near me founded by the family, called Saint Vigor (say it with a French accent 'san vigor').

TBH, though, when I saw his first name was Delwyn, I did expect someone of a darker shade than myself. :-)

I like the 'rabbit hole' bookmark, but I don't think I can afford the ink to print many of those! :-(

Me too, Firecrest. Last night I watched an old St Trinian's film and the shots of London and English towns and countryside almost made me weep for what we have lost.
