There is currently an effort beginning to make it a worldwide crime if someone speaks anything considered to be blasphemy against Islam ( and other religions possibly ).
I am wondering how this will affect atheists who say there is no god.
They will not be able to say that because it is offensive to the 3 major religions worldwide.

When atheists say " there is no god ", some will be offended because that is denying Christ which is blasphemy.
Muslims, Jews and Christians all believe there is a god.

See, this is why the USA is the greatest nation , we were founded on the principles of freedom to avoid ever agian of being under religious law.If you have a problem with that, there are plenty of other places to live with people who think they can decide what a man or woman thinks or says.

Do you normally answer a question with a question to avoid the topic?

I am not concerned at all about you...just the BS you are trying to push

If anything this demonstrates exactly why religion is such a danger to a free intellectual society.

Who said anything about Legeslation?

There are efforts going on in Dearborn to suppress free speech if it is offensive to muslims.

Stop being foolish and accept facts.
