A blasphemy law is a law relating to blasphemy, or irreverence toward holy personages, religious artefacts, customs, or beliefs. In the past blasphemy laws protected the majority religion within a jurisdiction from irreverence but there is now a trend to repeal all blasphemy and religious offence laws.
