Freedom of speech is a core value. No ammount of offence can ever merit censor.

Silly title, Richard was always a big softie. It was his opposition that created his false "strident" image.

Richard, thank you for bringing this up with Yasmin. Her article is a classic example of a muslim in denial about the true nature of faith based suicide murder. It seems that the current government definition of an islamic moderate is a muslim who does not actively engage in acts of violence, or recommend them too often. If anyone disagrees I would be more than happy to have my opinion corrected on that one.

The problem here is that if she drinks wine and actively opposes the wearing of the burka and the imposition of the sharia then in what sense can she claim to be a muslim? She is blinded by her moderation into imagining that no thinking person can actually believe what the koran tells muslims to believe, thus her confusion when educated people commit acts of suicide murder. She and her fellows at Muslims for Secular Democracy are no doubt working to build a better world but they are very much on the losing side of the theological argument, and the extremists know this. She refuses to say it bluntly but if you connect the dots throught this article you see a tacit admission, im sure unconsciously, that the more "muslim" a person becomes (in the sense that they subscribe to the worldview mandated by the koran and the hadiths) the greater a threat they are to national security. No one in power is willing to acnowledge this as the implications are too dire to face.

The UK did indeed recently ditch its blasphemy law, on the grounds that it only protected Christianity from insult and therefore had no right to exist in modern multifaith Britain. The current government however has tried three times to pass the "Incitement to religious hatred act" to outlaw any opinions expressed in speech or writing that could be classed as "offensive" to the faithful.
