Teddy BearIt was rightly thought to be outrageous that UK teacher Gillian Gibbons (story, news summary) was imprisoned in Sudan under blasphemy laws when children in her class named a teddy bear Muhammad. Now the National Secular Society is leading calls to do something about the UK’s blasphemy laws and have published a letter (with religious backing too) in today’s Telegraph (news story here) outlining their reasons. Evan Harris MP will table an amendment to the Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill in Parliament tomorrow to effectively abolish the law. If you back the change and live in the UK then send an e-mail to your MP urging them to support it!
