"They're not taking away the rights of Atheists, they're just making it illegal to criticize religion. And how much help has criticizing religion EVER done for the world? ...none. It's only created hostility between Atheists and Theists."

If no one had criticized religion, we would still believe that the Earth was flat, we would never have come up with the idea of Science, we would believe there were only 3 continents, and we would still pay taxes to the Roman church. In fact, we would never see progress beyond that of the early medieval period.

yeah... THIS would be followed in the US...

since when has the UN followed up on anything it's passed? breaking its regulations pretty much gets you a "don't do that" and no action whatsoever.

although the US would probably do its own thing even if they enforced it.

That was one hell of a spin though. Making it only about Islam.

And what about the 1 billion Atheists? We don't get protection because we don't believe in fairies?

Wow, talk about a right-wing spin on that!

"against defamation of religions" means ALL RELIGIONS, not just Islam! This means that the Christians would get the protection, the Pagans, the Jews, the Muslims, EVERYONE WHO FOLLOWS A RELIGION WOULD bE PROTECTED AGAINST DEFAMATION.

Stupid media...

I read somewhere that people are given life, liberty, and the pursuit of happyness /in that order/. So, yelling fire in a theatre is possibly endangering life, which is more important than liberty. I think that's the whole idea of the Patriot Act. The same thing applies to discrimination. Discriminating can endanger a life, so the liberty that allows one to discriminate can be voided.

Personally, however, I think that the rant above can only apply in certain situations. The UN shouldn't be treating the world like a child and slapping our hand when we reach for the cookies. The UN should be slapping our hand when we have a gun and threaten to kill someone if they don't get a cookie.

and insinuating that ‘non-democratic’ Islamic countries are bushing for this resolution to be passed. Are the people working for CNN really this stupid? It’s almost hard to believe.

Secondly, this is a GA resolution, which is not binding in any way. This resolution doesn’t force a country to do anything at all, so get over it. If it was a Security Council resolution it would be binding, but there is something called the veto, and I doubt any veto power nation would vote in favour of this.

Lastly, as to the comments here; Stop your UN conspiracy theories and figure out how it actually works before commenting.

/end rant.

Alright, I created an account just to be able to say this;

CNN and people are idiots. I've only seen a handful of comments on here which are at least somewhat accurate.

First of all as to the CNN: The CNN states that the United Nations adopts an anti-blasphemy resolution. This is inaccurate, there is currently a resolution proposed IN the UN to do such a thing, this is NOT the UN trying to force countries to change their national laws for a number of reasons.

First of all, the resolution has been proposed by a number of member states, this is therefore an initiative from some countries in/to the United Nations, not by the United Nations itself. Claiming that the United Nations is trying to do this or that is ridiculous, seeing as it is an organisation representing the interests of numerous members. There is no 'secret hidden UN agenda'. The CNN seems to be indecisive, alternating between stating that the UN is trying to force the United States to adopt anti blasphemy laws

drat religion. I am so sick of it ruining everyone's life. It made my dad insane and forced me out of my home. Now we aren't allowed to criticize actions incited by imaginary gods speaking to everyone except those who are sane and rationale. drat. I'm moving to an island with my wench.

patchouly- im not forgetting the "good" the U.N. has done...
i just dont care.
lemme put it in context, i think people will agree
ok, lets say you have a friend, and this friend , over the course of many years, do quite a few nice things to and for you...
until one day, he decides to steal from you, lets say a t.v. set.

now, because he's done nice things for you, you should just let that slide, right?

no, you would hold him accountable, and probably wont be his friend any longer, huh?

well, with this law, the U.N. seeks to steal MY freedom of speech.

i think the friendship is off.
