Faith 'n' Begorrah!

9:40 AM -- Planning a trip to The Emerald Isle? Mind your bloody tongue. CBC News reports:

  • If you visit Ireland after October, you'd better watch what you say about God.

    A blasphemous slip of the tongue could cost you 25,000 euros under revamped legislation that will soon be signed into law...

    Lorraine Weinrib, a law professor at the University of Toronto, says the bill is a modern update of blasphemy laws...

    "Unlike the old blasphemy laws which only protected the dominant religion [Roman Catholicism]… this one seems to protect all religions, so it kind of has a modern equality bent to it," Weinrib adds.

Ah yes, very modern. Equal opportunity theocracy.
