Turkish court orders facebook to block pages insulting Mohammad. Facebook ignores them. January 26, 2015

A court in Turkey (you know, the great moderate Muslim success story) has ordered facebook to block several pages it says insult the prophet Mohammad:

A Turkish court has ordered Facebook to block a number of pages deemed insulting to the Prophet Mohammad, threatening to stop access to the whole social networking site if it does not comply, state broadcaster TRT reported.

Thankfully, facebook is pretty much ignoring them:

The order, made by the court on Sunday, followed a request by a prosecutor, TRT said. A source familiar with the matter told Reuters on Monday that Facebook had blocked one page in response to a valid legal request from Turkish authorities.

Muslims in Turkey are free to not insult Mohammad (who was a pedophile) all they like.  But they can’t force others to abide by their religious taboos.  You can’t force other people to live your religion (well, you can, but it’s immoral to do so).

"Totally different pope. This post is nine years old."

Holy fuck
"Meanwhile, the BBC proudly announces that the Pope will enlighten its UK audience with his ..."

Holy fuck
"He was testing the new Church policy! Yeah, that's it..."

Holy fuck
