I Think Bart Once Called Moe’s and Asked for This Guy


European experts criticise Denmark for taking interventions against religious extremism one step too far, reports Kristeligt Dagblad.

Danish Parliament on Monday adopted the last part of the anti-extremism package, the so-called ‘forkynderlov’, which includes a public sanction list of religious preachers.

According to Ingvill Thorson Plesner, a human rights researcher at University of Olso, and Peter Edge, a professor of law at Oxford Brookes University, the new law is in conflict with religious freedom.

I can’t actually tell if the law is in conflict with established views of ‘religious freedom,’ but this something to watch out for.  On the other hand, I had to blog about this because the law is actually called ‘forkynderlov.’

    On the one hand, the state has an interest in preventing incitement against the civilization it represents, on the other, does one ever trust the state apply a standard which can only be subjective in order to limit the expression of an escential right?

    Personally I don’t trust the state to reasonably enforce such things and think that knowing that people are screaming about burning down cities is itself valuable. A conspiracy can only happen behind closed doors.
