Irish gay marriage referendum: ‘No’ campaigners concede defeat

Gay rights groups hailed victory in Ireland’s referendum on same-sex marriage on Saturday after “No” campaigners effectively conceded defeat in the historic vote.

“Everyone seems to be predicting a ‘yes’ … and that seems to be the case at the moment. It’s disappointing,” said John Murray from Catholic think tank the Iona Institute, which spearheaded the “No” campaign.

Final results are not expected until later in the day in the poll, which could make Ireland the first country to adopt same-sex marriage via a popular vote.

    They too can look forward to a gay leader and pedophiles in high office.

    Which is why, in addition to banning any further immigration by moslems, we should turn the Irish, Scots an English away too! They will smuggle their stupidity in with them just as the vibrants do.
    Dear God – I am not a religious man but when I see perversion and degeneracy marketed as freedoms and rights, the only explanation that seems to fit is that it is the work of the devil. What in hell is wrong with these idiots?

    Gee. I just read a second report on this and both are talking about a landslide vote without giving any indication of what the official count (even just “so far”) is. That really annoys me.

    Gay marriage increases the argument of Islo-polygamists that their system of multi-wifing should be accepted as a lawful arrangement.

    The history of western nations shows an aversion to polygamy. E.g., the 1856 Republican platform called slavey and polygamy “twin relics of barbarism.” Utah was denied statehood for decades because of polygamy and was only accepted after it had been outlawed in the state constitution.

      That’s why they have been totally silent on the issue. Once marriage is redefined, polygamy, polyamory, consensual incest etc etc etc are all the next steps. In fact, we’ve already seen one instance of three gay men getting married (can’t remember what country – somewhere in Asia/Indo-Asia).

      The same arguments the gays have used are the natural (by logical extension) arguments of all these other perversions. i.e. If it is heartless & judgemental to disagree with two same sex people getting “married”, why stop at two? Why stop at a father and daughter getting married? Aren’t they saying “love is love” & “who are you to judge”.

      There is no end to what will come of this.

    The Irish are being frog-marched into accepting gay ‘marriage’ because they arfaid of looking backward in the yes of the rest of Europe. Gay marriage is the latest ‘to-do’ thing when you want to appear with it and up to speed on your decadence.

    Look out Christian Bakers. It looks like they soon will be required to bake wedding cakes for gay couples. But not the Muslim ones since it would offend them!
