Andrew F. March (Yale University) has posted Speech and the Sacred: Is Religiously Injurious Speech a Problem for Secular Political Theory? to SSRN. From the abstract:

In this paper, I argue against the idea that religiously injurious speech represents a genuine conundrum for secular political theory, or that such speech exposes a moral “blind spot” on the part of secular political theory. I argue that many secular critics of secularism have both failed to take religion seriously enough at its most radical and have not thought enough about what secular thought should be responsible for with regard to the religious.
