Egypt’s Prime Minister wants the US government to do all it can to “stop people insulting Islam.”
Time out while I sigh a huge sigh.
No. Shut up. Fuck off.
First of all, there’s no such thing as “insulting” a religion to begin with. “Insult” is a human term. You can’t “insult” socialism or libertarianism or skydiving or birdwatching or apricots or cats.
What you mean is “disparage” or similer. We’re allowed to do that. Everyone should be allowed to do that.
If you tried to persuade the US government to do all it can to stop people disparaging Islam, you would still be doing a silly and bad thing. There’s a lot about Islam that cries out for disparaging, and the US government is very limited in its ability to tell us what to say. It’s a pity yours is not equally limited.
Here’s an idea for you: do all you can to stop mobs getting into stupid rages about perceived “insults” to a guy who’s been dead for 14 centuries.
