I don’t think the EU Court of Human Rights gets human rights

One of the most basic human rights is freedom of speech, a fact lost on the dolts at the EU Court of Human Rights

Defaming Muhammad does not fall under purview of free speech, European court rules

The freedom of speech does not extend to include defaming the prophet of Islam, the European Court of Human rights ruled Thursday.

The Strasbourg-based ECHR ruled that insulting Islamic prophet Muhammad “goes beyond the permissible limits of an objective debate” and “could stir up prejudice and put at risk religious peace.”

The court’s decision comes after it rejected an Austrian woman’s claim that her previous conviction for calling Muhammad a pedophile, due to his marriage to a 6-year-old girl, violated her freedom of speech.

The ECHR ruled Austrian courts had “carefully balanced her right to freedom of expression with the right of others to have their religious feelings protected.”

Protection of feelings? Really? Good luck with that premise EU.

  1. Apparently the EU judiciary has descended back into the Dark Ages, abdicating any right to be considered any kind of moral voice or used as any type of legal authority in other jurisdictions. For shame on them.
