Let's challenge the new blasphemy law that denies us our fundamental human rights sign now

As of 1st January 2010 the Irish government brought into force a new blasphemy law, punishable by a fine of up to 25,000 euro.
Minister for Justice Dermot Ahern justified this irrational action by arguing that while immigration has brought a growing diversity of religious faiths to Ireland, the 1936 constitution extended the protection of beliefs only to Christians. (Guardian Online)
This new blasphemy law goes against our civil rights and denies us the gift of freedom of speech. Let's make a stand now and show our support for a secular, modern and equal republic.

    In passing this 'law', Ireland is telling the rest of the world (and religious fundamentalists in particular) that it is a good idea to put a particular religious prescription above the rights enumerated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Now t

    If the Catholic Church wishes to reduce criticism of its ways, it must deal with the years of abuse and suffering it has inflicted on the public. Creating a Blasphemy Law is counterproductive, cowardly and unacceptable.
