Time and again it comes down to different perspectives and a break down in human empathy e.g. I am an atheist with a fundamental hatred of all religion and therefore I will take the piss out of any religious figures and any superstitious idiot who doesn't like it can go to hell.

However if someone were to wipe their bottom with my Flag or play La Marseillaise backwards over a dope beat then they should rightly be arrested and fined or thrown in prison (its a crime to insult the French national anthem or flag, punishable by a fine of upto 7,500 and 6 months in jail).

So an abstract notion of nationalism is sacred, but not something equally tangible and important to an individual as their religious and cultural identity??
FWIW, I think nationalism is just as moronic as religion.
