I think Sharia courts are an abomination and should be reined in. And the same applies to Beth Din but nobody ever complains about that.
Churches also have their own ways of doing things.

For example, until very recently the Catholic church's approach to priests being involved in child molesting was to hold their own investigation, rap them on the knuckles (very lightly indeed), and move them to another parish. It's only the last couple of years that it's occurred to them that they ought to involve the authorities in actual, y'know, crimes.
