Pastors Settle ‘Vilifying Islam’ Case

* A frivolous lawsuit that should have been thrown out of court ends in a Mexican standoff:

* The ‘vilification’ occurred when the pastors were publicly reading from the Koran:

Danny Nalliah and Daniel Scot have long been embroiled in this battle for free speech. Why should vilifying Islam, or vilifying Christianity, or vilifying anything you like, be against the law at all?

CBNNews.com – A five-year battle over free speech in Australia’s state of Victoria is over.
Pastors Danny Nalliah and Daniel Scott were charged with vilifying Islam.

They have reached what is being called a mediated settlement in the case.

The Islamic Council of Victoria state has agreed that citizens have the right to “robustly debate religion” and “criticize religious beliefs” within the limits of the law.

Terms of a monetary settlement have yet to be disclosed.

However, both sides must share legal costs.

The two pastors spent more than $500,000 defending their right to criticize Islam.

* From a comment at Dhimmi Watch:

The Islamic Council of Victoria state has agreed that citizens have the right to “robustly debate religion” and “criticize religious beliefs” within the limits of the law.

Wow! Muslims agree that dhimmis have the right to robustly criticize Islam!? Good news, but how long before they spin it?

* ‘Within the limits of the law” obviously means sharia law. Infidels have no right to criticize Islam…

* The Islamic Council of Victoria state has agreed that citizens have the right to “robustly debate religion” and “criticize religious beliefs” within the limits of the law.

Translation: you can “criticize religion within the limits of the law;” but, you will be sued every time you criticize Islam, making it so expensive to defend your rights that eventually, you will keep your criticisms to yourselves because you can’t afford not to.

This is a BIG win for islam; a BIG lose for everyone else.

  1. PLAN:——

    Continue to quote the Qur’an and, in a moderated way, show how it promotes violence——— do this publicly( I’ll do it) and constantly until the muslims do not have enough hands to catch all the balls.
    Do it in every State and Territory, do it every day and night.
    If I did this, I would have to go to prison because I don’t have money to pay ‘damages’ or legal fees they would have to imprison me for my beliefs.
    Interesting thought.

  2. I was most unimpressed with this outcome. Isn’t it what one calls a Pyrrhic victory?
    Islam “allows” us to debate? Since when do they run the country?
    Oooops,,I forgot. They think they rule the world!
