He who cannot be named..
Excellent article by Atheist Ireland on blasphemy and why the whole concept of blasphemy runs counter to well established and internationally recognised human rights. The particular thrust of the piece is around atheists being persecuted by religious authorities but the largest numbers of people suffering because of ideas and laws on blasphemy are usually religious, they just happen to believe the wrong one for the place they happen to be! Such is the idiocy of the idea, obviously the truth of a religion is perfectly correlated with imaginary lines drawn on a map!
As a really clever, famous bloke once said,
"Every great idea starts out as a blasphemy"..
