How the Government Bill is flawed

To become familiar with the proposed law and its problems, please read the following articles on http://atheist.ie.

The Government is arguing that the proposed law is a step forward, but if you read the detail you will find that it is reinforcing and institutionalising the right to discriminate against atheists.

There is also a different Bill before the Dail, proposed by the Anti Austerity Alliance TDs, that addresses the problems in a way that would protect all teachers equally.

This is a rare opportunity to change an unjust law and promote equality. Please help us to do so. For further information on how to help, please email us at humanrights@atheist.ie.

    It is not necessarily bnwiog down, the Irish people were oppressed and most lost fluency in Gaelic. It takes time to regain a laguage, efforts have been made. Plus, the English spoken is its own (special)unique creation not a copy of London English
