18:00 Category: LSS - Secular Hall - Public event[18:30] LSS: Gary McLelland - Blasphemy Laws in Europe
Description:
For god’s sake: How blasphemy laws are used to undermine freedom of expression Blasphemy was a crime in UK until 2008, but why is it still an offence in 17 European countries? Why do states still prosecute people for blasphemy? Our new season starts with a lecture and discussion on the important topic of blasphemy laws with Gary McLelland, new Chief Executive of the International Humanist and Ethical Union. IHEU is a global umbrella body for humanist, atheist and secularist groups. All welcome - not to be missed! Admission free - donations welcome IHEU: http://iheu.org/ @IHEU https://twitter.com/iheu
