ECHR Rules Against Free Speech

    The European Court of Human Rights ruled against an Austrian woman who claimed calling the Prophet Muhammad a pedophile was protected by free speech. ..

    The woman in 2009 held two seminars entitled "Basic Information on Islam," during which she likened Muhammad's marriage to a six-year-old girl, Aisha, to pedophilia.

    The marriage according to Islamic tradition was consummated when Aisha was nine and Muhammad was around 50. Aisha was the daughter of Muhammad's best friend and the first caliph, Abu Bakr.

    The court cited the Austrian women stating during the seminar that Muhammad "liked to do it with children" and "... A 56-year-old and a six-year-old? ... What do we call it, if it is not pedophilia?"

    An Austrian court later convicted the woman of disparaging religion and fined her €480 ($546). Other domestic courts upheld the decision before the case was brought before the ECHR.

    On today’s ruling, the ECHR said it “found in particular that the domestic courts comprehensively assessed the wider context of the applicant’s statements and carefully balanced her right to freedom of expression with the right of others to have their religious feelings protected, and served the legitimate aim of preserving religious peace in Austria.”

    This is the prejudice of low expectations. If some Muslims can't handle some inconvenient facts about their beloved beloved prophet then fuck their feelings. Every magazine and newspaper in Europe should put the facts about the pedophile prophet on their front page in protest.

    What in the actual fuck. Stating uncontested facts is now illegal on the basis of protecting the feelings of the self-deluded?

    The whole concept of "free speech" seems to be an illusion these days even in places where it is considered a "right".

    Apparently some dead prophets are to be protected from "free speech" and their followers having their feelings hurt.😯

    Apparently self preservation is of higher value than free speech.

    So here we have, a sinister cult, that the founder ordered killing anyone who doesn't follow him, asked his followers to do so, not to mention that its acceptable to use women that have been captured in the war as spoils, as sex slaves. While under the sharia law, a woman is just an object, a sex pleasure for man, and eventually has no any rights. He was married with a 9 year old, oh yeah he was engaged while she was 6, and this doesn't make him a paedophile. And the rest of the world, has no right to speak the facts or point the errors, because the followers of that cult will be offended...does it makes sense???

    A good demonstration of how the EU should not have so much control and why leaving it is absolutely the correct thing to do. They claim to stand for Human Rights but really don't, the exact opposite.

    Mohammed was a sick pedophile and the EU can go swivel if they think they can prevent that being said or known.

    Any Muslim that doesn't like that being said should question why they are so upset and if it's so unacceptable, why are they following such a sick asshole.

    Sad day for free speech.

    If our ruling elite were in collusion with the Saudi government and other groups that want Islam to dominate, how would it be any different?

    To work out who rules over you, first determine who you cannot criticise.

    Wow! Why is europe so intent on kissing the mohammedans collective ass?

    By that I don't mean fear of Islam as much as fear of anti-Islamic violence and social breakdown.
