Blasphemy Day International 2009, Sept. 30, is here !. The day, which is part of a campaign to promote free speech on an international scale, should facilitate an opportunity for all people, religious or not, to cast an examining eye toward free speech and the interference that may sometimes come about when speech acts exist in the realm of controversial topics.

Blasphemy, as defined by Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary, is "irreverence toward something considered sacred or inviolable." An example of blasphemy ­­- a real-life one that saw its fair share of controversy - are the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons published on Sept. 30, 2005. The depictions of Islamic prophet Muhammad, published in Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten, are considered by many to be blasphemous to Islam.

So is it ironic that this is my brother and sister-in-laws anniversary?

Cool! I’ve been waiting for a chance to post this:

A traveling faith-healer visits a small town. After his sermon and the passing of the plate for the first time, he calls for anyone who needs healing to come to the stage.

A lady on crutches awkwardly makes her way to the front, and is soon joined there by a timid little man.

“What is your name,” the healer says to the man, “and what is your ailment?”

“My name ith Thimon Thimmons, and I have a thpeech impediment. I have a bad lithp.”

“So I see,” says the healer. “Mr. Simmons, please come up on stage and step behind this curtain.”

Turning to the lady, he says, “Ma’am, we can see your affliction. Please tell us your name.”

“My name is Mrs. Dorothea Smith,” she replies.

“Let me help you up the steps and behind this curtain.” And he does.

He then launches into a fervent prayer, whipping the congregation to a fever pitch. Sweating profusely and trembling with emotion, he grasps the curtain and it begins to shake as if it will fall from its holders.

He turns to the crowd and shouts loudly, “Mrs. Smith! I want you to throw your right crutch over the curtain!”

The crowd gasps as a crutch comes flying over the curtain and lands on the stage with a clang. He then commands her to throw her left crutch over the curtain, and it follows its partner. The crowd shouts, whoops and applauds loudly.

Dramatically, the healer then raises his hands and the crowd falls silent. “And now,” he asks, “Mr. Simmons! What do you have to say to this congregation?”

From behind the curtain, Mr. Simmon’s voice rings out.

“Mithith Thmith juth fell on her ath!”

Blasphemy, as defined by Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary, is "irreverence toward something considered sacred or inviolable."


It seems as though the problem with such a day is that those observing it would consider nothing sacred so they would have nothing to celebrate.

Cute story M48ortal!

I'm still laughing over Mithith Thmith falling on her ath. I don't know why but I laughed until tears ran over that one. I must be in my "simple" motif today.
