Stephen Fry and “blasphemy”

I saw an article this morning: “Stephen Fry investigated by Irish police for alleged blasphemy” * and thought it appropriate to draw attention to two articles I posted in 2015 after Fry had made similar rants.

Personally I ‘m opposed to blasphemy laws. God is more than capable of facing the rants and ravings of wilfully ignorant fools.

 

A little while, and the wicked will be no more;
though you look for them, they will not be found.

But the meek will inherit the land
and enjoy peace and prosperity.
The wicked plot against the righteous
and gnash their teeth at them;

but the Lord laughs at the wicked,
for he knows their day is coming.

“The Bible’s Opinion of Atheists” a recommended article from Jeff Weddle.

A few months ago Peter Fitzsimons, former Rugby star now journalist and author, included a joke in his Sunday newspaper column. From memory it went something like this:
“How do you know when there’s an atheist in the room?
Don’t worry; he’ll soon let you know.”

The atheist Fitzsimons followed the joke with the exclamation “Ouch”, as recognition of his own guilt in that area.

Part of Jeff Weddle’s recent blog post “The Bible’s Opinion of Atheists” addresses this trait of so many atheists, while giving an insightful look at what the bible says about those who deny God’s existence.

Quotes from Jeff’s article:

I’m not too troubled by atheists. They rarely keep quiet about their atheism, which shows that even though they deny God, they can’t stop thinking about Him.

The wicked guy has to continue to tell himself and others there is no God, so he can appease his guilty conscience. He can’t shut up about denying God because his conscience continually reminds him of God and this forces him to deny God’s existence.
