Ireland Abandons Its Children
Last edited 26th May 2015

Ireland has written a social suicide note and we grieve for her. But we will not follow her. More than half the Irish have voted for homosexual marriage, seduced by celebrities to violate something they once held sacred: the life between mother, father and child. From today, the Irish Constitution assumes a mother does not matter to a baby, and a father is irrelevant to his son. That is madness.

Irish Archbishop Warns: Approval of Same-Sex Marriage will Bring Intolerance of Christians
Last edited 4th May 2015

Archbishop Eamon Martin of Armagh has warned that religious freedom will be in danger in Ireland if a referendum approving same-sex marriage succeeds. “If society adopts and imposes a new orthodoxy of ‘gender-neutral’ marriage, being defined simply as a union between any two persons-– including a man and a man, or a woman and woman-– then it will become increasingly difficult to speak or teach in public about marriage as being between a man and a woman,” the archbishop said, in a statement released through the Irish bishops’ conference.
