    Too soon to know for sure if they have finally given up, but I sincerely hope that they have!

    Good to see that even they’ve had to acknowledge defeat.
    It’s going to happen regardless, it in no way effects you. Get over it already. Life’s too short to spend it on hate.

  3. Well, of course they’ve shut up. Dense though “Doctor” James (her ‘qualifications’ are genuinely worthless) and this groups’ members might be, even they recognise the futility of continuing.

  4. I imagine this travesty took the wind out their sail….LOL.

  5. Perhaps they have turned their energies to doing good works such as helping the poverty stricken and the destitute? Perhaps not?

    Why doesn’t this harridan just call it a day. Nobody cares what she thinks and equal marriageis the law of the land and soon in Scotland next week. How on earth can C4M justify it’s existence? Fat chance it has of influencing the vote in Ireland too.

  7. Sound the panic alarms, man the stations, they’re voting on gay marriage! Pathetic.

    Seriously, bot my parents are teachers and if that scares them, the don’t belong in the profession.

  9. OK, I give — why would teachers be talking about marriage equality to begin with? If it’s part of the curriculum, how do their personal opinions enter into it?

    A little bit of arrogance there, no?

  10. Leave them be, let them quietly exit, don’t humiliate them into annoying us or continuing like those American groups who never give up.

    Yeah, I know. Obviously, given the parlous state of the US Christian Right when it comes to marriage equality, they’re short of imported US antigay propaganda, tactical and strategic ploys to try poisoning the public debate in Scotland. Unfortunately, even once it’s passed into law, they’ll still keep rabbitting on. Our “Family First” pressure group is still maintaining its antigay “protect marriage” website down here, and it’s almost been a year since the Marriage Equality Amendment Act was passed in our Parliament.

    She looks like she just bit into a lemon.

  14. Behind closed doors I think they are realising that they have lost the fight in relation to the ‘battle’ for same-sex marriage. And for a source within the organisation to openly admit this gives me hope that opinion is changing too.

    I would hope that the religious organisations that created and funded this organisation, do the right thing and stop wasting money donated to them to fight these battles, and instead use them for what it was intended…good causes!
