What are you on about? Why on earth do I need to provide you the evidence you asked for? I never said lgbt were doing anything in Africa, Syria etc. And only a complete fool would ignore the cultural differences between Ireland and Syria and extrapolate that what I said is happening in Ireland is also happening in Syria etc.

Are you deliberately ignoring my previous post and question (again)?

I'll quote them for you, make life easier.

Chances are they were raised in some denomination of Christianity, yes. But to therefore class them as Christians and (seem to) imply that the attack was motivated by religion is nonsense.

That would be like a lad raised in a Muslim home but not necessarily a devout believer, committing a hit and run of an old lady, and the Daily Mail running a headline "Pensioner injured in Islamic hate crime".

Such a headline would be ridiculed and rightly so. But you're doing the same thing.
Sex of your child edited, and suggestion of religious implication edited so as not to offend. The rest of the post still stands and I'm interested in your response.

Again, I'm curious to know your thoughts.

So the fact they are most likely Christian means fcuk all,the real reason your anecdote happened was because of drunk scum,nothing to do with their religion.

Poster is insulted when one assumes his child is one of two genders, yet continues to assume all white males are christian in a country that has less than a 5% attendance record at Sunday mass, it's so imbecilic it's actually quite funny.

They identify as Catholic. But lucky for us they don't take the religion seriously by living in accordance with it. I'm sure there are Catholic working on alternative interpretations which accommodate gays. In time they'll claim they were never opposed to gays and discrimination against gays was never part of catholicism.

I don't mind how many people identity as Catholic. I'm more concerned with how people behave. And to be fair to catholics, they're moving in the right direction by paying less and less attention to Catholic teaching on issues like gays.
