Jesus for President — 3 Comments

  1. “…it looks like blasphemy is to be erased from our constitution…” You reckon? Don’t forget your ‘constitution’ is subordinate to the diktats of the EU, so maybe you’d better temper that ‘having a pop’. See the following:

    Defaming the Prophet Muhammed “goes beyond the permissible limits of an objective debate” and “could stir up prejudice and put at risk religious peace” and thus exceeds the permissible limits of freedom of expression, ruled the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) on Thursday, upholding a lower court decision.

    Mind you, if you’re having a pop at anything which isn’t the Religion of Peace, that’s OK and is at least permitted, if not positively encouraged.

  2. Wot Ted Treen said.

    “The woman, named as E.S. in the European court’s judgement, had suggested the Prophet Mohammed was a paedophile due to his relationship with his wife Aisha, who was married to the religious leader aged six and consummated her marriage to him aged nine, according to most — although not all — Islamic religious writings.

    The European court agreed with judgement of the Austrian courts that Muslims would find the woman’s statements “wrong and offensive, even if Muhammad had married a six-year-old and had intercourse with her when she had been nine”, and ruled that they “carefully balanced her right to freedom of expression with the rights of others to have their religious feelings protected, and to have religious peace preserved in Austrian society.” (Breitbart)
