When some people use this freedom of expression to provoke or humiliate some others’ values and beliefs, then this cannot be protected in such a way.This quote can be found here, toward the bottom of the web page.
Law Professor Volokh comments:
This view on the part of the Secretary-General is not surprising; many governments and world leaders do indeed support banning supposed blasphemy, “defamation of religions,” and similar provocative or humiliating speech. But it’s still worth noting, I think, especially when we decide whether to legitimize U.N. action related to such matters.So what are the limits? If an angel speaks to me and gives me a new revelation, is that protected, or, if the revelation rejects previous faiths, am I committing blasphemy? How about if your reason leads you to reject all faiths? Are you free to state that and explain your position?
Sign me as still confused by this ongoing conversation.
