Good news from Ireland

The blasphemy investigation against Stephen Fry has been dropped:

An Irish police investigation into allegedly blasphemous comments made by Stephen Fry has been dropped after detectives decided there were not enough people who had been outraged by the remarks.


After initial inquiries, officers decided that not enough people had been outraged by Mr Fry's remarks to warrant further investigation, according to the Irish Independent.

A source told the paper: "This man was simply a witness and not an injured party. GardaĆ­ (Irish police) were unable to find a substantial number of outraged people.

"For this reason the investigation has been concluded."

So much for that. But it could happen again, here as well as there. The sooner countries repeal their blasphemy laws, the better.
