Congratulations to the people of Ireland for voting to end discrimination and make marriage equality the law of the land. While I don't agree that civil rights should be put to popular vote, the 2-1 vote shows that Ireland is ahead of the curve.
Some people argue that traditional marriage is between a man and a woman. Well, traditions change. It also used to be considered a sin to marry outside your own faith, but that tradition has changed as well.
Opponents say it's immoral, but isn't the real immorality denying others the right and dignity to marry who they love just because you don't agree with it?
Never miss a local story.
