Blasphemy Day 2012 takes to YouTube

http://www.examiner.com/article/blasphemy-day...

"On September 30th, 2005 cartoons featuring the Islamic prophet Mohammad were published in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten. As a reaction to those cartoons, riots broke out among Muslims who considered those cartoons to be “Blasphemous.” Now seven years later, a YouTube video has sparked similar riots.

The Center For Inquiry introduced Blasphemy Day in 2009 to support the rights of people to criticize and satirize all ideas and beliefs. Religious ideas and beliefs should not be above criticism or beyond satire.

This year Blasphemy Day falls on Sunday, September 30th and it couldn’t have come at a more appropriate time. Earlier this month, riots broke out in several Middle-Eastern countries over a horribly unwatchable 14-minute YouTube video called,“Innocence of Muslims.” The riots over this film are becoming more numerous and some Muslims have demanded that the filmmakers be executed.

An Egyptian atheist, Alber Saber, has been arrested and tortured in a jail cell because the film found on a Facebook group he created for Egyptian Atheists (That page no longer exists). A petition is still circulating to help to get him released.

Since the recent outrage over blasphemy has occurred on YouTube, this year I am calling for Blasphemy Day to focus attention on that medium. CFI, however, does not endorse any particular medium as the focus and so people are still encouraged to post blasphemous material on other social networking sites as well. For more information, check out the official Blasphemy Day Facebook page and Twitter."
