Blasphemy: There Is No Such Thing

10407879_727029014017737_7887913191259200617_nWhat exactly is blasphemy? “The act or offense of speaking sacrilegiously about God or sacred things; profane talk.” If someone is truly secure in their faith, then it won’t matter how someone else talks about religion. (Bullying tactics and attacking someone’s character are separate issues.)

Blasphemy is a concept created by people who used religion to control others; blasphemy was a direct threat to their control because it challenged the ideas that allowed them to manipulate and control people. It’s still a law in many countries today, and even in the US today it pops up now and then.

What do you think of blasphemy? Have you ever been called a blasphemer?
