- One of the defining features of a free, liberal, and secular society is the fact that individuals have the unalienable rights to criticize every imaginable scientific theory, belief system, political figure, etc... without fear of persecution.


- No one has the birthright to be protected from being offended.


- This has been one of the foundational tenets of liberal democracles, and it is uniquely enshrined in the first amendment to the U.S. Constitution.


- In the recent past, a disturbing global trend has begun to materialize. For Ex. Ireland has instituted a new blasphemy law.


- OIC ; (recently renamed the organization of Islamic cooperation) which consist of 57 member states.


- If the first amendment cannot guarantee one's right to criticize any and all regions in the most forceful of manner, The united states is no longer a free country.
