        @bbcasiannetwork @ShaziaAwan You're a public broadcaster. "Blashemy"? You mean analysing and critiquing bronze age sky god religions.

        @OutragedMary @bbcasiannetwork @ShaziaAwan They love the term blasphemy. It means pointing out the flaws in their beliefs.

        @Pelicancan @bbcasiannetwork @ShaziaAwan Amazing that the BBC which used to promote free speech now promotes a blasphemy law!
