    To me the Religious Right looks the same in any country… ours are just a bit more media savvy.

    Oh those poor, oppressed victims of religious discrimination.

    They seek only to govern their nation as their religion requires of them, to put men of faith in control of their nation, but that nasty secular government is persecuting them and denying them their religious freedom to arrest and punish critics and non-believers.

    Yes, clearly, the world needs more protection of religion.

    Because governments run according to religious principles work out so well for everyone.

    If those who would defend Islam behave this poorly, then probably the bloggers have a point and they shouldn't be silenced.

    Rather than try to FORCE people to say good things about your religion, instead behave in such a way that people will say good things voluntarily.

    You can start by not killing your own children who don't want to live by the same religious restrictions you choose to live by.

    I hope the government of Bangladesh is able to avoid passage of an anti-blasphemy law. There is nothing that proves a country's hostility to the principles of freedom more clearly than anti-blasphemy laws.
