Celebrate International Blasphemy Rights Day: It’s a Victimless Crime!

Friday, September 30 is International Blasphemy Rights Day. It is a day to celebrate the right to speaking freely about ideas and things such as religions, gods, sacred books, and profanity. Unfortunately, not everyone has the right to say what they want about these things—some countries will punish you with fines, imprisonment, and death if you are found guilty of blasphemy. Even in societies such as the United States where religious freedom is celebrated, the criticism and questioning of others’ religious beliefs is frowned upon and often met with derision and hostility.

The right to blaspheme is where the rights of free speech and religious freedom intersect. In order to have a truly democratic and open society, all citizens must be able to speak openly and honestly about all things—even another’s religion, lack of religion, beliefs, gods, and sacred books—and be able to take the name of supernatural entities in vain: Holy Zeus!

The forum is a brighter place thakns to your posts. Thanks!
It seems that things that really matter like free speech, and end to killings and poverty are second on the agenda of governments. I am trying desparetely to make a difference by signing petitions and in deed have one of my own http://www.change.org/petitions/american-congress-stop-the-death-penalty... I live in the UK and have written to my MP detailing my concerns.
[citation needed] on that list. Also, as far as I know (I am brazilian) there is not such a prohibition in my country. In fact, our Federal Constitution says in Title II, "From the fundamental rights and warranties", Chapter one, "Of the individual and coletive rights", Article Fifth, that: "IV - It's free the manifestation of thought, being vedat the anonymousness;" "V - It's assegurated the right to response, proportional to the agravation, aside the indenization by material, to the image, or moral damage;" and also "VI - It's inviolable the liberty of conscience and faith, being assegurated the free exercising of the religious cult and being warranted, in the form of law, the protection to the cult places and their liturgies;" In addiction, I think that other countries of that list do not forbide blasphemy, and that you did not done any serious research.
