Govt wanting a YES is very suspicious and one has already come out saying they are replacing it with hatespeech.Surely it's the Koran that should be banned it's full of hate.This is the trouble with Islam it wants to rule it wants to govern and lots of unelected Muslims from various commuters,councils,etc. start moaning,they are unelected.If Allah is so all powerful why do its followers need laws to stop them being offended.No modern country needs blasphemy laws it's medieval nonsense.If god is all powerful,all knowing,then god doesn't need protecting and God's followers needn't worry either.So what if they are offended if the blasphemers are that bad then the almighty god will punish them.When the religious can prove anything they believe then let them make the laws but of course they can't.
That in itself would cause me to vote NO
On other hand, what is stopping them putting in "hatespeech" laws anyway?
And keeping it is all about defending islam from criticism and ridicule.
and then again, the state would not get rid of something if it meant Irish could attack islam - so that is another reason why No might be right....????
