  1. -02-10-06 Religious Insult Bill Defeated Soundly in England (MSNBC News)
      "The Racial and Religious Hatred Bill ran into loud opposition almost from the moment it was introduced last June. It would have made limited but crucial changes in a 1988 law that made it a crime to 'stir up religious hatred' by use of 'threatening, insulting and abusive' language."

      "No one had a problem with outlawing threatening language. But in a nation shaped by its split from the Roman Catholic Church in 1534, banning religious insults and abuse was going too far. A broad coalition of activists, writers and artists, ranging from Muslims to evangelical Christians to secular humanists, signed a letter urging the billís defeat." 02-06
