Another reason to keep Turkey out of the EU....

If this is the kind of thinking they want to bring to the EU, then keep them out....
Deep divisions have appeared among European Eunion governments over suggestions that they should alter their blasphemy laws to protect Islam, and not just Christianity.

Abdullah Gul, the Turkish foreign minister, sparked disagreement among his EU counterparts at a weekend meeting in Austria, when he called for European nations to review existing laws, to ensure they outlawed the "defamation" of all religions.

Mr Gul told a meeting of EU and Balkan foreign ministers in Salzburg that many Muslims believed that European laws amounted to a double-standard, protecting established Christian religions, and banning anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial, while doing nothing to defend Muslims who felt offended.
He doesn't understand anything about free speech.

... So why does christianity get protection when other religions don't? It's all or nothing, people. Especially considering the surging populations of non christians across the EU.
