Irish Times, April 23, 1993

‘Children taught in school that homosexuality is a normal variant like left handedness.’

‘Employees compelled to employ militant gays…’

“The human rectum is designed to expel waste…”

The extreme case against the decriminlisation of homosexuality in Ireland made by Joseph McCarroll, then head of Family Solidarity and later Families Against Divorce.

Wonder what he’s up to?

Perhaps with the benefit of hindsigh –

“Inserting into the Constitution an Amendment purporting to create a right of persons of the same sex to marry puts in place a legal rationalisation at the highest level that makes it more likely that Courts would argue and conclude that such couples have a right to an opportunity to “have children” using IVF, thereby making more difficult and less likely to succeed, moves to have IVF practices involving violations of unborn human embryos’ rights to life and to uninterrupted human development vindicated in Irish courts.”

Joseph McCarroll, Vice chairman Pro-Life Campaign,  May 2015.

Oh.

    “The human rectum is designed to expel waste…”

    Correct. But that doesn’t mean that is its only use.

      Pulp Fiction springs to mind…

      “Five long years, he wore this watch up his ass. Then when he died of dysentery, he gave me the watch. I hid this uncomfortable piece of metal up my ass for two years. “

      Or that this is the only orifice commonly used by people who campaign, for this function, sadly.

    Man with extreme views still has extreme views…..hold the front page!

    Incidentally, the human mouth is designed to ingest food and … well… I’ve said too much already :)

    Man with extreme view is still a central part of the Conservative Catholic political movement in Ireland, directly involved in the Pro-Life movement, connected to Youth Defence, theliberal.ie etc etc. He is a pillar of the groupings advocating a No vote on SSM ref, not some outlier no one listens to..

      lovely. You’ve mentioned thelib***l.ie which is one of the most partisan websites i’ve ever seen.

      I mean, BS here is rather partisan as well, but that’s par for the course. That OTHER website has a name that deliberately misleads. It’s libertarian *perhaps* but that’s about it.

    I am pretty sure the other No ‘angels’ didn’t just fly in from Heaven in the past few weeks either.
