International Blasphemy Day

From Pharyngula

The Center for Inquiry will launch the first International Blasphemy Day on September 30, the anniversary of the 2005 publication of the Danish cartoons that so inflamed Muslims worldwide. Billed as a free speech event designed to oppose such things as a Muslim-sponsored U.N. resolution banning criticism of religion, the day has drawn the support of people like PZ Myers. Myers, a professor at the University of Minnesota known for intentionally desecrating a consecrated Host, says the day was established to "mock and insult religion without fear of murder, violence, and reprisal"; he wants every day to be Blasphemy Day.

An important day in my calendar for sure.


  1. Excellent! religeous people think its ok to shove their viewpoints on us and say atheists are idiots every day, so one day to do the opposite cant hurt.

  2. Inb4 Murders and Deaths because of this day by religious leaders and followers.

  3. Good thing most christians aren't violent (just stupid).

  4. Haha have you seen those southern Christians from the states they beat gays and non-Christians frequently.

  5. Yeah, like the psychopaths from Westboro Baptist Church.
    Their website is

  6. Thankfully the westboro church is basically just one extended family. Still really scary though that there is people like that in the world.
