Noli me tangere

Treća komisija Ujedinjenih naroda usvojila je neobvezujući zaključak kojom se zemlje članice pozivaju da

You have been found guilty by the elders of the town of uttering the name of our Lord, and so, as a blasphemer, you are to be stoned to death!

You have been found guilty by the elders of the town of uttering the name of our Lord, and so, as a blasphemer, you are to be stoned to death! (JOHN CLEESE in MONTY PYTHON'S LIFE OF BRIAN)

kazne sve oblike klevećenja religija. Spomenuta inicijativa krenula je od predstavnika islamskih zemalja, koji tvrde da bi takav zaključak mogao spriječiti vjersku netrpeljivost i žestoke sukobe među pripadnicima različitih vjera. Naime, muslimanski predstavnici u UN tvrde sljedeće:

“Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism.”

On the other hand, protivnici usvajanja tog akta tvrde da bi primjena istog bila kontraproduktivna, te da bi se pod zakonski opravdanom optužbom bogohuljenja mogla nesmetano kršiti ljudska prava:

“It provides international cover for domestic anti-blasphemy laws, and there are a number of people who are in prison today because they have been accused of committing blasphemy,” said Bennett Graham, international program director with the Becket Fund, a think tank aimed at promoting religious liberty.

Postoji mišljenje da bi usvajanje tog zaključka ponajprije stavilo u težak položaj same muslimane u islamskim zemljama:

“Pakistan has the (toughest) anti-blasphemy laws, and while they are certainly used against lots of minority religions, they are used mainly against Muslims,” said Graham.

“They have been used to intimidate business partners, suppress any reformist ideas, jail people who discuss women’s rights.”

No, tu se pojavljuje jedan problem. Koji su to standardi koji će točno definirati pojam klevećenja religije? Da li se pod tim pojmom smatra ujedno i ukazivanje na mnoge nelogičnosti, apsurde i nehumane postupke koji se vrše u ime dežurnog boga? Kanadski novinar Steven Edwards napisao je sljedeće:

But Western democracies argue that a religion can’t enjoy protection from criticism because that would require a judicial ruling that its teachings are the “truth.” “

Defamation carries a particular legal meaning and application in domestic systems that makes the term wholly unsuitable in the context of religions,” says the U.S. government in a response on the issue to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

The paper also points out the legal difficulty of even defining the term “defamation” since “one individual’s sincere belief that his or her creed alone is the truth conflicts with another’s sincerely held view of the truth.”

Predsjednik UNove Generalne skupštine Miguel d’Escoto Brockmann je na posljednoj konferenciji dao podršku toj inicijativi. Blago nama.

Asked further about an upcoming initiative by Saudi Arabia for a resolution to ban the defamation of religion, which many saw as an infringement of free speech guaranteed by the United Nations Charter, he said that he was unfamiliar with the proposed resolution, but that defamation of religion should be banned as a form of intolerance.

Zar vam to ne lagano smrdi na cenzuru, opresiju i Srednji vijek? Umjesto da razum i racionalnost prevladaju nad vjerskim opskurantizmom, radi se na tome da se religijama zajamči svojevrsni Noli me tangere zakonski oklop na međunarodnoj razini. Ako ćemo tako, onda će i Scientology i raznorazne sekte diljem svijeta moći uživati u blagodatima tog zaključka Ujedinjenih naroda. Ili možda neće, s obzirom da ih “službeni” vjerski autoriteti ne smatraju pravim religijama, što automatski povlači sa sobom jedno posljedično pitanje: koji su to gabariti koji određuju što je, a što nije religija? Koje će tijela definirati što je praznovjerje, što mit i legenda, a što religija? Kako god bilo, nedodirljivost religije ne mora striktno značiti da se to odnosi samo i isključivo na Islam. Naime, u istom članku Bennett Graham tvrdi sljedeće:

“A lot of the violence in India dealing with Hindus and Christians is being spurred on by accusations that Hindu gods are being defamed, while there are also cases against artists in India for depicting Hindu gods in modernist way.”

“There are cases in Russia dealing people suing TV stations for airing South Park and the Simpsons because they see them as defamatory to Christianity,” he explained.

Aha! South Park i Simpsons! A zašto ne i Walt Disney, na primjer? I njegovi su crtići, po svemu sudeći, neprijatelji Kršćanstva.:mrgreen:
