Blasphemy in your country.

Recommended Posts

Ascer

How is blasphemy seen in your country? I was wondering if abroad was like here. In Italy blasphemy is kinda a social taboo, and a VERY big no-no in tv, radio, and such. Some people got banned from tv shows for that. Many people use blasphemy as a form of swearing in daily life, and you can even get fined by the police for that.

It's not like saying "God damn", it's something like a super-profanity. Really.

On the other side blasphemy has a large comic relief, since it's so commonly unacceptable that it's considered very funny by some (quite a lot, most of young people in fact) people to insult divinities in public, blasphemous youtube videos are some of the most clicked and famous "funny" videos, some of these videos can now be considered "cult". I was wondering if this happens only in Italy or in other countries too.

I don't think there are 'blasphemous' things here in Spain...

 

-Not singing the national anthem when prompted

I know of someone close to my family who went to see a boxing combat to Las Vegas, I'm not sure when but I think it was many years ago (maybe it was a Mike Tyson combat, I can't say for sure). Since they were foreign, they didn't stand up when the national anthem was sounding and they got kicked out and escorted by police back to the airport.

Not to sound like a dick, but I'm not sure I believe that story. I go to a sh*t ton of sporting events here in the states and I never participate in the anthem. It isn't mandatory and participation certainly is in no way required (and enforced) by any law.

I guess it maybe was a little exagerated anecdote.That's what I was told anyway :p

I literally cannot think of a time when anyone in England has complained seriously about blasphemy against Christianity. Islam however...

 

Well let's not go there, I like my hands attached to my arms.

It is blasphemy to put mayo on your French fries here and it really upsets me, because I like to put mayo on my French fries.

In Spain, every region has it's own Blasphemy. In Cataluña if you burn a Catalan flag or you wave a Spanish flag in dowtown Girona, prepare to run.

Well, same than here in the Basque Country (I'd say mostly in Gipuzkoa, though), but it's not something we would be talking at countrywide level.

Here in the USA hanging the flag upside down or letting the flag touch the ground, also burning it is just about the most disrespectful thing you can do I have heard of shooting because someone let the a flag touch the ground or someone burning it for no reason

What? Hanging the US flag upside down is a distress signal, not anything "blasphemous"

I think some people are missing the point here. The guy who made the topic was literally talking about Blasphemy laws against God. Not 'what is some culturally uncouth thing you can do in your country.'

I totally forgot about it being a diistress signal

I'm in Australia. Pretty good with separation of church from state here. In 1970 there was a poem published here called "c*nt is a Christian Word". It got tried for obscenity and the publisher won. They actually managed to a get priest to testify that one of the lines in the poem about being f*cked by "Gods great steel penis" was a "novel, though accurate" description of a nuns relationship with god.

 

About the most blasphemous thing you can do here is not to like sport, which can be annoying when more than half of your newspapers and news broadcasts are sports news.

The thing about Blasphemy is that only man considers it evil.

A God would take care of the Blasphemous on its own without the need of mortal interference.

 

I remember a family being shunned because they used three fingers to cross themselves when the local Religious used only two. :) People do the silliest things in the name of a God.

 

I've never seen anyone harmed by a God because someone else 'cursed' at them.

Prayers (which a curse is) are only answered in the mind of the believer.
