Blasphemy Day – Freedom of Expression

By Sapphire Phoenix on September 30, 2017

As you know, September 30th marks the celebration of a day known as the International Blasphemy Day. On this day, it has become a tradition that people can openly express their thoughts and criticisms on various issues, often about religion; hence the term “blasphemy”.

This day can be viewed as a celebration of freedom of expression in a nonviolent manner. It should not be a day of conflict or insult, but a day in which society can peacefully voice their viewpoints on a religious subject, and comes as an opportunity for people to unite in the fact that we all have different perspectives which we can choose to communicate, while also opening ourselves up to dialogue and different opinions.
