New Zealand, France, Urugay and the UK in 2013 - and there is still much more of this year to go. Would like to see Taiwan, Cuba and Ireland joint the crowd but don't know if it will happen this year.

Apparently, Ireland is going to take the route of amending their constitution. The Oireachtas will vote this summer. But I'm not sure when the vote will occur. I think it will be this year.

Ireland ... not so much. Despite the RC horrors, people are still pretty old school here.

Now, the President is visiting in the North very soon. Were he to just stop by the RoI about the time of the vote, his apostrophe might just make it a near-run. The RoI is still in the beginning stages of the process. At least here it isn't conversationally linked with a lot of unrelated issues. The RCC hasn't been able to make that link stick.

There are some truly wonderful gay people in the RoI, even in the hinterlands. Some really punky/snarky types, too, but even that is tempered by the clover in their natures.

Warm, friendly and folksy win the day here.

And the scourge of homosexual perversion continues to spread. This is indeed the worst plague in the history of mankind.

Yes, we are going to make you all turn gay so that reproduction will stop and the cephalopods can take over the world. Hail, Cthulhu, King of the Tentacled.
