What does it mean to blaspheme? What is blasphemy?: "Civil laws designed to prevent blasphemy have had mixed results. Scientists such as Copernicus and Galileo were charged with blasphemy for daring to posit that the earth was not the center of the universe. The Spanish Inquisition sought out blasphemers to punish. John Calvin and Martin Luther have both been accused of blasphemy and of supporting the death penalty for blasphemers. In many European countries, where religious and political leadership intermingled , blasphemy against God was equated with treason against the State."
