Yes, much humour is meant to be offensive, but I'm not talking about poking fun at concepts like the picture in the first thread.It was cute but not very informed on the actual belief system they are trying to poke fun at.
The key words to blaspemy are VULGAR and CONTEMPTUOUS,and the "jokes" that go to extremes to be vulgar about sacred beliefs and dieties, to show their contempt for these beliefs and the people who choose to follow them are what I'm targeting in my "censorship". Sometimes they are just for shock value and aimed at disgusting people.
Then I guess it's all a matter or degree. What may seem offensive to you is not necessarily offensive to others, and I'm sure that there would be more than just a few, while finding no real offence in the cartoon or indeed with vulgar and contemptuous jokes about religion which has been guilty itself of enough vulgarities and contempt for people even of their own faith, who would object somewhat to being generalised as 'disgusting people'.
Blasphemy, to me, is only committed when joking stops actually trying to make people laugh, and turns into a hate speech or is calculated
to hurt the feelings and beliefs of a believer. Although having the job of deciding what constitutes a joke and what an insult is not one you'd want me to have, because my interpretation may well differ from those of a believer in god.
Religious followers, if their belief is strong enough, should be unfazed by any
attempt to ridicule.
