Hi all

The government has put forward an an amendment to the current Criminal Justice Bill abolishing the offence of blasphemy and this has been passed by the House of Lords. The rather interesting debate is reported at:

I will be discusss this development at the talk at Skeptics at the Pub on 15 April 2008.

Do let me have any thoughts.

Best wishes,

David
