Getting rid of the noun Blasphemy!!!

Is it Blasphemy an acceptable noun today? Are these statements blasphemies?

  • Richard Dawkins "mocks" the God of the Hebrew Bible as arguably the most unpleasant character in fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.
  • Journalist Christopher Hitchens says about the God of Israel: “God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything.” As the entertainingly acidic Hitchens writes, “monotheistic religion is a plagiarism of a plagiarism of a hearsay of a hearsay, of an illusion of an illusion, extending all the way back to a fabrication of a few nonevents.

If these statements are blasphemies, instead of actual thoughts, then any criticism of anything is therefore a Blasphemy!

Blasphemy is actually

  1. an old-fashioned tyrannical Noun
  2. a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak;
  3. a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser;
  4. a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully
