Blasphemy Day International is a campaign seeking to establish September 30th as a day to promote free speech and stand up in a show of solidarity for the freedom to challenge, criticize, and satirize religion without fear of murder, litigation, and reprisal. Blasphemy Day takes place September 30th to commemorate the publishing of the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons. The purpose of Blasphemy Day is not to promote hate or violence; it is 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. While many perceive blasphemy as insulting and offensive, this event is not about getting enjoyment out of ridiculing and insulting others; rather, it was created as a reaction against those who would seek to take away the right to satirize and criticize a particular set of beliefs given a privileged status over other beliefs.
Fair enough. It is the result of a pluralist society. The trouble is, Christians are now being persecuted for simply stating what they believe. I have no problem with people doing their worst - God, my God, is a lot bigger than that, and so am I, but in a pluralist society, I have a right to say what I want to.
I don't argue with those who are anti-Christian, because there is no point. They don't understand anyway - how could they, for they are lost? What I do not propose, is to call for their death, since it seems a bit rude. Let's leave that to those whose names we cannot even mention any more, for fear of arrest on trumped up charges.
