← You want to ban hate speech? Isn’t that what religion is?

I'm not sure it makes much sense to associate ancient religious writings with contemporary legislations on hate speech which are a valid social response to modern issues in multi racial societies. The law isn't there to prevent intelligent debate and critique it's there to prevent abuse. Associating what goes on in countries like Iran with UK censorship regulation is just silly.
