We must have the freedom to mock Islam | Coffee House

Good to see the good ol' Speccie take up this issue: the demonising of a British gymnast who mocked Islam. Just a bit of fun on a private video. That would have meant nothing if he'd mocked Catholics, or Mormons, or Buddhists, or atheists.
I wrote about it a few days ago saying our reaction should have been "So what??".
In fact it's been the opposite and we've done the job of Islamists: we have instituted the Islamic sharia law on blasphemy. We have done it for the Islamists and the jihadists. We have done it on their behalf. We have carried water for the Islamic extremists.
Shame on us.
