Actually, Christianity and Judaism are defended from blasphemy-related crime there as well but the fact that most of the population is Muslim does gather more aggression. Doubt that the UN will bring much relief.
Well its like I say,.
Religion is just used as an excuse for people to be really crappy to people.
As an none arsehole about it atheist I can say that I am better than these people
^But you are not an arsehole about your beliefs are you? You are not the type to go about preaching about how your god should be followed by all.
I stand corrected. Apparently the UN has been busy with arresting people. It was a completely different story.
"Religious leaders and conservative Islamist politicians in Egypt have called on the United Nations to find a way to criminalize contempt for religion. But liberal activists here say the blasphemy laws are so vague, and applied almost exclusively when people allegedly defame Islam, that they are nothing more than a political tool."
Apparently Egypt is the cause for all of this.
This is what I read. Some other dude doesn't seem happy with Israel. Time to go shove my foot in my mouth.
