  1. This really is a shame and a missed opportunity. I hope that the Senator Power will maintain trying to get new equality laws in place.

    I guess that there are still too many dinosaur types who blocked this.

    The Irish only ever advance anything after the British have done it first.

    1. You really should get an education, you racist bigotry is staggering.

      Here’s a starting point for you:- http://news.yahoo.com/low-iq-conservative-beliefs-linked-prejudice-180403506.html

      Maybe now you’ll go to school…..

        Owe an insult covered up as an article, burn.

        I guess a first class Bachelor of Science or a PHD was achieved thought prejudice too.

        Now about History would you care to point to something about the Irish perhaps to counter my point. Or is it a given that you concede.

        Would it upset you to know that technically it couldn’t be racist as the Irish and English are the same race. And it’s only bigotry if I’m wrong.

        1. “Would it upset you to know that technically it couldn’t be racist as the Irish and English are the same race.”

          Since when.

          What race are they?

          Given you’re “funny” racist remarks against the French on another thread, is there any wonder you come up with this bollox.

          But by all means, amuse me. What race are they.

          You, sir, are a buffoon.

    2. You’re an imbecile.

        and a traitor too I guess. I have lived in Ireland for over 15 years.

        So I tell you first hand “The Irish only ever advance anything after the British have done it first.”

        1. “I have lived in Ireland for over 15 years.”

          I’m sure they were delighted to see you leave.

          Joss got it right first time.

        2. 15 years living here and yet you still haven’t a clue what you’re talking about.

          One example: Ireland introduced protection in the form of The Employment Equality Acts 1998 and 2004 and The Equal Status Acts 2000 to 2004. The British Equality Act (Sexual Orientation) Regulations outlawing discrimination in the provision of goods, facilities, services, education and public functions on the grounds of sexual orientation, by the Equality Act happened in 2006.

          To quote Joss, you are an imbecile. Hardly a surprise from a racist, eh? Well done on proving the validity of Paul’s link above.

  3. Well done to the Irish government for standing up against christophobia.

    I would advise the LGBT community to take the advise of Peter Tatchell…

    ‘If you don’t want to be ‘discriminated’ against in a religious institution, then don’t work there!’

      If you’re homophobic, then don’t go on an LGB news site!

      1. And if you transphobic, then don’t go on an LGBT news site!

  4. Lumi Bast 3 May 2012, 6:18pm

    Pathetic. I don’t see why people would be in favor of discrimination of LGB people :/.

    1. But it’s open season for Trans folk right?

  5. It will never change there!

    1. Of course it will, don’t talk nonsense.

  6. I don’t get it. “It is unfortunate that the Bill was voted down by the Government.” So where was it voted down, in the Senate or in the Govt?
