New Humanist Blog: Blasphemy law passed in Ireland
The DÃ¡il has just voted to make “blasphemous libel” a crime which carries a fine of up to €25,000, as part of the new Defamation Act.
Causing “outrage” will be a criminal offence.
It’s not that long since we scrapped the blasphemy law this side of the Irish Sea.
Wonder what would happen if Ireland’s freethinkers blasphemed en masse?
