Trigger warning:

This site may, in fact always will contain images and information likely to cause consternation, conniptions, distress, along with moderate to severe bedwetting among statists, wimps, wusses, politicians, lefties, green fascists, and creatures of the state who can't bear the thought of anything that disagrees with their jaded view of the world.

UN's Anti-Blasphemy Resolution.

Attack on Freedom of speech,
 and on separation of church and state.

H/T; Little Green Footballs, via Fleeced over at "Thoughts on Freedom."

About ten minutes but well worth the time. The UN is and has always been at the forefront of attacks on liberty. The United States has at least some constitutional protection against this sort of thing with its first amendment, and while I have little doubt that their government will try it on, as it would empower them, there is room to fight it. I have little doubt that Rudd will also try but over here.

The United Nations Anti-Blasphemy Resolution aims to curtail speech that offends religion, specifically Islam. Critics, religious groups and free speech advocates say the resolution is spreading Sharia law to the Western world.

Essentially as Islam is obsessive about such things as blasphemy, and will as such be the prime beneficiary of such laws, all churches are somewhat twitchy about criticism and the raising of blasphemy to criminal status, creates the situation where it is a criminal act to criticize them. This effectively negates the concept of separation of church and state, one of the pillars of a free society.
