I heard it some days ago in the radio, and apparently it is not an April 1st joke with three months of advance: Ireland has approved a law banning blasphemy.
I have no words to express my surprise. In the second decade of this millenium, and in a civilized country such as Ireland, one would expect full freedom of expression, including blasphemy for those who feel in the mood. A law banning it seems out of place like a law enforcing to attend religious events. But obviously I was wrong, and maybe we are not in 2010, or maybe what I considered a civilized world is not so civilized, after all. Now I wonder when the Inquisition will be implemented again.
Richard Dawkins surely has something nice to say about this.
