Blasphemy! Blasphe-you! Blasphe-everybody!

God from Monty Python Holy Grail

Well, we were just talking about Ricky Gervais. But he, Stewart Lee, Philip Pullman (author of The Golden Compass), Prof. Richard Dawkins, Sir Jonathan Miller and many others are backing a campaign to get rid of the blasphemy laws in Britain. This after some fundamentalist Christians tried to smack Lee’s production of Jerry Springer: The Opera with blasphemy charges.

They bring up some great points, like the concern over a teacher in Sudan being charged with blasphemy for the name of a teddy bear and the fact that it’s only Christianity that gets to bring such cases. You can check out the whole article over at Chortle.

I wish them luck. I live in the southeastern United States, and over here Jesus still doesn’t want you to buy alcohol on Sundays.

Anyway, I think we need a very worthwhile video to illustrate the point. Oh, look, here comes one now.
