Don't tell it to the judge -- at least in Holland
A majority of parties in the Dutch parliament recently backed a measure to jettison a 1930s anti-blasphemy law that they now reckon is no longer relevant. The re-evaluation of the law came after a Dutch court decided that Geert Wilders, an anti-Islam politician, could continue to voice his controversial ideas despite offending many of Holland’s Muslims.
Nevertheless, it remains illegal under Dutch law to insult police officers or the reigning monarch, Queen Beatrix, according to the news agency AP. So while Amsterdam stoners can hurl as much invective as they like at the messiah, they had better mind their Ps and Qs when the coppers confiscate their bags of magic mushrooms.
