Re-Reconquista: Spain Adopts Islamic Death Penalty for Blasphemy

So, in Spain if you blaspheme Mohammad then you may have your residency revoked and deported to a country that kills blasphemers? Who needs an Islamic reconquista when the Spanish government does all the hard work for you?

Imran Firasat, a Muslim-turned-Christian from Pakistan who currently resides in Spain, is facing down a Spanish government that seems determined to punish him for his film, The Innocent Prophet, about the prophet Muhammad. The Spanish government has: 1) revoked his Spanish residency and now threatens to extradite him; and 2) initiated a prosecution for violating a Spanish hate speech law. The Spanish authorities have justified their revocation of his residency on the grounds that he is "threatening national security with the production of this video."....

The most disturbing part of this Spanish campaign against Mr. Firasat is that the Spanish government really should know better than to push for Imran Firasat's deportation from Spain. As the government is aware, if he is sent to Pakistan, he may face death for his frequent blasphemy.

2 Islam is blaphemy for followers of Christ because Islam is "another gospel" that according to St Paul is cursed and Mohammed as having listened to Satan masquarading as an agel of light. John the apostle considers religions like Islam as anti Christ becasue it denies Jesus as the Son of God. I will file a protest with the Spanish embassy!

3 In history the Spanish used to be some real hard asses. Note; explorations of the Americas.
Probably rolling in their graves over the modern pussies. Apologies to all cats.

8 When this hate speech laws first came up I knew that sooner or later it would turn to kick some in the ass. Ask and demand hate speech laws? Well the chicken as come home to roost. What's good for the goose is good for the gander. Hate speech laws are against freedom of speech. People without freedom of speech aren't free.

9 Look what happened to Mark Steyn in Canada. Look at the nonsense that goes on in our schools and workplaces with its endless political correctness.
