← The Blasphemy Challenge

Yeah, I'm another one who thinks this is sort of silly. If you're an atheist, it's no big deal to do this. And if you're a Christian, I guess you wouldn't do it and you'd think the atheists who do are going to hell. Well, then we join all the other damned sinners in their blinkered eyes. We knew that already.

The main reason to blaspheme is to demonstrate opposition to the idea that blasphemy is wrong, or should be criminalised. That's a good reason to do it because there's a clear point. And when I blaspheme I do it just a bit more colourfully than "I deny the holy spirit".
