    Goes both ways there son. Christianity isn't above criticism either, blasphemy included. I don't subscribe to your God and in THIS country, we don't have a state run religion. If you want blasphemy to be illegal, there are a ton of third world countries that would agree with you. Look to THEM to find a home because America isn't for you.

    Ok. Well in the spirit of invalid analogies.

    Some people want murder to be legal, this is ridiculous. Some people want murder to be illegal. Since these are both opinions about murder, they're both ridiculous.

    Every country should abide by divine law.

    Well you should find another country that does, because THIS country does not. Don't let the door hit your arse on the way out of the country. Otherwise, go pound sand and deal with it. I have the freedom of speech to insult your God in EVERY way if I choose. Deal with it son!

    Every country in the history of the world until a few hundred years ago had an official religion. Things will return to that state.

    It may not be in my lifetime, but it's only a matter of time.

    It's the way things have always been. This exception will not be permanent.

    Are you kidding?

    Religion is dying out. In the West especially, religion has far less influence and devoted 'members to the various 'God clubs'.

    People are finally starting to wake up to how silly it is to base their beliefs on nothing more then a 'leap of faith' - since NONE of the major religions can offer any hard, scientific proof of almost any major claims these fictional books make.

    Just go to a church - almost any one - and I guarantee you the average age of most of the congregation's will be far higher now then they was 50 years ago.

    BBC News - Religion may become extinct in nine nations, study says

    And this is why I'm thankful religious extremists of any sort typically can't get substantial power in this country.

    Blasphemy, an entirely religious concept, should not be codified into law. Indeed, doing such is inherently against one of the foundational principles this country's government is based on, which is that the government should not restrict individuals speech. Bringing up Sharia is ENTIRELY justified, as suggesting that people should be IMPRISONED for "Public blashpheming" is a similar sort of over the top religious based legal structure.
