I don't know if it's true that Mohammed (Police Be Upon Him) banned alcohol because his wife couldn't get served in a pub, but it's true that blasphemy is just the religionist's word for satire.

Fortunately, there are people who speak-up for freedom of speech more elequently than I do...

Religious myths, superstitions and institutions should be open to criticism like any other. Religions are man-made and usually parent-given, not the word of god(s) sent to us by some ancient prophet.

Yes:-), but I was more interested in what the USA was doing to support the IHEU's efforts, given that many US states might fall foul of any UN declaration on the subject, technically speaking...

I haven't seen anything from the AHA recently.

Blasphemy carries a death sentence officially in some countries,(e.g Pakistan & the Maldives I believe).

Does that include atheism too?
Or is insulting individual atheists the 'true' blasphemy?

Well since atheism isn't an ism, but rather the lack of an ism, to insult it is to basically say nothing. To attempt blasphemy merely spotlights your inability to understand either atheism or blasphemy. Both are non-existent.

Next your silly attempts at insult, are largely wasted effort on your part, because they are not insulting to us at all, you don't hit us with them, they are going nowhere. Try coming up with some individualized insults, in which we could actually be envisioned as the targets for whom they were created.

Here I will give you an idea of what I mean by this. >> "You stupendously ignorant religitard oaf". See how that works? It is individualized, and it is clearly an accurate description of who you are, and is encases my lowest regards for you, all at the same time. Give it a shot, see how far your bit of intelligence can be stretched. S.I.R.O.
