“People have redefined what marriage means to them. Marriage is more popular than ever – which is unusual – you might think that with, perhaps, the demise, a little, of the Catholic Church and people turning towards a more secular society that that wouldn’t be so, but actually people are still looking for that commitment and we do marriage very well in Ireland!”

Pro-same sex marriage group Vote With Us offering voters a “chance to find and share reasons to vote yes in the upcoming referendum on marriage equality”.
Eoin Wison (not the actor) writes:
Vote With Us is an exciting new campaign for the yes and undecided voters. Referendum campaigns are often held hostage by the same commentators, playing out the debate out of reach of everyday people. We hope this campaign will hand the conversation back to Irish voters and allow them to positively engage others in a respectful and hopeful way, up and down the country
In 2015, the Irish people will be asked to vote on the issue of same sex marriage. The good people at The Pharisee Institute would like you to consider your options very carefully.
