Main topics in the news these days are the lisbon treaty and the economy. The outrage over the ryan report seems to have died down and almost disappeared.

I don't believe the insert to the Defamation Bill represents an agreed-upon government position. The Justice Minister appears to have thrown it in without asking anyone, and two cabinet members have already refused to support it. Including, of course, our former future Taoiseach, who as you say did sterling work in Durban.


I tend to agree, and from what i have been reading in various papers about the issue there dose not seem to be a lot of support for a blasphemy law coming from anywhere. Personally i would be surprised if this made it into law.

Or am i just being naive?

Religion is constantly reinforced by the group thing. Is playing fantasy games a solitary pursuit?


Most computer based games are pretty solitary, except for the web based ones like WoW, the original pen and paper D&D was a group thing
