The Null Device

A BBC announcer may be prosecuted for blasphemous libel after reading out a poem about a centurion's homoerotic lust for Jesus. The author of the poem already was sentenced to nine months with hard labour for blasphemy upon its publication in 1976; the sentence was suspended. Britain's blasphemy laws, which apply only to blasphemy against Christianity, were introduced in the seven teenth century, when ques-tioning the existence of the state religion was akin to treason. They have remained unamended ever since.
