This Labour government in the UK was proposing a Law similar to that about inciting racial hatred (dont think this will go ahead now Blair is now in trouble and wants to steer clear of controversy). This was originally pushed by muslim members of his own party. I hold a very strong position on this. Attacking anybody on the grounds of ethnicity, race, gender, disability or lifestyle is morally wrong. BUT What people think and say, and especially what is spouted by people who profess to be scholars and learned should be absolutely fair game for anybody not only to question but also to mock. If more questioning had been done in the past we would all be living in a better world including those who practice religious beliefs!
