And here's the BBC contributing an "engaging discussion" to the debate: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/3120730/bbc-sparks-outrage-as-it-asks-twitter-followers-what-is-the-right-punishment-for-blasphemy/


These people never explain why blasphemy should be illegal anywhere. No doubt they find it upsetting, but all sorts of people find all sorts of things upsetting. I imagine Morris dancers find it upsetting when people say "try everything once except incest and Morris dancing", but I doubt whether any Morris dancer thinks the voicing of such sentiments should be banned. Islam should have no more protection than Morris dancing.
