"Blasphemer Day!"
    #11169724 - 10/02/09 02:39 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Mark Your Calendar, 'Blasphemy Day' Is Here
  Devout Catholic turned non-believer, Ronald Lindsey, who heads the Center for Inquiry in Amherst, New York, has used his deep belief in the freedom of expression to organize the world first "Blasphemy Day" with the Campaign for Free Expression.

Blasphemy day was marked Wednesday with exhibits, lectures, and a series of events throughout North America.
Wednesday was the 5th anniversary of a Danish Newspaper printing a cartoon of Mohammed which caused the ire of Muslims.

"We think religious beliefs should be subject to examination and criticism just as political beliefs are, But we have a taboo on religion." Linsey said. "There's nothing wrong with God that a dose of reality won't cure."
Do you celebrate Blasphemy Day?
You may choose only one

What's the point?

Anyone who's going to celebrate this day is probably already not religious.

No, but I will if you can tell me the date, so I can mark it for next year.

The point is, that it would raise awareness for alternate perspectives. The religous and devout never take the skeptics view, most of them never consider the world from someone elses eyes.

In the same way that freedom of speech and satire make an impact, so too would this holiday.
