I just read on Derek’s blog that today is International Blasphemy Rights Day. I only have half an hour left to celebrate!
Blasphemy, according to the holy book of Wikipedia, is:
irreverence toward holy personages, religious artifacts, customs, and beliefs.
I’m relatively certain that I committed some act of blasphemy today. But people, can someone out there remind me next year earlier in the day so I can be sure to go out of my way to yell “Christ on a cracker” or suchlike? Also I wonder if there are days to commemorate similar things like apostasy and heresy?
