A referendum to repeal the Blasphemy Law is to be held here in Ireland in October. My opinion is that it will be an overwhelming Yes to repeal. Ireland is getting more secular every day. And about time too.
I wish you and all your people the best. My family hails from Mayo county. I am proud of my predominantly Irish heritage because of the strength of the people through the centuries. That strength isn’t defined by any faith. However, I have faith that the strong, independent people of Ireland will do what’s right for fellow human beings
It's a real joy to see Ireland bit by bit throw off the influence of the Catholic Church. It's taken longer than many other countries of Europe but better late than never perhaps you can show that other priest riddled country Poland how its done. Long live a free and liberal Ireland.
Considering what the Catholic Church has done to the Irish people, it's no surprise you're moving at last to a more secular society and government. It's extraordinary that any modern nation has something as ridiculous as a blasphemy law on its books. Good luck!
