London: The Irish police has dropped the blasphemy case against actor-comic Stephen Fry after they found that there was no injured party. The 59-year-old actor was being investigated by the Irish police, known as the Garda, after a viewer filed a complaint against him for uttering “anti-God remarks” on a show that aired on Ireland’s state broadcaster, RTE in 2015, reported

Fry had appeared on a TV show titled, The Meaning of Life, which was hosted by Gay Byrne. The Alice: Through The Looking Glass actor had been asked what he might say to God at the gates of heaven. In his inimitable style, Fry replied, “I’d say, bone cancer in children? What’s that about?”

He said, “How dare you? How dare you create a world to which there is such misery that is not our fault? It’s not right, it’s utterly, utterly evil... Why should I respect a capricious, mean-minded, stupid god who creates a world that is so full of injustice and pain?”
