Blasphemy a criminal offence in Ireland.

#1
Lurked for a while on these forums for a while, thought I'd make my first post as noone else seems to have picked up on this/give a toss.

Seems like Ireland has actually made blaspheming a criminal offence, pretty big step backwards if you ask me, witch hunts next?

Actually thought it was a hoax at first but the guardian have a piece here

And the meat of the legislation can be found in this article.

Thingy will be along shortly for indepth and reasoned theological debate.
Me? "Straight to hell, Oh papa san..." as the Clash would have it. :twisted:
