Ireland’s Blasphemy Law

Posted by Realist on January 3, 2010 – 3:00 pm

Don’t you just love the accent?

Now in Ireland, insult a Christian, pay a fine of 25,000 Euros. While many legal authorities claim the new Irish law is written so narrowly that it is unlikely anyone will ever be prosecuted, please remember that, based on charges of blasphemy, Monty Python’s Life of Brian was banned in the Republic of Ireland for eight years.

The new law is meant to protect fragile religious ideas from the big bad wolves of free thought and free speech.

    And they say that IRAN is a theocratic totalitarian dictatorship! What the fuck is THIS shit?!?!?!

    Pierce Brosnan did a good film a few years back, I can't remember the name now, but it's about an Irish man in the late '40s to early '50s who had to fight Irish law AND the Roman Catholic Church (is that redundant?) in order to keep his own children after their mother died. And he WON, is the amazing part. The fucking priests and nuns told him that HE wasn't fit to raise his own children on his own, as they'd been doing for CENTURIES, and finally, one man stood up to the fucks.

    Also reminds me of a great & tragic film called "The Magdalene Sisters," where young girls who'd "acted up" (listened to rock music, gotten laid, had babies out of almighty wedlock, refused to marry their arranged spouses, rebelled against their parents, etc.) were incarcerated in these nunneries or prisons or whatever you wanna call 'em, and while in there, were raped, beaten, and otherwise abused by all of those freaks. In Ireland, of course. Their children taken from them and adopted-out to families who were told that the mothers had "died."

    How can so many people bow before such a regime of ignorance, discrimination and recidivism? And can we send "OUR" bibul-bangers over there to share the cult nihilism with them?

    I thought of watching Life of Brian a week or so ago. I think that is what I'll watch tonight or tomorrow night!

    Yeahhh, but as funny as it is, one of THE most brilliant sight-gags ever done, to have all those idiots up there crucified, singing "Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life…", it still irks the shit out of me, 'cause there they are, accepting the status quo and, despite their many swats at the RCC *and* the Anglicans, following along in the same ol' "believe in the invisible sky-fairies and it'll all somehow turn out alright" bullshit self-hypnotism CULT.

    They were soooooooo fucking CLOSE, and missed it by THATMUCH.

    *sigh*

    They coulda usurped the entire power/cult/hegemony paradigm, and instead we get, "Life's a piece of shit, when you look at it…"

    After all, fuck, if you're gonna get BANNED, dammit, MAKE IT WORTH IT!!!!!!

    Remember when "Street-Fighting Man" was banned in the U.K. *and* the U.S.? At least THAT had some fuckin' ANARCHY in it!!!

    Y'know, before Mick became a TOTAL whore and accepted the fucking OBE or MBE or knighthood or whatever in the fuck it was. Keef was right to mock 'im to his fuckin' face, too.
