Extremely Dangerous

Ireland has enacted anti blasphemy laws as of 1st January which make it an offense to blaspheme.

I find this an extremely dangerous law.

Whilst religious discrimination should always be outlawed, blaspheming is a religious issue and NOT a legal issue.

Authors such as Dawkins and his book the God Delusion are considered blasphemous.

Whilst Ireland's Gay and Lesbian Rights equality has certainly moved forward over the last few years, legally outlawing the right of someone to question religious beliefs is a seriously warped law, especially in a so called secular country.

Under the letter of the law a person saying that God does not exist is blaspheming.

Whether you do or do not believe in God is a personal choice and this law is a dangerous law indeed.
