Blasphemy Law for Repeal?

A small piece in yesterday’s Sunday Times appears to have passed the Irish media relatively unnoticed. Minister for Justice, Dermot Ahern, has claimed that he will seek a constitutional amendment to remove the requirement for a criminal law of blasphemy in Ireland.  Atheist Ireland are re-reporting a Sunday Times story quoting the Minister as saying that he will advocate that the referendum be held at the same time as the vote on the children’s rights amendment and an amendment to establish a permanent court of civil appeal. Fiona previously wrote about the law here.

    I saw someone tweet this yesterday but no press release or anything on justice.ie and couldn’t find Sunday Times report online. Hope it’s accurate though.

    I spent some time looking for the news item on the Times website and couldn’t find it. I was therefore wary about posting it, but I think I’ve made it clear that we’re re-reporting a re-reported story. I will try to get my hands on a Sunday Times this evening and see if the story is in it.
