If you sacrifice democratic values to satisfy religious demands then yes; "taliban" seems like a suitable label. Imagine this: person A wants to kill person B (because his religion dictates this of course), person B obviously does not want to be killed. In its great wisdom the government decides that a compromise is in order; namely that person A can assault and maim person B, but there is to be no killing. Great, they compromised... As if that word somehow magically makes the decision good or moral.
