Rowan Williams: Blasphemy can provoke violence – and be a progressive force within religion

I like the way Rowan Williams (ex archbishop of Canterbury) explains ideas. Here he tackles the idea of blasphemy, challenging faith and what scares people about it.

Can blasphemy ever be a positive thing? And should we have laws based on it?
