Referendum to expunge Blasphemy from the constitution – Common sense at last.

On January 4th this year, I warned of the danger of the new Blasphemy section in the Defamation Act and said that it should be dropped by referendum at the earliest opportunity. I am glad to say that Mr Dermot Ahern TD, Minister for Justice, who brought this law in, seems to agree as he now says that the government will bring this forward at the next Constitutional Referendum when Children’s rights will also be dealt with.

Common sense at last, thank God almighty – Common sense at last!
