Blasphemy laws to be repealed in Spain.

Another step in the right direction of removing all religious privilege from society. Excellent news. Blasphemy is made a crime by wankers who think their 'gods' so puny that they need protecting from 'butt hurt'.

Let the erosion continue until all religions everywhere are seen for what they are myths.


Blasphemy laws to be repealed in Spain.

Quote
Spain has moved closer to bolstering freedom of expression for its people after the Parliament of Spain passed an initial vote on removing blasphemy from the Spanish civil code.

Spain’s Congress of Deputies voted 180 to 166 in favour of abolishing penalising ‘offences to religious sentiments’.

The move comes after Humanists UK last month organised an open group letter from famous names in British film, television, and music to the Prime Minister of Spain, which urged him to repeal Spain’s unjust and archaic blasphemy law as part of the End Blasphemy Laws campaign.

Raise your glasses to the Spanish legislators who appear to have arrived in the 21st century.
