Blasphemy culture mustn’t undermine freedom of the press
The press regulator is consulting on guidelines which will inform the way stories about Islam and Muslims are reported. It must not endorse taboos which shut down debate and harm social cohesion, says Chris Sloggett.
The Muslim Council of Britain is on a drive to change the way the press reports on Muslims and Islam. Earlier this year it held training on 'holding the media to account'. It's created a network of media monitors. Its spokesperson Miqdaad Versi has enjoyed some favourable coverage of his own, including a fawning profile in The Guardian, in light of his focus on this issue.
And this week it's launched a report which claims 59% of print stories and 43% of broadcast clips featuring Muslims in the last three months of 2018 were negative. The report names the Mail on Sunday, the Daily Mail Australia, Christian Today and The Spectator as the worst offenders.

Employee sacked for sharing clip mocking religion is reinstated
A man who was sacked by the supermarket chain Asda for sharing a video clip of the comedian Billy Connolly mocking religion on social media has been reinstated.
Brian Leach was dismissed last month after a colleague complained that a sketch he shared, in which Connolly said "religion is over" and called suicide bombers "wankers", was anti-Islamic.
He was employed as a checkout assistant at Asda's Dewsbury store in West Yorkshire.
The National Secular Society has been in touch with Mr Leach throughout an internal appeals process and has now learned that he has been given his job back.
NSS chief executive Stephen Evans said the decision was "a victory for common sense".
"We welcome Asda's decision to reinstate Brian Leach, although this case raises broader concerns about the extent to which employers can legitimately restrict their employees' freedom of expression on social media."
Brian Leach had removed the relevant social media post and apologised to his colleagues before he was sacked.

BBC dilutes protections for religious ideas after NSS lobbying
The BBC has watered down some protections for religious ideas but retained a clause placing a premium on depictions of the Islamic prophet Muhammad in new editorial guidelines.
The corporation has removed a requirement that content "likely to cause offence" to religious people should be referred to a senior editorial figure following National Secular Society lobbying.
The NSS responded to a consultation on the BBC's draft guidelines in November and raised concerns that the corporation was deferring excessively to religious sensitivities.
The final version still requires such material to "be editorially justified as judged against audience expectations and generally accepted standards", a requirement which the NSS also criticised.
The BBC has also removed a requirement to avoid "derogatory treatment" of "religions" unless it is "justified by the context". The NSS criticised the requirement on the basis that it treated religions as equivalent to people or groups of people.
But a requirement to "have strong editorial justification" for depicting Muhammad, and to refer any depictions to "a senior editorial figure", has been retained in full. The NSS argued that the requirement placed "a particular taboo" on such depictions.
In 2015 the BBC overturned an outright ban on depictions of Muhammad after the NSS challenged it in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo atrocity.
The guidelines also include a new line saying blasphemy laws around the world "can be very different" from those in the UK and content producers "may seek advice" on them from the BBC's legal team. The NSS has asked the BBC to explain its rationale for including this line and how it will be interpreted.
NSS spokesperson Chris Sloggett said the BBC had made "a couple of small steps in the right direction".
"The BBC has questioned how carefully it needs to tread around religion and made some minor alterations which will help to prevent unnecessary bureaucracy from hindering free expression.
"But its approach is still too deferential to religion in several places. It's particularly disappointing that such a premium is placed on depictions of Muhammad. The national broadcaster shouldn't be treating religion as a special case or helping to uphold blasphemy taboos.
"The new line on blasphemy laws around the world is puzzling and open to some alarming interpretations, so we've written to the BBC again to ask for clarification."
Elsewhere a requirement not to cause "unnecessary offence" to "vulnerable groups" has been replaced by a requirement to avoid causing "unjustifiable offence".
The NSS also said guidelines on impartiality and the promotion of "religious views by stealth" were inconsistent with the exclusive Thought for the Day on Radio 4 or Pause for Thought on BBC Radio 2. The BBC did not change its guidelines in response.

Christian doctor refuses to address trans patients by their preferred pronouns

A Christian doctor is taking the Government to court, claiming he was sacked for refusing to call transgender patients by their chosen sex. Dr David Mackereth, 56, says he lost his job while carrying out assessments for the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) last June, because he believed using transgendered pronouns were against his conscience as a doctor and a Christian. In response, the DWP declared that failing to accommodate clients’ preferences would amount to ‘harassment’ under the Equality Act. Dr Mackereth, a Reformed Baptist who had been an A&E doctor for 26 years in the NHS, was dismissed from his role as a ‘Health and Disability Assessor.

I would think so too, but who knows. I could ask I guess.
