Islamic states to reopen quest for global blasphemy law

 A leading Islamic organization signaled on Wednesday that it will revive long-standing attempts to make insults against religions an international criminal offence.

The bid follows uproar across the Muslim world over a crude Internet video clip filmed in the United States and cartoons in a French satirical magazine that lampoon the Prophet Mohammad.

But it appears unlikely to win acceptance from Western countries determined to resist restrictions on freedom of speech and already concerned about the repressive effect of blasphemy laws in Muslim countries such as Pakistan.

As if to underline the point, a conference in Geneva of the World Council of Churches (WCC), which groups the world's major Protestant, Orthodox and Evangelical churches, urged Pakistan to abolish its blasphemy law, which carries a possible death penalty.

Cripes!  Even the WCC is against the Muslim demands.  The WCC could most accurately be renamed:  "The World Council of Wishy-washy Mainstream Churches"

Maybe I'm too cynical, but I truly believe that these protesters just want to kill Westerners and burn American flags regardless of any provocation.
In other words, the film is an excuse to do what they want to do anyways, and not the reason for the protests.

Interesting juxtaposition between this post and the previous one about the FFRF. would our super-atheists be punished for stating that there is no God/Allah/whatever?

Converted Christians in Iran have had a rough time. Just by acknowledging they are a Christian makes them blasphemers.

I think that we should dust off the neutron bomb and exterminate the vermin before they get us.

It seems to me that blasphemy laws violate this idea:

Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.
— Romans 12:19

If someone commits blasphemy, God is the one they have to answer to, not men. Blasphemy laws turn that on its head.

In the case of Islam, it's clearly not about protecting "Allah", it's about exerting power over others; to keep them enslaved to Islam.

I'll bet the Brits will be the first ones to go along with this attempt at imposing Sharia Law. Hey, wait a minute. Sharia Law is already "officially recognized" in Britain by the govt. and the church of England.

The difference is that the Christian is taught to react to criticism in love with compassion and forgiveness, while the Muslim is taught to hate and be violent to anything or anyone anti-Islam.

My solace comes in knowing that I will be forever basking in God's wondrous glory and love, while the Muslim roasts in the tormenting horror that is the pit of Hell.

Unfortunately, the sad truth is, either we eradicate Islam or they will eradicate the rest of us. You can pet a mad dog all day long and he'll still bite you.

If Allah is god, why does he need protection? Muslims are implying their god is weak.

Here is a great idea for wearing out the Islamic rioters.

"Quest for global blasphemy law."

Is that code for Sharia Law? The only law Muslims will settle for is Sharia, and only a complete fool would not see that.

Should be an international law to abolish islam. Islam is not a religion, it is a death cult, like the followers of kali in India.
