Stephen Fry faces Irish blasphemy probe after God comments

For the record, I'm firmly with Stephen Fry on this story. He is apparently now being investigated by Republic of Ireland police on blasphemy charges. He questioned how anyone could believe in a loving, beneficent god when there is clearly so much suffering in the world. To me, these are perfectly reasonable questions to ask, and it troubles me that anyone would still object to him asking them in this day and age. I daresay he pointed out a truth some people are still uncomfortable with - perish the thought that he'll encourage people to think for theirselves and start questioning the authority of the church.

Update: these charges have now been dropped
