The secret blasphemy, as far as the Puritans are concerned, is the dark secret that John keeps hidden away. He and Abigail Williams, their young maid, had been hitting the sheets. The affair has been plaguing John's conscience. Hale intended his declaration towards witchcraft but John feels it directed to himself. The dramatic irony is that Hale, at this point, does not know about John and Abigail's "play time" activities. I hope this sounds clear enough.
