Blasphemous or Not? A Poll

1 Comment

So on Facebook someone posted this. I was looking at the comments and I noticed someone else saying that this was blasphemous…  I stopped and almost denied myself a chuckle.   Then I looked up Blasphemous : the act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence for a religious deity or the irreverence towards religious or holy persons or things…..

Is it wrong?

So it’s touchy

OK if Maury could test the blood it wouldn’t be Joseph we know that!!. Maury  is just telling the truth

To me that is  funny!

This is funny man!!!

So God forgive me…

One thought on “Blasphemous or Not? A Poll

  1. Blasphemy is possible, but it should not be thought of as poor behavior. Reverence for your faith is not required of me by my faith, nor of you by your faith toward mine. Taking offence at blasphemy is petty and certainly not indicative of truth in your faith or confidence that you have the truth. It is also an emotionally charged reaction to what causes you no physical harm. It is an offence against an idea. An idea that requires protection is probably a bad idea. Agreed that the idea of fair action and equality deserve protection goes against what I said, but these are ethically right ideas whose only bias is against those that would harm others without that protection. Religious ideals do not need protection. Protection under the law institutes a statement of truth about what is protected by the governing body which enacts the laws of protection. For a government to protect any religious ideals or even all religious ideals blurs the line of separation between church and state. Which religions are due such protection? Should the Jedi religion be afforded such protection? How about Jim Jones’ religion? How about Wicca, or the Church of Satan? Should the law protect these religions from blasphemous harm? Believers are fond of telling atheists that they have faith too, so should atheism be likewise protected from blasphemy? Where does such madness stop? Which religion is to decide what other religions are due such protection?

    Equality is a useful ideal while your particular religion is not. Despite what you believe, your religion is not required for an ethical society while equality is. That is the difference as I see it in what ideals need or deserve protection. Religions are not due protection from blasphemy, rather they are deserving of blasphemy. Without the ability to freely and legally blaspheme there is no equality, there is no freedom, there is only obedience and punishment.
