Free Speech Illegal in Ireland.

Happy New Year! Unless you're an atheist in Ireland.

As of Jan 1, there is a 25,000 Euro fine if one "publishes or utters matter that is grossly abusive or insulting in relation to matters held sacred by any religion, thereby causing outrage among a substantial number of the adherents of that religion."

Now, evidently some people have the right not to be outraged or offended.

Personally, I get offended when told that Jesus died for my sins. The implication is that I have done something worthy of the death penalty and someone else (long ago?) paid the price. I am not OK with that. I take responsibilty for my own actions, thank you. I have done nothing that anyone should have to die for. Death is bad, mmKay?

Someone shouting about how Jesus saves is exercising freedom of speech and religious expression, but someone with the audacity to say that gods are fake is 'intolerant' and 'offensive.'

God is fake. No apologies. Blashpemy, as they say, is a victimless crime.

Think Well,

FACT: we ALL will croak at some point in our lifelong demise, thus, our indelible spirit rises-up to meet our Maker - absolutely nuthin we can do bout that: our soul wants to be loved, nourished, enveloped, return-to-her-maker-thing. Jesus doesn't have a sign outside of Heaven saying, 'Those who don't believe? C’est la guerre. C'mon in. Guess I wasn’t as forthright as Marvel Comix'. Be on the pro-LIFE-eration side, don't be on the side which'll swiftly LET/LEAD you down. I’m a small 'peAce-de-resistance' of a Larger Picture: give your soul that final chance. Repent and believe. God bless you with discernment.

Hmmm. Why haven't you deleted our post? Over a year now. Nevertheless, YOU shall croak. Absolutely no question. Then, when your body is decomposing in the grave, your indelible soul rises-up to meet the Maker of YOU. Absolutely no question. Jesus decides based on YOUR finite existence whether YOU should come to Heaven or not. Never fear - precisely why we created {theeyebeam}. Lemme give you a taste of Utopia; NOW that you're aware of that axiomatic fact, lemme give you a fantastic reality: FOUR!! blogs which tell of the exxxcitement of Heaven; we ROTE {theeyebeam} to show a true story about sex in Heaven after we croak. C'mon, people. The Liar's a deceiver: ain't no sex in Hell, yet, puh-lenty of sex Upstairs for eternity. God bless you. Meet me Upstairs.
