from barnabasaid:

"A global blasphemy law must be firmly resisted for a number of reasons. Firstly, it directly contradicts existing human rights law. Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states:

"Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression. This right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference ...

"Secondly, a law against the defamation of religion would in reality protect Islam more than other religions ... While Christians try to follow Christ’s command to 'turn the other cheek' in response to insults and attacks, Muslims are called instead to restore their honour when it has been taken from them, and doing this is more important to them than life itself ...

"Thirdly, a global blasphemy law would put Christians and other religious minorities in Muslim-majority contexts in a position of increased marginalisation and danger. One has only to look at the effect of 'blasphemy laws' in specific countries such as Pakistan, where Christians and other non-Muslims are extremely vulnerable to false accusations ...

"Finally, the calls from Muslims for protection and respect for Islam are outrageously hypocritical given the treatment of Christians and other religious minorities in most Muslim-majority contexts ..."

Muslims killed 80 million Hindus between 1000 (conquest of Afghanistan) and 1525 (end of Delhi Sultanate).

Finally, there is room for respect of the Islamic religion. The human races have come to their senses. But not without our hard work and sacrifices. Blasphemers can now go home.

Let's keep it in perpective, Mawar. Islam is after all the world's truest religion, the only true religion. Islam has been here 1400 years, nay, more than that, since Islam began with Adam (peace be upon him). Islamic prophets include Jesus, Moses, David, Solomon, Noah, and the rest of the 25 names mentioned in Quran (peace be upon them all).

Not that others weren't right, but that they have gone corrupt. They took prophets for gods - isn't that blasphemy?

Others not only didn't recognize the prophets, but also killed them - that is more than a blasphemy. That is killing the prophets - Dick, do you know the term for it in English?

Islam is a hodge podge of material fabricated by a madman or plagiarized off other religions then corrupted and made amoral and violent. Islam is pure evil.

Fluoride-pushing doctors and dentists who try to contaminate your water supply with fluoride are promoting their deadly agenda with a clever lie… a lie you will see obediently repeated in every fluoride push. Here’s how it sounds:

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral in the water. Our city’s water is unfortunate enough to have a low level, so we are simply adjusting the fluoride in the water to its optimum levels to improve public health.

This lie is repeated almost verbatim, across every city that seeks to poison its citizens with fluoride. Why is it a lie? Here are the five false deceptions found embedded in the statement:

Deception #1) The fluoride ADDED to the water is not “naturally occurring fluoride.” It’s a chemical byproduct often purchased from chemical plants in China (see below).

Deception #2) The false idea that ingesting fluoride is somehow good for your teeth. At best, fluoride is a topical treatment which should be swished around your mouth and then spat out. And that’s only if it’s truly natural (mineral) fluoride, not the fluosilicic acid toxins being pushed as fluoride.

Deception #3) What cities call “fluoride” is actually a toxic cocktail of over 100 deadly industrial chemicals and heavy metals, many of which are purchased in bulk from China, where industrial processing plants are trying to get rid of their excess toxic waste by labeling it “sodium fluoride.”

Deception #4) There is no such thing as a “low” level of fluoride or an “optimum” level of fluoride in drinking water. Pure drinking water should contain NO fluoride whatsoever.

Deception #5) Fluoride is “safe” for human consumption. Oh really? Then why is sodium fluoride labeled by its industrial manufacturers with stern safety warnings about causing severe harm to humans?

What's more deadly: Flouridated water, or a global blasphemy law that contradicts Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights?
