How long do I have to speak freely?

Boy oh boy, I just can’t wait til it’s illegal to blaspheme here in Canada! Between the UN attempting to pass a measure pushed by Islamic countries to “combat blasphemy”, Ireland including blasphemy in a defamation law, and a seemingly dead Canadian law just waiting to be resurrected (perhaps three days from now?), it’s only a matter of time before some of the less rationally inclined reactivate that law and they come for me. I’ll be in stocks before you know it!

I wonder. What if I proclaimed my love for science as a religion, and any attempt to stifle scientific progress on the basis of other peoples’ false religions to be blasphemy? Would I then be protected?

I also wonder what’s gotten into me today. Suddenly I’m a blogging machine!
