In this television clip from al-Majd (Saudi) television, leading Saudi cleric Muhammad Al-Munajid warns that freedom of speech cannot be allowed, because it might lead to freedom of belief.

They're afraid to lose the power and wealth they have now, just as the Roman catholic clergy was in the dark ages.

No, Nacht. In this case, Islam religiously dictates what is forbidden and what is permissable.

BTW, Judaism's halachic laws do the same.

Christianity is almost lacking in divine legal standards.

These are not the same.

The one thing Muslim clerics are afraid of is not so much Muslims converting as they might stop being pious altogether. Unbelief or secularism is viewed by clerics as a form of atheism.

Even God gave man free will. If we go through the motions of religious rituals but are not sincere it doesn't please God.
Islam sure has a strange view of right and wrong.
What exactly is 'divine legal standard'? Morals? Commandments?
I would rather meet a moral atheist than an immoral 'religious' person! Even an immoral atheist would be better, at least that wouldn't be hypocritical.
