Description My paper presents a couple of considerations concerning religiously motivated hate-speech from the perspective of political science. My argumentation must yield to brevity due to time constraints, but I am aware that each of the problems I touch upon deserves a separate paper. In my short presentation, I will focus on the following issues: the problem of criminalising emotions, the focus on a symptom not the root of the problem, political ramifications of "hate speech" regulations involving suppression of open debate, and finally, on using speech restriction as a tool in political struggles.
