    ‘Greek Minister of Justice Costas Tsiaras announced on Tuesday that the government is now withdrawing its decision to reintroduce the criminalization of blasphemy in Greece.

    Following a public outcry and a massive wave of ridicule across social media, the Greek government made a major U-turn from its declared intention to once again make blasphemy a criminal offense in Greece.’

    Congratulations Greece for letting justice and good sense prevail.
