Stephen Fry Will Face Blasphemy Probe After Calling God A ‘Maniac’ – Video


Legendary British comedian Stephen Fry is reportedly under investigation for blasphemy after calling God “utterly evil” and a “maniac” during an interview with an Irish TV show in 2015.

An unidentified member of the public told the Irish Independent they had reported the outspoken atheist’s comments to authorities in western Ireland because they were doing their “civic duty by reporting a crime,” not because they were personally offended.

People who publish or speak blasphemy can face a fine of up to €25,000 under the Republic of Ireland’s Defamation Act 2009, according to the BBC.

Fry, criticized God on TV channel RTE in 2015 after being asked what he’d say to “him, her or it” if given the chance.
