Blasphemy Day is tomorrow and Atheist Ireland is ready to make a move.
As you may recall, the Irish government recently passed a law making it a crime to blaspheme.
What is AI doing in response?
Atheist Ireland is seeking your help today to launch and shape a new long-term campaign with two important aims: to repeal the new Irish blasphemy law and to attain a secular Irish Constitution. Specifically, we are asking you to do three things: send us a message of support, get actively involved in shaping this project, and lobby to persuade Irish politicians to pursue these policies.
We will soon be holding public meetings around Ireland to launch this campaign. We want it to include religious and nonreligious people working together, within Ireland and with international support. The campaign has one common aim that transcends any other differences we may have: that all Irish citizens, of all beliefs and none, can live together in equality, with the State being neutral on matters of religion.
If you’re interested in learning about how you can help, check out their website. If you live in Ireland, I’ll glare at you unless you volunteer to help overturn this travesty of a law. (Yep. You’re trembling in your boots. I know it.)
Regardless of where you live, send Atheist Ireland your vote of support. Let them know you appreciate the work they’ve done and the work they’re about to embark upon.
