"Blasphemy Day International is a campaign seeking to establish September 30th as a day to promote free speech and to stand up in a show of solidarity for the freedom to challenge, criticize, and satirize religion without fear of murder, litigation, or reprisal. The event was created as a reaction against those who would seek to take away the right to satirize and criticize a particular set of beliefs that have been given a privileged status over other beliefs."Now, far be it from us to encourage gratuitous sacrilege and blind, ugly heresy ... ah, go on, give it your best shot by leaving a comment on this post.
And when you're done, read Newton Emerson's column from our current issue, in which he tells the true story behind Ireland's shiny new blasphemy law. After which, you may fancy leaving a second blasphemous comment.
