seems a lot of them don't want to have to swear on the Bible, when taking office....... or recognize a higher authority, especially the humanists, atheists, & non believers.
Why the phuck would an atheist swear on the bible?

Yet one in three who voted wanted to retain a ban on “blasphemy”
When it's a binary choice between "Yes" and "No", the result is rarely unanimous.
Some people always vote against what they perceive to be mainstream sentiment.

If we had a vote on the abolition of gravity, at least 10% would probably vote for it.

O’Gorman added that the government "must still ensure" that religions are protected from forms of discrimination.

"This referendum outcome does not make people's freedom of religion or belief less protected," he said.
"The Government must still ensure that everyone can manifest and practice their religion without discrimination or threat.

"We also need to have robust prohibition of inciting hatred on religious and other grounds, in law and practice."

Says dick face.

Here comes hate crime. Any depiction of the worlds best know paedophile in a negative sense will be seen as inciting hatred on religious grounds. The muzzies in Ireland were said to to oppose the removal, a false flag in my opinion to sway voters to vote for its removal on the grounds that the muzzies opposed it.
You read this and realise that the ECHR couldn't care less about the decision the Irish electorate made.

well they don't, they can cross their fingers. Some positions in Office, require swearing on the Bible, many Constitutions around the World, (not just Ireland's), recognize a higher authority 'God', (Not that US Presidents respect it). The point being, Atheists, Marxists, Liberals, LGBT, Trans, Communists etc, demand All the 'tolerance', that they want shoved down the Irish people Throats, but have Zero tolerance themselves.

Relax, they all want religion removed from the Constitution, it would be replaced with Globalism, +EU Communism.
While they're ranting on about 'Tolerance', they show none.

It was one on three. That makes it a mainstream not extreme opinion.

Ireland is scary.

The EHCR merely upheld Austria's own stupid law.
Just as they would have upheld our stupid blasphemy law if we had retained it.
Now they can't because we sensibly got rid of it.

I'm an atheist. I DON'T want EU rule or globalism.
I believe one counter example is sufficient to prove a theory false yes? :p
