    You can bet that Iona would be screaming and whinging about bias if a pro-marriage equality spokesperson was solely selected to speak about how things have gone in Britain.

    In the irish legal definition of marriage does it specifically say that marriage is between a man and a woman?
    No , it's between a 'comely maiden' and a Garsoon , it was DeValeras constitution afterall.

    I haven't followed this debate - but it looks like the question going to the public is confused.

    Why are gay people trying to be married - they can already have a civil partnership ?

    I'm confused - I can see this being rejected.

    I take it you are straight. Would you settle for a civil partnership?

    any thoughts on Stephen Fry's marriage to a guy 30 years younger. I like the guy but I would say it if he married a girl that age, it took me back a bit.

    A lot of people were taken aback I think, but if Britney's Vegas marriage doesn't represent straight marriages then Stephen's shouldn't represent gay ones!

    But - what do you call a union between a man and a women now.

    A bit daft - in fact, flawed logic to look for a marriage.

    Of course, a bill of additional equal rights would have been passed within the term civil partnership. But, telling people in a marriage , that they are not now in a marriage - is not going to be passed.

    Daft and confused logic.
    Missed opportunity.

    What do you mean 'telling people in a marriage they are not in a marriage'.

    This is a well orchestrated display of the anti gay marriage lobby's influence and organisation.

    she has him in the cult also, he is an IONA bigot. shows you how much she pushes her opinions on others that her son happens to share the exact same opinion. Check out his articles. He is just as bad
