Is there a case for suspension of Freedom of Speech when it comes to
religion? Do you believe multiculturalism has failed in Europe? This report
raises many questions.

Godless Liberals... your comments, please.

Multiculturalis m isn't the problem, it is simply a fact, not a philosophy. The problem is instead of having straight across the board freedom of speech, which means everyone must accept it's costs (such as allowing groups to spew hate, ra...cism, make fun of your religion, etc), cultural & moral relativism have combined with political correctness to form a variant of what I call "almost free speech" whereby it is "fixed" so as not to allow what is deemed to be unacceptable, racist, or offensive ( holocaust denial, Nazi slogans, etc.). It's the walking on eggshells version of free speech and it is what we have here in Europe, and it is really problematic, hence why you hear all these folks from our side of the pond moaning about what they call " multiculturalis m", but it's really cultural and moral relativism wed to political correctness in being overly respectful of other's religion. Respect people who deserve respect but DO NOT RESPECT RELIGION!!!!

The problem here is two-fold.

First, it is necessary to acknowledge that certain viewpoints are, by definition, harmful. The FLDS here in the United States is a good example of a religious group that is only harmful and nothing else. We have to more properly define the difference between harmful and non-harmful social, political, and religious opinions.

Second, it is necessary to acknowledge that some criticism is honest and constructive, while others are simply attacks. Clearly defining the difference between them is imperative.

I believe that this woman attacked Islam when she called them an enemy. I also believe, however, that much of Islam does seem to have become something that cannot be permitted in rational, civilized societies. It's a sad irony, considering that Islam was responsible for one of the great renaissance's of science and culture long ago. Islam now seems to be a fundamentalist doctrine by definition, and this is unfortunate.
