    Repeal the law. Religion should not be immune from criticism. I should not have to grant respect to anyone's views whether thats David Ickes latest theological opinions or the bloke carrying around a sandwich board telling us the end is Nigh or any of the more common religions.

    It does not pay to piss God off.
    Bill Maher would disagree.

    Easy for you to say from your safe remove in Germany but I'd imagine the peasants in the 31 counties to be removed might be upset at your comment.

    I will pay attention to this campaign though
    What exactly is so wrong about hate speech against a religion? I would have thought inciting hatred against believers in a religion was a no-no.

    Fat lot I care.

    Anyway Maher does not live in Ireland.

    If Irish voters remove the blasphemy clause they may incur the wrath of God on the island.

    My support for the retention of the offence is based on concern for my fellow country men and women.

    I'm in favour of removal but chances are Aodhán will want some mumbo jumbo about respecting all faiths i.e. you could be prosecuted for saying Islamism is dangerous, wrong, brutal or stuck in the dark ages. Not to mention no pics of Mo.

    Is the poll not a bit premature seeing as the wording of the amendment isn't available yet?

    Remove it, of course. Blasphemy is a victimless crime. A useless relic of the old world.
