Robert Spencer provides chilling commentary about the anti-free speech case in Australia.
"There are some hints that the outcome of the case was virtually predetermined. When during the trial Scot began to read Qur’anic verses that discriminate against women, a lawyer for the Islamic Council of Victoria, the organization that brought the suit, stopped him: reading the verses aloud, she said, would in itself be religious vilification. Dismayed, Scot replied: “How can it be vilifying to Muslims in the room when I am just reading from the Qur’an?”"
The dumb government in Victoria has just set a very dangerous precedent. This is the same case that was linked to last Saturday.
