Yes. I'm a Christian, but I support the human right to criticize religion. I put this in the NSFW section because this video has adult content, and I want to be respectful.

It definitely should be legal to criticise religion. What should not be legal is discrimination on the basis that you follow a certain religion and don't like people who follow a different one. That isn't criticism you see: it's bigotry. It's basically the same thing as living in a multicultural prison and blaming blacks for the poor conditions.

Side: No.

You should be able th say ANYTHING you want short of directly threatening violence! If I wanna say “The Pope is a FAG”! I have the freedom. I should not be able to openly say “beat the Pope s ass” (even though he deserves a good ass whoopn)

To challenge or criticize the scriptures upon which a religion is based is, as it should be a legal pursuit.

Unlike other, more violent religions the Christian faith is sufficiently robust to withstand the derisive scorning from non believers and its devout followers are adequately steadfast in their religious conviction to passively tolerate ''the slings and arrows'' of their tormentors.

For instance, having made certain that your life insurance policy is valid and up to date, try going into a Muslim community, say in deepest Birmingham, England, and openly criticize the myths upon which the Islamic religion is founded and discover the true meaning of intolerance and savage violence.

Hallelujah brother, hallelujah.

No of course it souldn't, i mean you're allowed to don't be part of a religion because you don't believe it or else but have to respect it, it's very important to not offense the people who are in a religion. We have to live together no matter our religion, our origins, our skin color.....

It is a free speech issue. I'm a Christian (not a good one), and people criticize my Christian faith all the time. You don't have to like speech to support free speech.

Side: Yes.
