Why Anti-Blasphemy Laws Ban All Religions

The effort by a large portion of the Muslim world, including the Egyptian and Iranian presidents, to render blasphemy illegal around the globe is truly, really stupid, as well as immoral. Here's why.

 

According to Islam, Jesus Christ was a mere mortal prophet. He was not the Son of God who is God as per the Holy Trinity of God, the Son of God, and the Holy Ghost. Therefore, Islam is inherently committing blasphemy against Christianity and risks offending Christians. Since Islam is blasphemous, and since blasphemy must be illegal in all nations, then Islam must be illegal in all countries.

 

According to Christianity, Mohammed is a false prophet, a deceiver who has misled billions from following the word of the one true God. Therefore, Christianity is inherently committing blasphemy against Islam and risks offending Muslims. Since Christianity is blasphemous, and since blasphemy must be illegal in all nations, then Christianity must be illegal in all countries.

 

According to Judaism, Christ and Mohammed, assuming either of them actually existed, made false claims. Therefore, Judaism is inherently committing blasphemy against Christianity and Islam and risks offending adherents to both. Since Judaism is blasphemous, and since blasphemy must be illegal in all nations, then Judaism must be illegal in all countries.

 

According to Abrahamism, all nonAbrahamic pagan faiths deny to a greater or lesser extent the reality or ultimate truth of Abraham, Christ or Mohammed. Therefore, Abrahamism is inherently committing blasphemy against all nonAbrahamist sects and risks offending pagans. Since all Abrahamism is blasphemous, and since blasphemy must be illegal in all nations, then all Abrahamism must be illegal in all countries.

 

According to nonAbrahamistic paganism, all Abrahamism abjectly denies the truth of any nonAbrahamic faith. Therefore, nonAbrahamist faiths are inherently committing blasphemy against Abrahamism and risks offending adherents. Since nonAbrahamist paganism is blasphemous, and since blasphemy must be illegal in all nations, then nonAbrahamist paganism must be illegal in all countries.

 

According to atheism, all theism is false. Therefore, atheism is inherently committing blasphemy against all theism and risks offending theists. Since all atheism is blasphemous, and since blasphemy must be illegal in all nations, then all atheism must be illegal in all countries.

 

The inevitable conclusion driven by the internal logical of anti-blasphemy theory is that all theism and atheism is committing offensive blasphemy against one another, one way or another, so all expressions of theism and atheism must be banned. All the churches, temples, mosques, and atheist discussion groups must be rendered illegal and closed. No one can express any sort of opinion for fear of offending the precious feelings of others.
