desecration of holy texts

The Folketing (Danish Parliament) on 07-12-2023 passed a new legislation outlawing desecration of any holy text in the country. The law was adopted in a 94-77 vote, with eight lawmakers absent.

The new legislation will criminalise “inappropriate treatment, publicly or with the intention of dissemination in a wider circle, a writing with significant religious significance for a religious community or an object that appears as such.”

Works of art where “a minor part” includes a desecration, but is part of a larger artistic production, isn’t covered by the law so far.

The new law will be enacted when Denmark’s figurehead monarch, Queen Margrethe will formally sign the legislation.
