Freedom of speech

I wish I had a pound for every time I encounter cases where people just don't get it when it comes to freedom of speech. Like this guy.

He has said.
“I am not against freedom of expression, everybody has the right to their own views.
“However, respect is more important.”

Actually Mr Arif, no it isn't. Freedom of speech is a legal right. Respect isn't. You have no legal right to respect for yourself or your beliefs.

I think the labour party's response was remarkably civil. I'd have told him to stick his blasphemy law up his arse.
