International Blasphemy Day : 30th September


September 30th will be the International Blasphemy Day, a day set aside to commemorate the publishing of religious blasphemous content.

The purpose of this event is to set a particular day as a day to support free speech, support the right to criticize and satirize religion, and to oppose any resolutions or laws, binding or otherwise, that discourage or inhibit free speech of any kind. The focus on ‘blasphemy’ is simply because it is such a salient issue, and one for which a lot of consciousness-raising is necessary.

The goal is not to promote hate or violence. While many perceive blasphemy as insulting and offensive, it isn’t about getting enjoyment out of ridiculing and insulting others. Criticism and dissent towards opposing views is the only way in which any nation with any modicum of freedom can exist.Post and send any images, quotes and stories that are blasphemous to our facebook page (see right) on or before that day so that we publish them on 30th.

Let us promote free speech.

        Liz and j.w, blasphemy is a word that is used by those who fear progress. The pastors came with it. Those bible passages you quote are all meant to stop free inquiry. There is nothing beautiful in them

        j.w is it possible for you to not use caps? get another keyboard and stop shouting at us, just talk to us.
