Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

A new report launching today, Tuesday, examines every country in the world for legal discrimination and human rights violations which specifically affect atheists, humanists and the non-religious.

  • Atheists can face death sentences for apostasy in twelve state
  • In 39 countries the law mandates a prison sentence for blasphemy, including six western countries
  • The non-religious are discriminated against, or outright persecuted, in most countries of the world

The “Freedom of Thought” report by the International Humanist and Ethical Union, IHEU, found widespread discrimination by governments in every region. (An inaugural edition in 2012 contained 60 countries; the 2013 edition has been expanded to cover every country.)
