https://www.bchumanist.ca/canada_repeals_blasphemy_law

Now that the Canadian Senate has also passed Bill C-51, all it will take is it being signed off by the Governor-General and it becomes the law. I AM surprised at the number of votes to keep it, and worse, the abstentions. What is the matter with those people?

It amazes me that Western Nations still have blasphemy laws, including a number of the US States. Religion, like any other idea, philosophy or political view deserves no respect or need to be honored. People deserve respect, not ideas. The sooner blasphemy laws are eliminated, the better.

Supposedly it does cost money to revoke an existing law which is why there are still laws on the books that refer to horses in towns and c8ties. Until something comes up it is a necessary use of human resources and such to revoke outdated and ignored laws.

Having said that I want aware that blasphemy was illegal here. I did know, from This Is The Law, growing moss on your roof was illegal in Edmonton and kissing in public on a Sunday illegal in PEI.

Good for them. That's one less Red nation on the map. The rest are (surprise ) Muslim nations.

We only got rid of ours in Ireland a few weeks ago. New Zealand while laughing at ours actually discovered they had one of their own. So I believe they got rid of - are are getting rid of it there too.

Progress is progress - no matter how small!

Seems the next step in Ireland - the next referendum - is to get rid of the utterly ridiculous catholic state inspired concept of making people wait years between applying for a divorce and actually being allowed have one. 4 year I think it is - if memory serves.

I think every country still has silly laws on the books. You can Google a lot of them. Some are very strange indeed.

No, only real witches can. You cannot pretend to be a witch.

Freedom of religion does not apply only to Christians in Canada. However Christians are allowed to charge money and manipulate people with no justice .....

Here in KY, we still have people being charged with Sodomy! So its pretty clear where my state stands on this issue.


You would think they would at least try to change the name of the crime!!

No.

You don't.

Kentucky anti-sodomy laws as applied to same-sex sexual activity were struck down in 1992 by the Kentucky Supreme Court as being in violation of the state constitution (as applied to opposite sex sexual activity were legislatively repealed decades earlier). And the United States Supreme Court ruled all such laws in any jurisdiction to be in violation of the United States Constitution in Lawrence v. Texas (2003). Te only 'sodomy' law that remain applicable are those involving a lack of consent, wherein the issue isn't sodomy but the lack of consent. And if that's what you're talking about, then it has absolutely zero relevance to this discussion.
