Blasphemy Laws Not Dead After All

Well the new Irish Blasphemy law is effect in Ireland now. Here’s what some think about the law.

“Whether a person is atheist or any other, there is in fact in my view something not totally human if they leave out the transcendent… we call it God… I think that if you leave that out you are not fully human.” Because atheism is not a religion, the Irish blasphemy law does not protect atheists from abusive and insulting statements about their fundamental beliefs. While atheists are not seeking such protection, we include the statement here to point out that it is discriminatory that this law does not hold all citizens equal.” Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor, 2009
Perhaps the atheists should incorporate as a religion and all the religious zealots would have to stop calling us “not fully human”…in Ireland anyway.

“May Allah curse the Jews and Christians for they built the places of worship at the graves of their prophets.” This quote was attributed to Muhammad on his death-bed as a warning to Muslims not to copy this practice of the Jews and Christians. It is one of several passages in the Koran and in Hadith that can give a scriptural foundation to Islamic anti-Semitism, including the assertion in Sura 5:60 that Allah cursed Jews and turned some of them into apes and swine. Muhammad, quoted in Hadith of Bukhari, Vol 1 Book 8 Hadith 427. And the Muslims just keep on lying as usual about their being a peaceful religion. Tell a big enough lie, long enough, and people start to believe it…well, stupid people will believe it.

Michael Martin, who is the Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs, opposing attempts by Islamic States to make defamation of religion a crime…at the United Nations level in 2009: “We believe that the concept of defamation of religion is not consistent with the promotion and protection of human rights. It can be used to justify arbitrary limitations on, or the denial of, freedom of expression. Indeed, Ireland considers that freedom of expression is a key and inherent element in the manifestation of freedom of thought and conscience and as such is complementary to freedom of religion or belief.”  Not much later the Blasphemy law was proposed in Ireland by one of Mr. Martin’s colleagues.  The Irish, Brits and Scots legislators have a long tradition of not listening to their common folk and passing BAAAAD laws.

This blasphemy law is for all intents and purposes aimed at protecting the Muslim religious adherents of Ireland from badmouthing from the largely Christian English components of the country. This is basically the same law that Muslim countries in the UN are trying to pass off on the whole world.  This is another sign of how evil the Muslim religion is.  From any other religion there would be a tremendous outcry if an attempt was made to pass off this evil plan on the world.

We are still at the beginning of Islamic attempts to openly conquer the Christians and Jews  and eventually any others who disagree with their religious dogma, and make-over the world in Muhammad’s vision. The first step was the Twin Towers  on 9-11 to electrify and wake up their people to the power they can wield by unconventional warfare. Now we are in the second phase…make it illegal to criticize them.  Kinda what Hitler did…passed laws making it illegal to criticize the party.

    Hi Joe, thanks for commenting.

    Are you thinking that blasphemy laws are OK???

  3. Justin says:

    All western civilization is based on Christianity so why should we take away the law what makes living in these countries awesome?

  4. thewordofme says:

    Justin are you from the United States?

    We have a constitutional law that gives us the right to free speech. That means that we can speak freely, about anything we want, without fear that the government will come and arrest us. This is considered a basic human right.

    That is what the government of Ireland has taken away from it’s citizens…they are no longer allowed to speak freely about anything they want.

    This is also a scene out of the novel 1984 by George Orwell. They had no rights of free speech either.

    How very sad that anyone applauds that.
