Petition: Let’s challenge the new blasphemy law that denies us our fundamental human rights

Please click the text below to go to the petition:

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.

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.
