So, if someone lying person says they are a Muslim in the presence of strangers, proceeds to blaspheme and insult the dead; you expect that to fly?
In the same case of one claiming to be a pacifist, yet he proceeds to punch, stab and shoot the strangers.
A Muslim has orders to gain knowledge.
A pacifist has orders to be nonviolence.
Why would either of them go and blaspheme in the Holy land?

So let me get this straight.... not using superlative enough rhetoric is a sign of pretending to be Muslim, and pretending to be Muslim is a crime punishable by death?

I don't care who broke what religious protocol. I care about what is just. Blasphemy is a non crime. Forcing someone, through societal pressure and threat of death, to pretend to be Muslim, then killing them when you find out, is not just. And the ludicrous standard I outlined above? Even if it were just to kill pretend Muslims, that's a stupid way to determine if someone is a non Muslim. Most people who pretend to be what they are not will exaggerate, not be half hearted, especially when their lives are on the line.

the government should never regulate theology...never under any circumstance!!! separation of church and state is one important factor that makes the west superior to the rest of the world

That's not blasphemy. It's out of protocol for any Muslim to dislike the blessed nabi of Islam.
We will question if they are even part of Islam.
All Muslims are ordered to love him because of a divine decree.
That's how fights start amongst brothers.

Only the nonmuslim will say they have no love for the first Muslims.

Yes, this is the work of man's free will, not God.

I saw a Muslim, a sincere, believing Muslim, get accused of blasphemy because...
wait for it....

He said he "liked" Muhammad instead of saying he "loved" Muhammad.

This is the same, bizarre behavior one sees in cults.

Is god so weak he must prevent insults to himself with death?

I'm sure that at least one region can be found in which blasphemy isn't punished by death therefore it is not only or always
