Freedom of expression is something precious that we must protect our society. We must have the right to express our views. It is a prerequisite for a democratic society. But freedom of expression is something that can also be abused. One of the things that Jesus Christ went through, which was part of his suffering before he underwent a painful death was that he was mocked. The mockery was both verbally and physically. Jesus was mocked because he recognized that he was the king of the Jews and had a crown of thorns pressed down on his head and a cloak laid on their shoulders. How should we as Christians behave towards our fellow human beings? Yes, not Jesus critics made in each case.
Yes, though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, this would be me nothing. (1 Cows 13: 3)
To express their opinion, freedom of expression, but to mock, ie shape, is not freedom of expression. We should show respect for our fellow man, which does not mean that we necessarily agree with them in their opinions or beliefs. As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we know that we are to live in such a way that we have the Holy Spirit's presence. Paul expresses in praise of love that it does not matter what we do, if we do not do it in love.
Sometimes that bothered my two boys together. One of them can run crying to me and complain about how he has been kicked and beaten by her brother. Such terrorism is not accepted in our family, but at the same time, I ask, of course, why the former brother struck the other. The answer is many times that the kinds and kicks come in response to a verbal provocation. Provocation does not give the right to retaliate, but provocation in itself is not right. As a mother rebukes I both my boys. Both have acted wrongly. Then of course there is no excuse for terrorism, but that there is any right to legitimize mockery.
In Sweden, you have the right to think and say almost anything you want. You have the right to express yourself on the radio, on television and on the web. The Freedom of Expression states of these rights. There is also what not to do, such as slander or insult another person. (Source: riksdagen.se )
Yes, what you say about the above quotes? Well, those who advocate the right to violate believe that they violate Muhammad - who is dead. But if Muhammad is dead, how can he be offended? Of course, is not directed against the mockery of a dead person can not be violated without the ridicule aimed at the target group that feels offended; those who believe that Muhammad was God's true profet.Frågor that these are not simple and I notice in various forums that the views on free speech differ between members of the Church. All do not look at it as I do. We are members of the church and go to the temple, however, include covenants which among other things means that we must not mock second people.Although I can to some extent feel fragmented in terms of, for example, satire artwork. My uncle took several years Gothenburg Trade and Sjöfartstidning. The magazine was known among other things for its satire drawings of Nazism in 1930 century. Using various means to combat xenophobia and racism does not feel foreign to me, but to mock people's religion is simply reprehensible. He who is without sin may cast the first stone.https://www.lds.org/new-era/1974/08/a-serious-look-at-humor?lang=eng
