Diversiteit en Tolerantie in Ierland

Als jij mijn favoriete sprookjesfiguur beledigt?

Dan bel ik de politie.

The Guardian: Stephen Fry investigated by Irish police for alleged blasphemy.

Ierland is lid van de EU.

Een vreselijk modern, tolerant, divers en progressief land.


Ierland is een theocratie.

Abortus is verboden.

En ik gok dat men niet bepaald dol is op homoseksuelen.

While being interviewed on The Meaning of Life TV programme, Fry was asked what he would say to God if he had a chance. “How dare you create a world in which there is such misery,” Fry replied. “It’s not our fault? It’s not right. It’s utterly, utterly evil. Why should I respect a capricious, mean-minded, stupid god who creates a world which is so full of injustice and pain?”

God bestaat niet.

Fry said if he met the Greek gods he would accept them quicker because, “they didn’t present themselves as being all seeing, all wise, all beneficent”. “Because the god who created this universe, if it was created by God, is quite clearly a maniac, an utter maniac, totally selfish. We have to spend our lives on our knees thanking him. What kind of god would do that?”

Een God die verzonnen is door gekken, natuurlijk!

Wat doet Ierland precies in de EU?

Buiten huilen over #Brexit?
