BBC Blasphemy

Trevor Phillips, chairman of Britain’s Commission for Racial Equality, has called for parliament to scrap antiquated blasphemy laws that punish “attacks on Christianity” with life imprisonment, but does not punish similar “attacks” on other faiths. Phillips, whose commission also strongly supports Britain’s controversial “hate speech” bill, makes his plea as a Christian activist group, Christian Voice, has threatened BBC with blasphemy prosecution for broadcasting Jerry Springer — The Opera. The group also circulated the home addresses of the executives responsible for the BBC broadcast.
