Blasphemy Now Illegal In Ireland

January 3rd, 2010

Ireland has passed a blasphemy law. The majority Green party of Ireland, under Fianna Fail, confirms the saw that greens are stop lights, too yellow to admit they’re reds. Blasphemy? Holy shit! The Dark Ages commeth.

The new law imposes a penalty of up to 25,000 Euros for publishing or uttering anything that any religion may find offensive. Pakistan is reportedly working in the United Nations for this type of law to become universal.

Of course, there is some push-back in Ireland and elsewhere. So maybe it’s just another of those silly green things that can be stomped out by enough ridicule. Or maybe it will take a few stonings or burning of heretics at the stake to turn people’s stomachs. Who knows?
