Thanks Charlie. This makes good sense, as so much of our freedom and liberty has already been stolen from us. I totally agree that the petition shold include the rights of the child and also that it should guarantee mutual freedom and toleration for virtually everyone. The limitations of the exclusions should include but not be limited to: 1. Religions and belief/non-belief systems that practise intolerance of other's systems.
2. Any and every system that causes pain, misery and/or any other forms of suffering, up to and including death of any sentient being on Earth.

If we truly believe in freedom of speech then we must be able to discuss and critise all religions and ideology.

We must not succumb to the Muslims blasphemy laws either directly or indirectly.

We had this freedom before... But it was took away whilst our nation was scrutinising Islam through the media .

We are slowlybeing stifled and silenced with the aid of the dhimmi police transforming into defacto STASI/censors. As stated in the Hadiths, Islam is using our own laws against us to impose shariah, by closing down criticism. Once we have a right NOT to be insulted, we have no more free speech. Whichever way it goes I will NEVER obey it.

Freedom of religion should not interfere with others’ human freedoms and human rights. When it does, it must be examined in the closest of detail and exhibited to one and all: its tenets revealed, not hidden, and no restriction given to criticism and evaluation and finally legal action if clarity and exposure prevents nothing. Anything less slyly creates a religious authority and a slave class bound by beliefs quite despicable to democracy and decency. To fail in an appraisal of religious exactitude where, for instance, the risks of sex slavery are as high as they are, is to engage in criminal behaviour oneself. Naturally the cause must be tackled and if necessary prosecution of the religion or aspects of it should take place, where that religion is political in aim and practice. Any censorship of such inquiries should be considered criminal, rather than the inquiries and free distribution of information relating to the matter, ‘hate speech’.

The right to say hateful things, criticise and ridicule a faith is freedom of speech.

The freedom to freely practice, debate & criticise any religion is a cornerstone of any free and civilised society. That a petition to ensure these privileges are upheld has to even be created is rather worrying. Government getting too large for its own good, and encroaching on free liberty, should always be resisted.
