He is a comedian, actor, television presenter, author, activist and all round polymath. Stephen Fry may also be adding a new string to his bow – as a wanted blasphemer.
According to reports , Irish police are investigating Fry, once voted the most intelligent man on TV, for insulting God. To be precise Fry accused God of being an ‘utter maniac’.
The Irish Independent claimed police launched its inquiry after comments made by Fry during an interview with the national broadcaster RTE.
A member of the public contacted the Gardai after Fry disclosed his thoughts on God in an interview first broadcast as long ago as February 2015.
