I’ve even been ridiculed on my comment in this post.
So I’ll just pick out two quotes that sum up my feelings on this.
From Danish writer reflects on uproar – Europe – International Herald Tribune, Rushy Rashid says:
“I’ll fight in the name of free speech but not without respect for the consequences. Even if this freedom of speech is very broad, it is not unlimited. You have limits where your morals come in.”
And from Annan: Press freedom should respect religion, Kofi Annan says:
” … the freedom of the press should always be exercised in a way that fully respects the religious beliefs and tenets of all religions.”
There. That should be my last post on this topic. I will just agree to disagree with everyone else who believes that the sanctity of freedom of speech is paramount, no matter what the costs are to humanity.
