Yep, that about sums up blasphemy.

As the one guy commented though, it's a hell of a dangerous precedent to set, that they dropped the investigation because there weren't enough outraged people. If we can picture the kind of outrage that followed publication of the Mohammed cartoons in Denmark, then do those blasphemy laws come into play? Completely mad.
