Re: Crime of blasphemous libel proposed for Defamation Bill

That's what I was thinking. The court ruled that if you want to convict someone , you need to define blasphemy. It seems to follow that the only reason you would want to define blasphemy is to make it possible to convict... It was a harmless, pointless law before. Now it's one that can be put to use...

Re: Crime of blasphemous libel proposed for Defamation Bill

I'm still in shock. This is completely ludicrous...

I definitely agree that it's the perfect issue to launch AI on.

Re: i am a evangelical christian

And again, Adonai, this needs to be stressed. Even if science doesn't have the answers to your questions, that doesn't make God the answer by default. That is still the God of the gaps argument.

Re: i am a evangelical christian

Re: i am a evangelical christian
