A photographer is being sued for blasphemy for using a Cornish church as the backdrop to some saucy pics, according to the BBC news website.

Quite how this can be, I don’t know, since the offences of blasphemy and blasphemous libel were abolished in England and Wales last year.

But that’s what it says: “Cornwall-based photographer Andy Craddock is the subject of legal action by the priest in charge for blasphemy.”

Another case of lazy journalism? Even if this is being brought under some obscure law and isn’t, strictly speaking, called blasphemy, isn’t it up to the Beeb journo to explain it?
