And because people have the right to say critical and disparaging things and even down right repellent and nasty things and no one has the right to censor you (alex jones) or put you in jail (tommy robinson) or kill you (those french cartoonists and the dutch filmmaker) for it in a civilized westernized nation.

Remember, there is nothing wrong with a religion whose adherents will literally try to kill you for mocking the religion.

Section 26J of the Public Order Act (Hate speech act). I can't remember it word for word but this section is an exception to hate speech and says something like:

Mocking, Insulting and dismissing a religious organization is protected as freedom of expression.
