A liberdade de expressão é tão bonita...

Charlie Hedbo é “um pasquim nojento”, diz D. Duarte: “Nesse aspecto estou inteiramente de acordo com o Papa Francisco I”, esclareceu, acrescentando que no seu entender “não é admissível insultar a crença, a fé e a religião dos outros”.

D. Duarte acrescentou, porém, que é preciso “defender a vida de pessoas que têm actividades que consideramos desprezíveis”, referindo-se aos jornalistas franceses assassinados em Paris.

On free speech, Pope Francis is beginning to reveal the limits to his liberalism: the Pope said: “It’s normal. You cannot provoke. You cannot insult the faith of others. You cannot make fun of the faith of others.” And then, he repeated the gesture.

Whoa! The Pope advocating not turning the other cheek? This really is new territory for the man who has been an admirable champion of the poor and scourge of corruption in his own Church during his brief time as boss.

David Cameron discorda do papa Francisco sobre direito de ironizar com religião: uma sociedade livre tem o direito de ironizar com a religião, discordando da opinião do papa Francisco, que considerou existirem limites para a liberdade de expressão.

"Acho que numa sociedade livre existe o direito de ser ofensivo com a religião dos outros", disse David Cameron, numa entrevista ao canal de televisão norte-americano CBS.

"Eu sou cristão. Se alguém diz algo ofensivo sobre Jesus, poderia considerá-lo ofensivo, mas numa sociedade livre não tenho o direito de libertar a minha vingança sobre" essa pessoa, adiantou.

Gérard Biard: Charlie Hebdo «défend la liberté de religion»: «Chaque fois que nous faisons un dessin de Mahomet, chaque fois que nous faisons un dessin de prophètes, chaque fois que nous faisons un dessin de Dieu, nous défendons la liberté de religion», assure-t-il...

A beginner’s guide to Voltaire, the philosopher of free speech and tolerance: The French are turning to Voltaire for guidance in the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo attack. Here are his key quotes, misquotes, major works – and run-ins with the authorities

Why political solidarity at the Paris Hebdo rally has become the most dangerous threat ever to privacy: Heads of state rarely converge in the cause of basic liberties (E a CNN? "34-Year Veteran Jim Clancy Leaves CNN After Controversial Charlie Hebdo Tweets")

Laughing in the face of danger: the state of satire in the Muslim world: Cartoons depicting Muhammad are unthinkable in Muslim countries. But there are plenty of homegrown satirists poking fun at reactionaries, autocrats and jihadis.

Ridiculing of leaders through satire has a long history: "I see nothing heroic about a bunch of elite white writers and artists picking on the identities and beliefs of minorities," Beirut-based culture writer Yazan Al-Saadi wrote in OpenDemocracy. "Satire is supposed to be an act that punches up to power, and not down to the weak."

Charlie Hebdo and the Other Within: A few days after the horror, brutalism and destruction there is a slowly growing some space for some degree of rationalization of what happened last week. I have two main observations to make here: first and inevitably, freedom of speech needs to be discussed and contextualized, second coinciding processes of globalization and glocalization are occurring.
