  2. Oolong Colluphid says:

    The last person – so far – to be hanged for blasphemy in Great Britain was a Scot who announced he had become a muslim. It was probably a joke, but Scottish calvinists were never famous for their sense of humour.

  3. It’s a character-building exercise.

  4. Quine Duhem says:

    Doesn’t Mo deny the divinity of Jesus? Doesn’t Jesus deny that the Quran is the last testament of God? Are they being mutually blasphemous? Surely not.

  5. M27Holts says:

    SOG posts for the first time in Ages and a UK election is called the same day?

  6. Author says:

    Thanks, SoG. Fixed now.

  7. M27Holts says:

    Enlightenment & LOGIC v Islam, Freedom of speech v closed minds, SCIENCE v supersticious ignorance. I have capitalised the elements that religious minds are allergic to…

  8. Donn says:

    Punishment is deferred until later, after you’ve expired. At this point, all that’s left is your soul, and that was but fantasy – so as such, it’s in the hands of the fantasy deity.

    Many years ago a man approached me offering religious instruction, and I learned then that one may blaspheme away, and yet be forgiven. Just one exception – no blaspheming the holy ghost. I’m not sure if I have or haven’t, it’s sort of an obscure idea.

  9. M27Holts says:

    Clearly, with Islam the punishment is NOT deferred…since quite a high proportion of Islamists are in agreement with the termination of your existance for calling their prophet a charlatan murdering psychopath….

  10. M27Holts says:

    As Orwell predicted in 1984, the implication of “Thought crime” is truly dystopian…I think the world that Orwell envisaged is here now…in 2024…

    If anyone thinks that I amn’t divine,
    He gets no free drinks when I’m making the wine
    But have to drink water and wish it were plain
    That I make when the wine becomes water again.
    – James Joyce

  12. Peter says:

    The most blasphemous sign/slogan by the U.S. Government: Smokey the Bear. It not only shows a talking bear but claims that only YOU, not God, can prevent forest fires.
    On the subject of talking animals:

  13. Paul T Seed says:

    It is particularly ridiculous for a Christian to call for a book to be banned because it mentions talking animals. By that score, the Bible should be banned, and in particular the story of Balaam’s ass in the book of Numbers.

  14. paradoctor says:

    1. Only you can prevent forest fires.
    2. Smokey the Bear can prevent forest fires.
    3. You are not Smokey the Bear.
    Choose at most two.

  15. M27Holts says:

    Is a talking dog Blasphemous? Fook me Disney is going to go on regulo 9 for all of eternity….

  16. postdoggerel says:

    A group of friars were behind on their belfry payments, so they opened up a small florist shop to raise funds. Since everyone liked to buy flowers from the men of God, the rival florist across town thought the competition was unfair. So, the rival florist hired Hugh MacTaggart, the roughest and most vicious thug in town to “persuade” them to close. Terrified, they did so – thereby proving that Hugh, and only Hugh, can prevent florist friars.

  17. chigau says:

    That is very good.

  18. M27Holts says:

    Very good Postdog, however no real psycho would entertain a name spelled Hugh…more likely Hew….easier to spell…

  19. postdoggerel says:

    It seems il Papa, the inerrant voice and principal primate of the RCC, regarding the acceptance of lgbtq as priests, has issued an apology for saying there are already enough frocciaggine in the Catholic semenaries. Given that Italian is a second language for him one could forgive his use of a rarely used slur. Had it been King Charles III, of the CofE, he would likely have used cockwombles to refer to those unseemly deviates who would seek to hold a powerful seat in the church.

  20. postdoggerel says:

    The link I supplied, above, refers to “flamboyant” gay attitudes. Let it be known that “flamboyant” refers to what happens to your flam when you are in the bathtub.
