Nanny State For Believers

There seems to be a growing trend of religious militantancy. Many followers of various religions seem to be asking for "special protection" from those who criticize them.
An episode of "South Park" was effectively "banned" because some fundamentalist Catholics were offended by it. Now, apparently, Tom Cruise and his fellow Scientoligist want do the same to another episode. (Which lampoons both)
And left in Europe and the Right in America is only giving more momentum to this thin-skinned nonsense.
In the end, it is non-believers who seem to be prosecuted the most. Its time to start fighting back. All those who believe in freedom of expression need to stand up and be counted. Freedom isn’t free.
Religion should never be free of public scrutiny or a skeptical eye.
