"MUIS says that in Singapore, no one is allowed to ridicule or cast aspersions on the faith of a person under the cloak of free expression."
Does that mean I can't mock the Flat Earth Society?
How about question the Church of Scientology?
Can I object to Creationism, since it is based on people's faith?

And why does religious fury at perceived slights appear disproportionate (and bent towards threats and acts of violence rather than reasoned rebukes) to the supposed offence? And why the double standards, where religious claims have immunity from all criticism? "
