Well I’ll be goddamned…
Shouldn’t that be “flouting the blasphemy laws”?
Blasphemy art can be fun for the whole family.
Nobody is to stone anybody until I blow this whistle — even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say, “Jehovah”…
On a more serious note, the more often and more openly these laws can be flaunted, the sooner people will wake up to just how restrictive and ridiculous they are. Unfortunately, we’re talking about politicians here, so it might be a while.
Flouting the laws by flaunting the art.
“Mooooooom! The Irish are flaunting their blasphemy laws again! Can I pleeeeeeez have some blasphemy laws too?”
“Oh, and I suppose if the Irish were jumping off a cliff you’d want to follow them, wouldn’t you?”

I’ll just link to my favorite one again.
Mainly because of the knot it put in Jesse Helms shorts.
Moggie is right, it’s “flouting”.
Freedom of religion is not greater than freedom of speech. Hardcore believers don’t believe in our rights, many of them don’t believe in their own, myopically following old books written as a nationalistic code for tribal leaders to inspire acts of genocide and conquest over their region of the world.

Ugh… the videographer in that clip was pissing me off… NO ONE was in focus!
The “God Dates Fags” was probably my favorite piece. Suck it, Phelps.
Oh no! PZ is flaunting his flouting of the distinction between “flout” and “flaunt”! Between you and I, I think this is horrible.
My faith in him is crushed. [sob]
Well, PZ is a biologilist not an languagologist so we’ll forgive the ‘flaunt’. That said this exhibition is really well worth the visit if for nothing else than the cruci-cookies we got on entry. The art is pretty clever too, plenty to keep us all feeling superior. WE scored ourselves a referendum on the silly blasphemy laws so maybe soon this shit won’t even be an issue, we can all just, y’know, think…
