In a secular context, there cannot be a “right to blasphemy” for the simple reason that there is no recognition of a “sacred”, only of “freedom of speech”. But, nevertheless, the concept of freedom of religion and the prohibition against hate speech push the courts to find some sort of a secular version of blasphemy that sacralises the inner feelings of the believers – which is the kiss of death for any religious transcendence, reduced to a purely emotional state of mind.
