CFI Canada is proud to be working with organizations around the world to call for an end to all blasphemy laws.

If your organization — whether religious or secular, human rights-based or otherwise advocating freedom of expression — supports the aims and strategy of the End Blasphemy Law Campaign, then please get in touch and join us.

As Eric Adriaans, National Executive Director of Centre For Inquiry Canada says,

“We defend and promote everybody’s right to discuss, criticise and ridicule ideas and beliefs, even when this offends other people. We have rights, our beliefs do not. We respect the right of people to democratically debate their opinion on freedom of speech issues.”

Let’s all be part of the We.

    The world is headed towards total world secularism. Barring, of course, asteroid destruction or a manmade equivalent.

    Now is the time to start making lists.

    In the politically democratic realm, the ruling class will want to maintain its perpetual inclusion.

    They have to be reminded that there is a list. Something akin to Martin Luther’s.

    Even archaic monarchist realms don’t want to be completely banned from future leadership opportunities.

    Even more to ponder, by the current oligarchs, is the problem of near future retributions. Remember South Africa? Well, that was a very mild and controlled retribution. Eighteenth Century Paris was closer to the expected thing.
