    Last time I checked, our government doesn't uphold religious law and blasphemy is not illegal. Otherwise a lot of people who use the Lord's name in vain are looking at some jail time.

    Like Justin Bieber concerts?

    I kid, but seriously you do realize "grievously immoral" is a rather subjective term. Some Muslims would consider a woman showing her face to be "grievously immoral". For some uttering racial slurs is "grievously immoral". Should those both be illegal as well or are we only supposed to enforce your idea of what is "grievously immoral"?

    The way I look at it, a government that has the power to enforce my moral code others has the power to enforce another moral code on me, and I know my moral code (which probably is fairly similar to yours) isn't what the majority hold to.

    Of course not. That would be logical, which we are not.

    Your tax dollars aren't.

    I think its mindless what he did but under the first amendment, it shouldn't be punished
    The auto de fe is no longer part of canon law.

    No one wants to establish the Spanish inquisition in America. That would be absurd.

    The issue of ownership also comes into play here. Had that been the boy's statue or at least his family's, then the law could not apply. I can go out and purchase my own Koran and burn it and no law in the US can touch me in and of itself. Incidentals, such as burning it on someone else's property or the act resulting in burn damage to property other than mine could be applied but those would apply regardless of what the initial object burned was.

    Now I will admit that "venerated" can be a subjective term, which is why I do not like the law in and of itself.
    Desecration laws protecting the USA's flag have been ruled unconstitutional. The Supremes correctly recognized in that decision that one's freedom of expression can't be abridged just because it offends many people. (except public nudity and lewdness and indecency on broadcast TV and radio) The desecration law that he kid is charged with is not based on ownership of the symbol, only on whether someone is offended. They charged the kid with desecration because they couldn't get away with another charge such as trespassing or vandalism.

    do you want an American inquisition?

    and how is it logical to punish blasphemy?

    Didn't you just say in the OP "I find it disgusting that this is a misdemeanor. It ought to be punished by imprisonment" over someone taking a lewd photo with a religious statue? Unless you were being sarcastic in the OP you wanted someone in prison for offending your religious views.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    I think he is saying that we are not logical because we don't punish blasphemy

    No, the Roman Inquisition (since renamed) is sufficient.

    If one really believes that Christianity is the true religion established for the salvation of the world, then one logically should desire the prohibition of public denigrations of it.
