Why so serious?

I don’t really understand what ‘blasphemy’ means. I mean, I know the definition, but I don’t get why it matters. What happens if I say something about your religion/faith/culture that you don’t agree with? Does it shake the very foundations? What does it do? How can someone’s innocuous comments change anything in your life?

“That guy, er, y’know. He said something bad about Israel; I was so outraged the next day my foreskin grew back!”

“Don’t you dare create images of our prophets! That’s forbidden! We will however name our children after them, after all what are the chances they will turn out to be a bunch of fuck-tards?”

You want to know what really happens the day someone says something you don’t like? The exact same thing that happened the day before – Nothing.
