The Mid-west Humanists are co-sponsoring a public meeting with Atheist Ireland in an effort to stop the government from reviving a medieval crime and curtailing our freedom of expression. The Humanist Association of Ireland is currently running a campaign for Equality for the non-Religious. This is a wide-ranging campaign, covering the constitution, legislation and state practices. While blasphemy is only a small part of the campaign it is an excellent illustration of why we need a secular constitution and to face up to that need and not be looking for “an Irish solution to an Irish problem” which is what the government seems to be doing. Anyone who shares our aims should come along and have their say. Speakers will include Michael Nugent, Chair of Atheist Ireland. Local politicians will also be invited.
