Didn't you reillegalize blasphemy a year ago?

Yeah, because so many people these days celebrate holidays for their original reasons, but have fun with that stick up your ass.

No, there was a curfuffle over the fact that blasphemy was still illegal in the constitution, but it hasn't been used that I know of in in my lifetime. The current goverment are aiming to abolish it, actually. The only real reason is hasn't been done before now is that all changes to the constitution have to be voted on by national referendum, which means it's a lot of trouble to go through just to change one obsolete law that noone cares about. However, if they are changing others at the same time, then they'll probably throw it in too.

Good.

I have nothing against Ireland or Irish people at all. In fact, quite the opposite. To me, though, celebrating the spread of Christianity over Europe at the time would be the equivalent of celebrating Colonel Custer, as the logic, mindset, and means was pretty much the same. Maybe not for St.Patrick's case in particular.

If it was about Ireland for Irish(I'm not certain how much of an extent you guys actually follow it, or not), or Irish heritage in America for this side of the Atlantic, I'd be fine with it. If if were about Christianity or Jesus, I wouldn't be bothered either, or if it were about a figure like Martin Luther King who was religious but used his message to expand freedom, I'd be for it, as well. But, I really have never been keen on Christianity's northern spread through Europe as I fear how much culture, and history had to be destroyed, and how pagans are treated historically like child sacrificing madmen in loin clothes. When, in reality, it's obvious a large portion of them probably weren't, and it was the Catholic regime at the time that was sponsoring the warlords that were breaking into their houses, raping their women, killing their children, and forcing them to convert. Then erasing them from history, or exaggerating their bad traits while presenting positive of their own.

Man, I am celebrating this holiday for one reason and one reason only and that's the booze. I don't know anything about the origin of the holiday and I don't even care. All i know is that tomorrow people will be hammered and I plan to be one of them.

For music, go with Dropkick Murphys of course.

Yeah, the green beer is awesome. I can't miss out on that this year. I may even go down to the city for the parade.

To be honest, Paddy's Day is basically a drinking fest in pretty much every country that celebrates it. Not exactly the most Christian celebration anymore... In ireland, I guess it's a day to be proud to be irish, not like we aren't every other day of the year :P Religion barely makes an appearance at all.

Canada's national drinking song is a must:



I can't wait for tomorrow. I haven't drank in a couple weeks in preparation.

Flogging Molly is a must for any type of St Partricks Day party.
