Richard Dawkins challenges Ireland to arrest him for blasphemy after Stephen Fry investigation

Richard Dawkins has challenged Irish police to arrest him for blasphemy after they investigated Stephen Fry for calling God “capricious, mean-minded [and] stupid”.

In an article for The Irish Times, the outspoken atheist and evolutionary biologist said he would “be available for arrest on a charge of blasphemy” as he gave a public lecture in Ireland.

“I shall be giving a public lecture in the National Concert Hall, Dublin, on June 12th, and I shall therefore be available for arrest on a charge of blasphemy,” he wrote.
