AP Exclusive: Muslim countries seek blasphemy ban
AP on Yahoo ^ | 11/19/09 | Frank Jordans - ap

Posted on 11/19/2009 12:26:43 PM PST by NormsRevenge

GENEVA – Islamic nations are mounting a campaign for an international treaty to protect religious symbols and beliefs from mockery — essentially, a ban on blasphemy.

.. Algeria and Pakistan have taken the lead in lobbying to bring the matter to a vote in the U.N. General Assembly.

Such a ban would face great resistance in Western nations ..

The countries that form the 56-member Organization of the Islamic Conference are currently lobbying a Geneva-based U.N. committee to accept its plan, ..

If that occurs, Muslim countries and their allies in the developing world would stand a decent chance of mustering the simple majority needed in the General Assembly to adopt such a treaty.

Interesting. And liberals will give this concept actual “respect.”

If a Christian country pushed the same thing, the world would have a fit.

I’m going to assume here that the muslims will determine the definition of “blasphemy”. Fat chance anyone in the western world will listen to them. The UN can suck hind tit for all I’m concerned.

I would like to see this get laughed out of the UN in Christian nations did try this. But Christian nations are, by and large, free nations and have no need for such BS.

Besides, do you think Muslim nations would respect a ban on the mockery of Christianity?

And...will there be sactions against countries that don’t prosecute artists that publish pictures of Mohaamed wearing a bomb on his head?

And Islam is the world’s most mockable religion, by far.

You don’t think this would be one of those deals where they say, “Nobody thinks this law was passed to protect Christians”, do you?

Actaully, many Western countries are already prohibiting [via self-censorship] blasphemy — against Islam. Christianity and Judaism are still fair game.

There will be no equivalents of a crucifix soaking in urine, the Virgin Mary covered in dung directed toward Islam being displayed in Western art galleries anytime soon, I promise you.

The way this could be nipped in the bud is to add language to the effect that Islam should have special protections, because it is a weak religion, its followers are prone to desert it if they hear things that are critical of it, and that Muslim women will no longer respect Muslim men.

Do you know if this covers only Islam or blasphemies against all religions? Just curious. It would be comical to see the Libs having to defend their favortie hobby of blaspheming Christianity and Judaism while at the same time supporting Islam’s attempt to ban any and all criticism of their beliefs.

It’s all fear. Western countries are afraid of muslim backlash. They don’t self-censor against Jews and Christians because Jews and Christians tend not to blow up rat-poison soaked nail bombs in shopping malls when offended.

If shielding Islam from criticism (which is what this really is) becomes a part of political correctness, and is considered necessary to ensure diversity, then don't bet it won't enforced in the West, including the USA.

The same lunacy that has many Americans, including Obama and his flunkies, trying to protect Islam from any association with the Fort Hood atrocity might also try to require the US to go along with this blasphemy nonsense.

No. They are in and of themselves blasphemous and would be banned. I also think Islam is regarded as the only religion by Islam. Every other belief system is blasphemous. Pretty neat trick.

I have observed and endured continued blasphemy directed against Christian and Jew my entire life. It used to bother me, but I realized one day, if God did not knock the very life out of who ever was doing it, then I am not going to give it a second thought. It is just another anal pore trying to cause a stir. If a law is passed to protect only the pedophile and pig molesting moslems, then I will be the first to circulate pictures of mo-ham-head the child molester himself sexually abusing goats, pigs, and donkeys. To me they are nothing more than a group of perverts that hide behind a lie of a religion. May allah rain torrents of his holy urine and feces upon them.
