Apparently the creator of all has a fragile ego and his followers are out to protect their delicate deity:
"Saudi King Abdullah is quietly enlisting the [UN] leaders' support for a global law to punish blasphemy - a campaign championed by the 56-member Organization of Islamic Conference that puts the rights of religions ahead of individual liberties. If the campaign succeeds, states that presume to speak in the name of religion will be able to crush religious freedom not only in their own country, but abroad."
Discussions touched upon a number of hot issues including ... Prophet Muhammad lampooning cartoons ...The simple fact that the UN is even considering such a proposal with the slightest bit of sincerity is horrific. A free world demands free speech. If we don't follow your god/prophet/spirit guide/magic 8-ball than we should not be bound by it's rules. The rule of law is the only rule governments should rule by. Let your Almighty cast it's judgement upon us. Until then, we have spent thousands of years fighting for the freedom to speak, think and live under our own diverse beliefs. If you want to be free to practice your beliefs you should allow us the same dignity.
Lest we blame this all on the barbarian mindset of Theocratic Islam, we in the "enlightened" West should look in the mirror. A few highlights:
• Offensive Jesus remark cut from Emmy show
• Danish paper rejected Jesus cartoons
• Everyone's favorite - the supposed War on Christmas! To that I say, "Merry Horusmas!"
