Don't You Blaspheme in Here

Stephen Fry is in trouble again, and this time it's with Ireland:

Irish police are investigating supposedly blasphemous comments made by Stephen Fry on Irish television.

The Irish Independent writes that a member of public reported the actor and comedian to Ennis garda station after an airing of The Meaning of Life on RTÉ in February 2015.

In the programme, Fry said: “The god who created this universe, if it was created by god, is quite clearly a maniac, an utter maniac.”

If I could figure out how to get Ireland pissed at me, I'd probably do it. This whole thing with a "blaspheme" law has me of two minds. One, there's no corner on the market for religious insecurity and, two, the only other place you can't blaspheme is in the presence of Aretha Franklin.
