    Here in the UK the medieval blasphemy laws were eventually scrapped in 2008, far too late in the day, imo.

    I think one should be permitted to say exactly what one likes about any god, especially as they are more than likely human creations.

    WHY? Why say anything at all about any topic that you believe may be false?

    I know there is within the UK the belief we have free speech, we don't! Most of what you're posted today breaks section 4a of the public order act

    When I accused you of blasphemy, I simply made an objective assessment of what you posted. Any reasonable person would see that what you posted was clearly intended to denigrate Christian beliefs.

    Concerning whether or not what you posted should be permitted, I stated nothing. Neither I or anyone else in that thread has called for you to face any repercussions. No one has questioned your 'right' to post your opinions, be they offensive or not.

    Because when that false narrative gets you tax breaks and other privileges it needs to be called out

    I make no apology for denigrating the unpleasant beliefs of extreme Christians, which can be very emotionally abusive. I have no problem whatsoever with moderate Christians who don't force their faith on others, even if I don't see it their way.

    "God is a poop gobbler."

    Such words slew deity and believer alike.

    To claim that Jesus was homosexual and that God copulated with Mary is not some brave defense of those you claim are wronged by Christian ethics. To chastise Christians for being unpleasant while spewing blasphemous diatribes denigrating Christ and the Virgin Mary should strike anyone as more than a tad ironic.

    And who is forcing their faith on you?

    It was forced on me as a child. My EVIL grandmother, beat religion into her kids and from the age of two she kept telling me about the tortures of hell for naughty little girls like me.:mad::mad::mad::mad: I literally danced on her grave when horrible woman did us all a favour and died in the 90s!

    We have free speech; but there is a 'hate/incitement' speech exemption.

    The ironies of this post are unbelievable. Are you that blind to your own contractions and hypocrisies?

    So you may have had a mean grandmother, that justifies your conduct how?

    Rubbish, your lack of belief in the evidence accepted by many is your problem

    No, your exceptionally low bar for evidence is the reason you believe.

    Because what's CRUCIAL is free speech. The need for free speech vastly outweighs any individual's desire to "not be offended".

    I don't get it either. Then again, atheism often dovetails with anti-theism instead of simple apathy, which prompts folks to speak out against theism. It's unfortunate, but it is what it is. Some folks just like $#@%ing on other people's sacred things.

    Sounds like empty rhetoric too me but tell me what evidence you'd find convincing
