Blasphemy Laws

"Every culture has blasphemy laws. They are not always called that, but no society allows citizens to rail against the reigning deity. In our pluralistic times, these blasphemy laws are called "hate crimes" legislation, among other euphemisms, but they are really religious protections to keep the reigning god, demos, from being blasphemed."

Doug Wilson, The Case For Classical Christian Education pg. 73

NOTE: "Demos" is greek for the populace, or the masses, and relates in the context of the quote to democracy, or egalitarianism.
