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 equalit
y 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.
