Pardon me for trotting out a bumper sticker slogan, but:

"Blasphemy is a victimless crime."

I think Julian_Rain hits the nail on the head when he says that the media are to blame. My wife is American so I go to the states fairly frequently. It's not unusual to be asked a question like, "How do you feel about the fact that Britain has adopted sharia law?" That's so far divorced from reality to be hilarious. But, nevertheless, people must be getting these ludicrous ideas from somewhere!
