This one has been doing the rounds a bit, but I thought it was worth mentioning here. It seems there are disturbing moves afoot at the UN – that great bastion of freedom and democracy – for a binding resolution against “blasphemy”… wait, did I say “bastion of?” I meant something else.
It’s aim is basically to curtail speech that offends religion – Islam, in particular (yet again, it’s people demanding their right to not be offended… I find the UN offensive – can we ban it?)
We already have anti-vilification laws in this country. This anti-blasphemy resolution would be even worse. The video is 10 minutes long, but do watch it.
