TERRORISTS GOOD – GAYS BAD?

It’s a strange dichotomy. Gays can’t get up the aisle but Provos can get into Stormont!

The Democratic Unionist Party has blocked a bid to legislate in favour of same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland. The DUP has tabled a petition of concern on an assembly motion due to be debated on Tuesday. The motion proposes that Stormont introduce legislation similar to other jurisdictions in Britain and Ireland. Under the assembly’s voting rules a petition of concern effectively blocks any measure unless it can attract majority cross-community support. Earlier on Monday, Catholic bishops in Northern Ireland released an open letter to all MLAs urging them to reject the same-sex marriage motion. The letter said the motion undermines the principle of equality by applying it

As readers know, I oppose Gay Marriage (let’s dismiss the contrived “equal marriage” label) on the grounds it threatens liberty. but then again so does the IRA in Government and neither the DUP nor Catholic Bishops seem to have a problem with that!!!

  1. You find liberty to be a threat to liberty. Interesting.

  2. Hilarious stuff from David and the DUP.

    They both loudly proclaim how ‘British’ they are, with ‘British’ values etc., but now, on two occasions (the Flegs issue and Gay Marriage), Sinn Féin have argued that they want policy to be in line with the rest of the UK, and Unionists say no!?

    You should follow Scotland’s lead, and vote to leave the Union. Not into a United Ireland, just into a separate nation from Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales. You could have all your own laws. Your flag could hang from every lamppost; you could ban whoever you liked from marrying; you could ban ordinary, decent people from giving blood, purely because of their sexual orientation; you could elect politicians who believe the world is only 6000 years old…hang on…
