Did you know National’s Minister of Injustice Amy Adams’s new Harmful Digital Communications Act, “intended to stop cyber-bullying, could have the effect of landing a person in jail for two years for committing blasphemy...”
The Act stated digital communications "should not denigrate an individual by reason of his or her colour, race, ethnic or national origins, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or disability."
[Mark Honeychurch, the the New Zealand Humanist Society's president,] said the law would effectively impose some of the world's strictest penalties - including fines of up to $50,000 – [or two years in jail] -- on people found guilty of blaspheming, or insulting religion…
Mr Honeychurch called the law a "great step backwards from being a progressive society."
Mr Honeychurch is right.
And Amy Adams is an idiot.
