    WTF? When did Ireland turn 180 degrees and march back into the past? Who stands to profit from this?

    The old 'reasonable person' shtick -- who actually decides? Some demented magistrate or a jury, at least?

    it has nothing to do with God my friend, not the slightest iota of a semblance of an ants hair. i think that the question that Bosse posed is really the thing we should be asking, who is to benefit from this? i cannot speak for Ireland, although its but twelve miles across the water, but in Pakistan, this type of Law was fomented with the specific intent of empowering the religious leaders, who still hold considerable political sway, both in parliament and on the ground, why it has reared its head in Ireland, i would dearly love to know. That the Irish themselves, who have overcome some almost unbelievable hurdles, both religiously and politically, should regress, i do not know why.

    That changes things a bit. Instead of being introduced, a draconian, anachronistic law has been softened -- just not enough.

    I'd be interested in finding out more about what the Irish legal community is like. Are the judges relics from some forgotten realm or are they in touch with the aspirations of the people, assuming that the people, if people they are, are the sort of people who aspire, be it merely to aspire?

    they really should have a disgruntled atheist forum where one could go and salivate ones woes away until ones heart was content, where even the mention of the divine could result in a forum ban, and where absolute truth is a dirty word, lol you guys knock me out! top notch entertainment!

    God has low self-esteem and can't handle being insulted by his own creation.

    God Is Goodness itself, it is bad therefore to blasphemy, not that God can't defend Himself.

    Don't you think murder needs legal protection?

    It amazes me that so many supposedly astute adult thinkers cannot discern that preservation of civil peace seems to be the goal of the laws.

    Sure, if someone gets a bull horn and blasts through the neighberhood that your wife is a whore, it is a victimless crime. You know better.

    But if someone doesn't take kindly to it and a rioteous unrest or violent confrontation is instigated, a law may discourage such instigation.

    You may say "well these religious people certainly are weak." That may be true. However the government may have concern to keep civil order and peace in society. Should a government not offer some protection to weak people too ?

    "Don't go out of your way to aggravate religious people. Or demonstrate that education and not insult is your motive, please."
