The End of Pax Europa?

Recommended Posts

What is considered pedophilia has always been cultural.  These men (and sometimes women) are attracted to various ages. But every culture has always had an age that is considered too young. Long before 1896. The ability or inability to have a child because she was too young has been used the most in various societies historically.

I reckon all religions should be criticised before thy can be taught to the young. And they should pay the same taxes as any other organisation, rugby club, dog and pony show... See how long their beliefs sustain them without state benefits...

Many of the European Royalty got married at silly young ages. Marriage as a political tool is common. Who knows when anyone consulted anything.

According to Islamic texts, the 7th century Arabian who founded Islam was betrothed to Aisha when she was six, and the marriage was consummated when she was nine

Europe’s top human rights court has ruled that comments about Mohammed having pedophilic tendencies are not covered by the right to freedom of expression, agreeing with the assessment of courts in Austria that the remarks constituted “an abusive attack on the Prophet of Islam which could stir up prejudice and threaten religious peace.”

A seven-judge European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) panel in Strasbourg concluded that the Austrian courts had “carefully balanced the applicant’s right to freedom of expression with the rights of others to have their religious feelings protected, and to have religious peace preserved in Austrian society.”...

Is saying that Muhammad was not the Prophet of Allah also not covered by free speech? Where does one draw the line when it comes to "the rights of others to have their religious feelings protected ?  Can no religions be criticised?

Indonesia has a great law, often used, no "god" can be criticized, anything from Allah, Christ, Buddha, Krishna, whoever. 

 

It's a good rule i think. Banning religion until your 18wouldbe better, but this is good

There is a strong undercurent of nationalism throughout a number of European and eastern European nations. This is probably the biggest threat to the EU. The UK leaving is huge. Italy and Spain may demand so much economic help, it will further exasperate the union and it will weaken the EU. If the economic crash that is expected is worse than we think, all this and other factors mentioned prior will threaten the EU. But a death knell? I don't think so but the EU could be far more weakened in the not too distant future.
