MEMO: Commentary re French Law, Blasphemy - Holy See Involvement
Date: Jan 19, 2015


However, while comments and images considered blasphemous are legal under French law, the country already has numerous restrictions on freedom of speech in place. Comments inciting racial hatred are illegal, for example, as are those defending terrorist acts – a law under which controversial comedian Dieudonné M’Bala M’Bala was arrested last week.

Almost half of those in France believe cartoons of the Muslim Prophet Mohammed – like those printed by satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo – should not be published, a poll said Sunday, with a similar number in favour of “limitations” on free speech.

  • Donna Welles It's as if French law specifially makes an exception to allow for blasphemy, as if the Germans re Nazi swastikas. But reversed.

  • Donna Welles Blasphemy is a 10 commandment. In violation of the "use God's name in vain" commandment. So it's covered under the perview of the Holy See.
