Blasphemy laws and hate speech laws

Once we had belief, and there was God. Now there's some arsehole from HR with a spreadsheet.

That's all well and good, but you can't enforce blasphemy laws if 90% of the population doesn't believe in your stupid god. You need "hate speech" laws to do that. ;)

No it's not.

One is the majority dictating to the minority and the other is the minority dictating to the majority.

Gosh. What are you on about?!

 

There's a massive difference.

 

One is the church seeking to outlaw words and arguments it finds inconvenient and threatening to its position of hegemony within the existing status quo, the other is our political elite seeking to outlaw words and arguments it finds inconvenient and threatening to its position of hegemony within the existing status quo.

Clearly these are very different things!
