Global blasphemy law: Just say no! LOUDLY

For years the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) – comprising 57 Islamic nations – had campaigned for  a ‘Defemation of Religion” UN resolution.

In other words a global blasphemy law.

Many observers noted how ‘blasphemy’ laws were used in Islamic nations to terrify, subjugate, and in some cases, murder religious minority groups and non-believers, and so they fought tooth and nail against this UN resolution for many years.

On the 25th March 2011, after 12-long years, the Islamic countries admitted defeat and set aside their campaign.

However, diplomats from Islamic countries warned at the time that the council could well return to campaigning for an international law against religious defamation in the future.

Well now they don’t have to, because the Anglicans will do it for them. And it’s not just the Anglicans, the Catholic Maronite Patriarch of Lebanon has joined in also.

Hezbollah and the Arab League are demanding the same, and we will no doubt witness other Islamic groups use this momentum to make the same call.

And why are these calls being made now?

Because of the reaction to the Innocence of Muslims film.

It’s the height of foolishness to support this call for a global blasphemy law, which will only strengthen the arm of Islam against our cherished freedoms.

Make no mistake, this is a dangerous and perilous moment for Christians and all minority groups within predominately Islamic nations.

Anyone should be free to defame a religion if they so choose, and religious sensibilities should be mature and secure enough in their identity and beliefs to rise above it.

If some religious extremists are not mature enough, then condemn their reactions and behaviour to perceived offense.

But for goodness sake don’t usher in a law to legitimise them.

Be warned.

    Not only the clash of civilisations but a civil war of values is now raging within Western culture, the enablers of evil must and will be defeated.

    There is no defence of ignorant do-gooding, the dangerous consequences of the OIC sponsored islamophobia global blasphemy law has long been cautioned against.

    The appeasers and collaborators can only be morally corrupt and should be purged from power.

    Agreed.

    The silencing of free speech is the curse of our society. I’d rather be jeered at myself than be arrested for criticising some favoured group.

    A God who is offended by a cartoon or a film must be a very small God indeed.

    @Gordon,

    Or in this case their very small prophet, could be the mohammadians are in fact inflating the power and importance of a human prophet over their own god, an islamic blasphemy own goal.

    The question then is which has worship supremacy in islam, allah or muhammad?
