I fully support Stephen Fry. The so called ‘blasphemy’ crimes are a remnant from a by-gone era. We are free to believe or not to believe and we are fully entitled to have our own opinions. We can criticize whatever we want to criticize. When it comes to faith or religion that is pretty close to superstition people are entitled to their own views.
The 2009 Blasphemy Law dates back to the Inquisition when people were tortured and killed in the name of religion. Today, in the so called Western Civilization people are not usually killed but they are still being killed in other cultures namely Islam that is a murderous ideology posing as a religion.
The time is long overdue to get rid such monstrosities used to persecute, to torture and to kill innocent people around the world. Get rid of the so called 2009 Blasphemy Law that is nothing more than a mental illness, a product of sheer stupidity.
Stephen Fry is being investigated by Irish police over blasphemy claims more than two years after his outspoken comments about God on RTE's The Meaning of Life went viral.
Mr Fry described a hypothetical creator as “stupid” and an “utter maniac” for designing a world filled with undue suffering.
Asked in 2015 by the programme's host, Gay Byrne, what he would say to God if he arrived at the pearly gates of heaven, the actor and author replied: “I’d say, bone cancer in children? What’s that about?”
The committed atheist added: “How dare you? How dare you create a world to which there is such misery that is not our fault? It’s not right, it’s utterly, utterly evil.
“Why should I respect a capricious, mean-minded, stupid god who creates a world that is so full of injustice and pain?
“We have to spend our life on our knees thanking him? What kind of god would do that?
“The god who created this universe, if it was created by god, is quite clearly a maniac, an utter maniac, totally selfish.”
I agree with Stephen Fry that judged on very clear facts the so called God or Creator would be judged as “a maniac, an utter maniac, totally selfish” in “a world that is so full of injustice and pain” in which innocents are so blatantly suffering. Stephen Fry is absolutely right to challenge religion as we are duly entitled as human beings to challenge everything that we don’t agree with.
