French President Emmanuel Macron has added his voice to the thousands who have spoken out in defence of a schoolgirl forced into hiding after she criticised Islam. According to the Guardian Macron, in defending the girl identified only as “Mila”, insisted that blasphemy: Is no crime. The law is clear: we have the right to blaspheme, to criticise, to caricature religions …what is outlawed is to incite hatred and attack dignity.

Freedom of speech is sacred. She is at the heart of humanism. But this does not mean attacking and abusing people or religions without justification.

Koodos to Macron. Questioning religion or even making fun of it should not be punishable under any law, especially in secular states.
I can understand that under dictatorial or religious rules that is out of the question, but it is unacceptable that religious leaders expect people to be punished for speaking their minds, especially in cases where those speaking their minds are right . There are tons of questionable things about religions that have not been solved precisely because of censorship.

I completely agree with Macron on this. People should be able to criticize what they want,as long as they are not doing it just to be mean.

what is even insane is that they believe their own religion is the only right one and those who do not believe in their religion are their enemies and they begin to kill them as a way to justify their own religion,they commit evil and use religion as a cover up,that is why i will never be a fan of any religion....

i do hear some Islamist who claimed that Islam is a religion of peace but it is funny to see the same set of people going about killing others who have criticized Islam and i begin to wonder what happened to their so called religion of peace??
