Blasphemy law abolished

Praise be!

"After an acrimonious debate in which the bogeyman of secularism was repeatedly invoked, the House of Lords on Wednesday March 5 2008 accepted the amendment to the Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill that abolishes the common law of blasphemy and blasphemous libel."

Hoo-bloody-rah! Interestingly I've seen nothing in the mainstream news about it. Can we dare hope for more legislative moves towards secularism I wonder?
