Every new law which protects muslims is a law which restricts our freedom.
We already have a Race Relations Act which protects everybody, (well, not the white group obviously), against racial prejudice or discrimination.

I would not want to repeal this law immediately - more urgently the Human Rights Act should be repealed asap.

It is politically correct nonsense, as are the majority of laws under Labour.

I would agree with Herb on the usage of it; PC means that people are now too scared to do anything to Muslims - those who say a word against Islam would be prosecuted, while those preaching hate against Christians e.g. threatening to blow up a Church would not be. That's the way this government/"justice" system is taking laws these days.

We also have free speech in this country; if we want to say we don't agree with a religion we are allowed to. It could also be interpreted the wrong way to ban faith schools etc illegally.

It infringes upon the human right to freedom of speech.

I haven't read this Act, so I don't know enough about it to say whether I think it should be repealed or not.

Having said that, the main problem that I see with this sort of legislation is the danger that it will be used to prevent any criticism of Islam. I would be apprehensive too that it might even be used to prosecute people who merely call for Muslims in Britain to be offered incentives to move back to a Muslim country.

At the same time, I very much doubt whether - at least under either a Labour or Tory government - it will ever be used to prevent Islamic clerics encouraging their congregations to hate and murder both us and any Muslim who is brave enough to abandon Islam.
