18. Sharia Sucks, of course, represents the worst case.

Umm, let's see.

The UK Court system hasn't been compromised, they're still the final authority in disputes regarding Sharia or any other religious doctrine.

Religious "Councils" can provide their own summation of any given dispute, or even provide courtroom testament (as in the USA) but final authority remains Judicial and must abide by UK legal Doctrine, not religious advisement.

Sharia Law and Rape Accusations

Conscripted rape within marriage or otherwise is without a doubt one of the worst aspects of Fundamentalist Islam. But within non-Theistic countries (those not governed by religious leadership) that behavior is not promoted or condoned.

Sweden does have issues with bending local law jurisdictions to allow for Sharia, but if the victim chooses they can take assault/rape cases to Civil Court, given that they have the means to provide legal council and advisement/representation in Court.

That would essentially be viewed as a "renouncement" of their religion by the victim, at least as viewed by Religious Council authority.

Fundamentalist Ambitions on both sides of the Sharia divide

Many of us are aware of Allen West and his politically driven interest in that situation, he's gained a lot of political mileage among Militant Christians by pointing out those problems, as have many Fundamentalists in support of the Religious Reicht wing.

The Old Testament is wrought with quite a few of those same issues, by the way the old testament (Leviticus/Deuteronomy) not only condones but encourages that non-believers be put to death (including women/children), that unfaithful wives be stoned to death, that children who were not obedient could be killed if necessary.

Organized Religion sucks, without a doubt.
