SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

blasphemy (noun) words or actions showing disrespect for God or religion.

Uttering unholy words about God or doing something that offends God, people's beliefs about God, or religion is blasphemy. Words abusing God or religions are blasphemous. Similarly doing anything unholy in a church or a temple is blasphemy. To use abusive language against sacred things or God is to blasphemy. It is also blasphemy to talk badly about things which people consider great or good. For example, it is blasphemy to talk badly about Abraham Lincoln to those who hold him in high esteem.

  • To the really faithful, even the denial of God is blasphemy, let alone saying offensive things about Him.
  • Galileo's discoveries and theories, in spite of being scientifically correct, were considered blasphemy by the Church, because they were contrary to the religious beliefs of the time.
