Very good news! There is absolutely no reason to keep this stupid law on the books!
During the debate, Dr Harris described the laws as "ancient, discriminatory, unnecessary, illiberal and non-human rights compliant". He said the last conviction under the law was 1979. "So it's not needed any more, old-fashioned, ancient and out of time," he said. "The Almighty does not really need the protection of these ridiculous laws and that's why large numbers of people of a religious perspective share the view that these offences need to be abolished," he said.
Its director, Nicholas Hytner, told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "What we have now is essentially a secular country based on a common bond of decency which includes free speech.
"And free speech includes the expectation that there should be mutual respect between those with different beliefs. "And I don't believe that the law should address what people believe. The blasphemy laws protect belief; they don't protect people."
and finally for Don Horrocks, of the Evangelical Alliance, agreed that there was "no real argument" for retaining the law, saying: "Everybody knows it's not really going to be used again." But he warned that changing the legislation could "send out a signal" that "gratuitous abuse and offence" is acceptable.
Yes, it is acceptable, and if you dont like it, follow what Jesus said, turn the other cheek or ear in this case :), complain by all means, but agree to freedom of speech! :)
All this to be taken with a grain of piquant salt!!!
