Blasphemy

Blasphemy ImageThe Humanist Association of Ireland (HAI) is part of the World Humanist Congress which earlier this year reiterated its position on freedom of thought and expression, “The Oxford Declaration”.  This Declaration largely conforms to the United Nations principles of Human Rights by stating that “All laws that criminalise language on grounds of “blasphemy” or of offence to beliefs and values impede human freedom and should be abolished.
