Blasphemy law: I can stand it no longer
I have started a petition to repeal Pakistan's Blasphemy law. The text is:
What one believes is not a matter of choice. It is a matter of struggle with one's personal conscience and the force of facts entering in through windows onto reality. Society cannot progress and the human being cannot thrive unless it is possible to discuss ideas and one's perceptions freely. Pakistan's blasphemy law is thus an insult to the founder of Pakistan, who wanted a secular Pakistan. It is an insult to God (if such a being exists). It is an insult to every human being that ever looked up at the stars and wondered what they were.
