Defamation of Religion: You Have to be Kidding

The link is an A.P. story from yesterday about the UN calling for a ban on the defamation of religion. Right.

I like the UN. I like the idea of the UN better than I like this, though. This idea, calling for a global ban on dissing religion, is reactionary and stupid. It’s tailor-made to please fundamentalists of all varieties. That it came from the Muslim block in the UN and not the fundamentalist Christian right-wing here in the United States is an example of how similar fundamentalist minds work, regardless of ideology.

I’m against such a ban, of course. Anything that squashes free speech is appalling. First they want to go after free speech and then they take after the ideas. Swine.
