Atheist group will test Ireland's blasphemy law
Catholic World News - January 04, 2010
An organization of Irish atheists plans a court test of a prohibition against blasphemy that took effect on January 1. The group Atheist Ireland, has published a series of 25 quotations that it describes as blasphemous, challenging prosecutors to enforce the new ban. The atheists’ group says that the law is “dangerous because it incentives religious outrage.”
