Norway rejects blasphemy law proposal

Good news from Norway, where Dagbladet reports that the Norwegian parliament has voted overwhelmingly to reject a proposal to extend existing anti-hate laws to include blasphemy has been withdrawn because it was deeply unpopular among all parties – including the party which suggested it and Norway’s religious leaders.

At least, that’s as much as can be gleaned from Google Translate.

    It was not a vote. One of the parties on the coalition government withdrew their proposal because it was hugely unpopular even before it became a formal bill.

    Thanks for that, Vir.

    Still good news. Anything that pisses off Muslims like this is good news.
