Let The Games Begin

Steve rightly points out that the Government's obnoxious religious hatred bill is so loosly drafted that more or less anything can be argued to be illegal. It's actually worse than that: AFAIK, the defintion of religion is left dangling, so that almost anything can be argued to be a religious belief. Or, to put it another way, call our wannabe First Lady 'the Wicked Witch' and the Wiccan's could drop a dime on you. Nice, hey ? After all, we already have Satanists in the Fleet and in prison, so I guess that wraps it up for any more showing of 'Rosemary's Baby'.

Of course, the government will only prosecute in special cases (i.e. those involving Muslims), but there's always private prosecutions. We should start a sweepstake now on when Christian Voice will bring their first case to court.
