I am delighted that Ireland is showing signs of free thinking with regards to equality. Ironically, this is partially due to the disdain in which the once all-powerful RC church is now held as a result of the many pedophile scandals.
Yes, now is the time for the Irish to really break free of the oppresive RC church and decide to chose to legislate for equality.
Well said Sir. What an embarrasing contrast with our shadow “justice minister”.
Good to see the Republic of Ireland making some headway in equality matters.
Goes to show how many politicians and the public are moving away from the evil clutches of the RC Church.
Good luck to them.
Amazing when you think how powerful the catholic church once was. But the Irish government, like many others around the world, understands you can never have true ‘democracy’ while organised religion maintains the status of a political party. If they want power, let them stand for election like the rest of us. Oh yes. And paying some tax would be nice …..
