God is a big poo-poo head, and smells funny too (PG-13 version for the younger readers at home). Glad I don't live in Massachusetts. I think I covered both the "blasphemy" portion, as well as the "contempt and ridicule" portion spelled out in their General Laws with that. What's sad is that is that Section 36 (Blasphemy) is only one of 155 other laws relating to "crimes against chastity, morality, decency, and good order", 24 of which have apparently already been repealed (no doubt due to rather obvious unconstitutionality). Glad we have that whole separation-of-church-and-state thing worked out.
