Previosly posted on Booman, but I repeat it here as there seems to be some debate on laws in various countries.
Section 266B of the Danish Criminal Code: "Any person who, publicly or with the intention of wider dissemination, makes a statement or imparts other information by which a group of people are threatened, insulted or degraded on account of their race, colour, national or ethnic origin, religion, or sexual inclination shall be liable to a fine or to imprisonment for any term not exceeding two years."
Section 140 of the Danish Criminal Code: "Those who publicly mock or insult the doctrines or worship of any religious community that is legal in this country, will be punished by a fine or incarceration for up to four months."
Just havent seen these posted yet. But they make intersting reading when considering all the arguements over freedom of speech. I wonder what you have to do to break one of these laws? I wonder if they cover insulting Islam?
