The Dutch are scrapping their blasphemy law on the basis that such a law is no longer relevant in the 21st Century. I am in 100% agreement with them over this.
BBC News - Dutch approve move to scrap blasphemy lawDutch authorities have decided to approve a motion abandoning a law under which it is a crime to insult God.A majority of parties in parliament said the blasphemy law was no longer relevant in the 21st Century.
The legislation, introduced in the 1930s, has not been invoked in the last half century.
Bizarrely, howeverStill more work to do perhaps?However, it still remains illegal under Dutch law to be disrespectful to police officers or to insult Queen Beatrix, the country's monarch.
What do P.ie members think of the move taken by the Dutch? Should we not be following suite by scrapping our one?
