Congress still trying to pass blasphemy law

In Pakistan it is punishable by death to burn a Koran. Most Americans would agree that this law is wrong and a violation of free speech.

Some members of the US Congress (and nearly every state legislature), on the other hand, apparently disagree only with the punishment, but not the prohibition, since the House will soon be voting for a seventh time on passing an anti-flag burning amendement.
