Fundamentalist religious churches in New Zealand today, and especially those following Islam, actively preach the dire consequences of blasphemy, instilling 'fear' into their followers. Families and religious communities still revile and ostracize those that speak against, or depart from religion. Christian books & preachers go against an individual's rights to freedom and non-belief. The Bible, The Quaran - preachers & followers of organised religion are equally culpable in the violation of 'hate speech' - teaching that it is right to sit in judgment on those that are not like them.
'You' preacher - soldThree main religions - Jewish, Christian, Muslim. All following the same God, yet they vehemently deny one another. With hostility. And from this, thousands upon thousands of separate denominations, all saying 'their' brand of religion is the 'true' word of God. They finger point at each other - saying 'false preacher'. The words in religious books, along with preaching...... impose judgements within the minds of followers, who in turn point their finger against those who are different, or do not fit the requirements of 'moral, good & correct'.
