Irish blasphemy law campaign – help out

There is a new website set up by Atheist Ireland aimed at preventing the regressive anti-blasphemy legislation proposed by Dermot Ahern.

In April 2008, the Irish Justice Minister announced a proposed new crime of blasphemy. If passed, this would revive an old crime of blasphemy that the Supreme Court had found to be unenforceable.

This website is published by Atheist Ireland as part of our campaign against this proposed new law. It includes analysis and news items about blasphemy and free speech, and examples of material that could be illegal in Ireland if the new blasphemy law is passed.

Atheist Ireland is an advocacy group that promotes reason and atheism over superstition and supernaturalism, and that campaigns for an ethical and secular Ireland where state does not support or fund or give special treatment to any religion.
