The world is a funny place. In a country that possibly ranks as one of the most religious (Christian) countries we are now seeing a turn for the better on marriage equality. It even appears to be progressing faster there than in other countries around the world.
As someone who was in a relationship with an Irishman for 12 years, I know first hand some of the prejudices and difficulties gay people in Ireland face. The fact that things have changed so much is nothing short of a miracle in my eyes. The link for today talks about how that is progressing with one of the main political parties voting to examine the issue of marriage equality. This is good and welcome news. Long may it continue!
