22 Dec New Ad Starts Push for Same-Sex Marriage in Ireland
As we reported a few weeks ago, the Irish Parliament is on its way to approving same-sex civil unions in Ireland. Those supporting the legislation see it as a first step on the way to legalizing same-sex marriage. The LGBT group Marriage Equality is working right now to set the groundwork for such legislation.

The ad is incredibly well made and carries a powerful emotional punch, but the logic is flawed. Anyone is free to marry at anytime without asking permission from any other citizen. The law simply stipulates that the person one marries is of the opposite sex. This distinction is made not to discriminate but to support the best interest of both children and society.
