" The U.N.'s top human-rights body approved a proposal by Muslims nations Thursday urging passage of laws around the world to protect religion from criticism..."
wow, that would be intense.
one part of me hopes that doesn't pass. Because--Quote"It is individuals who have rights and not religions," Canadian diplomat Terry Cormier said.
--here in the US, ALL SORTS of problems were created by giving corporations legal personhood. Religious egregrores would be so much more powerful / dangerous if they were afforded rights.
But another part of me hopes this passes, for the lulz
because as soon as it's illegal to make fun of religion,
it's time to show people how ridiculous Discordia can actually be.
the kicker would be it being illegal to make fun of us
Article VI resolutions emanating from the United Nations General Assembly carry no coercive power to be passed. Its the political equivalent of staging a protest - though given some of the screaming I've heard about this you'd think the UN was like some sort of mecha-Hitler, instead of a talking shop for the world's minor powers.
