"publishing or uttering matter that is grossly abusive or insulting in relation to matters sacred by any religion, thereby intentionally causing outrage among a substantial number of adherents of that religion, with some defences permitted".
They forgot the thinking.
The outrage of atheists is understandable , with heavyweights Mark Twain ( deceased) , Father Ted ( deceased) Bjork , and even the Prophet himself named by protesters amongst those whose words will be used to challenge the law in court. Rather silent , however , are the Catholics , who mistakenly foresee this as a protection of their beliefs.
This law has to do more with non Christian religions and is being rolled out throughout the 'free' World. For example , it is already enforced in the UK under the bizarrely named Employment Equality (Religion or Belief) Regulations 2003 where even belief in Climate Change is now classed as a religion and where State decides who is - or is not - a Jew. Meanwhile , outside of the 'free' World , Pakistan is also looking at the Irish legislation to see how it's paramilitary system could benefit from its introduction.
The Law , which attracts a fine for those who fall foul, doesn't apply to the Jedi Religion , as there aren't sustantial adherents to that particular faith.
So what is it about? This law has little to do with protecting the sensitivities of the devout in a once predominantly Roman Catholic country.
Is it simply another small step in eradicating the old religions through legislation in order to gradually introduce a One World Religion to lie comfortable with the New World Order?
