A word on Gay Marriage: For as long as there have been gay people there have been those who have tried to tear down their right to get married and live happily ever after.
Is it because these anti gay people inherently oppose gay marriage or do they just think that gay people are too tall, too young and too sexually adventurous to be tied down by a institution as important as marriage.
Take that idiot Jeremy Irons for example. Back in 2013, the HuffPo asked him for his opinion on gay marriage and he spluttered out some nasty nonsense about how gay marriage shouldn’t be allowed, because it’ll lead to fathers marrying their sons for tax purposes. That is one dick-brained stupid thing to say!
Those words must have made Coleen Nolan curse Jeremy Irons’ name, because she was planning to marry Janet Street-Porter.
However, Jeremy’s no stranger to nasty talk, in fact he’s rather good at it. A few years ago he said that children under 16 are “immensely attractive” and the “hysteria” over pedophilia is ruining relationships between parents and their kids.
Words fail me.
If you’re already married, you’ll understand how badly you wanted to express your undying love for your partner with the ritual of marriage. So why should anyone refuse gay men and women the right to do the same thing. After all how can anyone even begin to assess the cost of not being married? Inestimable.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, may I mention something that’s very important to the LGBT community in Ireland. Today Ireland are having a referendum. The question being posed to the Irish people is this. Should their country allow gay marriage?
Naturally enough the Catholic Church in Ireland are against gay marriage. They say it’s a sin, unnatural, detrimental and ultimately destructive to the foundations of civilization.
I want to tell the Catholic Church that they sound like a backside full of haemorrhoids. I think religious people can be ridiculous at times, but the fact is the Catholic Church was asked for it’s opinion and they gave it. And that’s fine. They should be allowed to say whatever they like.
My problem is that every argument the church puts forward (against gay marriage) it always comes down to the same thing, “well God said no.”
I don’t see why we should be forced to obey the rules given to the Catholic Church by the voices in their heads. If kneeling down on a pew and praying to a crucifix gives them comfort and peace, that’s between them and their magic symbols. Leave the truly enlightened people out of it.
The other day I made it clear just how gay friendly I am when I said that I have gay rights coming out of my ass. As it turns out I’m not gay. However, I believe very strongly in equality for all people.
You can guess which way I think the people of Ireland should vote.
And Sean Lock, Jimmy Carr, Rich Hall, Russell Kane, Rob Beckett and Jack Dee agree. Vote YES Ireland.
