Amnesty and ICCL call for Yes vote in blasphemy referendum
‘Criminalising blasphemy has no place in a modern democracy such as ours’
Amnesty and the Irish Council for Civil Liberties have issued a joint appeal for a ‘Yes’ vote in the blasphemy referendum. And Catholic theologian and lecturer in bioethics Gina Menzies has joined the call for a ‘Yes’ on Friday.
At a press conference in Dublin on Monday, Ms Menzies said the blasphemy clause in the Constitution “doesn’t protect freedom of religion and belief, in fact it undermines it”.
