    I’m repeating the line in my head – ‘don’t repent, repeal the 8th’ – and I still don’t get it….

    Is it ’cause I is lapsed Catholic?

    New version…. ‘Ta fupp with that persecution complex nonsense, repeal the 8th now’

      Yeah – I don’t get the ‘repent’ thing either. Strange wording.
      Repeal the 8th I do get ;)

      Something like – “Don’t apologise – Just Repeal the 8th”

      But he was going for the subtle religious theme….you can tell by the little crosses. And that it’s on a big picture of the Turin Shroud. It’s subliminal :-)

      Don’t repent repeal! is a great little slogan, I think. (The ‘the 8th’ would be inferred once it took hold, presumably.) All the things we’ve been told are wrong by the Church, particularly anything to do with sex and reproduction, but which we no longer think of as sins that require repentance, that’s what they want for abortion.

    Poor ad campaign. While it passed, the marriage referendum suffered from becoming mired in dogma and people on both sides felt they were being preached to by both sides. The religious fervour should be set aside for the right wing extremists of hte anti-choice side.

      the Mar Ref was a no brainer that was always going to pass by a landslide and we got to be bored to death by idiots on both sides.

      Just wait untill any referendum invoving abortion happens, it’s going to be unbearable.

        I’m actually going to up the mountains and hide in a cave for a few months when/if we get a referendum on that.

    I saw that jesus poster on an ad in Tallaght. They always target the least educated, those dirty religious weasels.

      reminds be of the old joke: Why did they name the shopping centre “The Square”? A: Because the people from Tallaght couldn’t spell Pyramid.

        Because areas with high levels of social deprivation tend to have high quality schools with excellent academic records?

      “I saw that jesus poster on an ad in Tallaght.”

      Looks like their targeting of the “least educated” has worked.
