Ireland’s gay referendum

Phew . . .

Imagine if it had been a ‘No’ vote in Ireland against equal marriage rights for same-sex couples.

It seems sad, indeed, shameful that people were asked to vote on whether gay people should have equal rights, but a referendum had to be held to modify the constitution, apparently.

In other words, the only way to give gay people equal marriage rights was to have heterosexuals and others vote on the issue.

So, now that the majority has voted in favour of same-sex marriage, should another referendum be held in Ireland on the limits of religious freedom? Should the Catholic Church and parents be barred from indoctrinating children with an antiquated superstitious belief system that says homosexuality is “immoral”?
