Irish atheists challenge idiotic blasphemy law


The Irish government recently enacted a new law which makes statements of what it deems blasphemy punishable by a fine of up to 25,000 pounds (about $50,000). Atheist Ireland isn’t about to take this nonsense lying down, and have published 25 blasphemous statements on their website. They’ve also stated that “medieval religious laws have no place in a modern secular republic, where the criminal law should protect people and not ideas.” I couldn’t agree more.
