As a continuation of our earlier discussion, Al Kresta of Ave Maria Radio recently interviewed me again on the topic of “blasphemy,” including its doctrinal roots. The roughly 14 minute talk can be heard here.
Kresta in the Afternoon’s description of the talk follows:
Description: Just days before an annual observance meant to celebrate the contributions of religious minorities in Pakistan, a Christian man was arrested and charged under the country’s blasphemy laws after he posted comments on Facebook disputing an Islamic belief. Sohail Masih was arrested on Aug. 5 after commenting publicly on the Islamic practice of eating sacrificial meat on the feast of Eid al-Adha and was being kept in custody for his own safety. Raymond Ibrahim joins us with a look at this story and the use of blasphemy laws in Pakistan.
