As an all powerful god is alleged to be the final decider of each individual's fate after death, why is the term blasphemy relevant or necessary?
If an individual decides to be offended on gods behalf (it's as if god is incapable of sorting our his own affairs!), that's their affair, but why is it necessary to institute a procedure that aims to protect god from people who state that they do not believe in him, or believe in a different god?
Is it assumed that god is so petty, vain and vulnerable to criticism that if he is not revered constantly he will fly into a tantrum like a 5 yr old child?! Whatever happened to the human saying, "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me"?
We all know that however much we deny it, words can hurt us emotionally, but this is god we are talking about!!
