The LDS are heavily invested in Coca-Cola.
They can't drink the stuff, but they can sure sell it.
Aren't you talking about porn per view at their hotel chain?

That's what I said.
What you said is that the majority in Ireland don't favor marriage equality. And you were wildly wrong.
So the simple point you still are missing is that the corporate policies lag behind the public sentiment...often, in many different contexts.
K... to clarify, I think there is a perception that the Irish public don't necessarily favour gay marriage.
Fine, so they do, great, but doesn't mean they want to see it portrayed on TV. Like I said, there's a difference to being in favour and to being accepting and tolerant enough to want to watch it in an ad. Just my opinion, not from polls but from the straight people I know.
I got it... policies are lagging behind.
Think they should have kept the marriage scene in, what would it be, seconds, not enough to really offend, and it could mean people become more accustomed

The funny thing is when it happens you'll still be pissed off because it won't be the way you want it.

MOST People HAVE SEEN that to deny civil rights to gays and lesbians is simply bigotry, and it's costly.

using the screen name of the poster from Tyngsboro, MA isn't very nice.

I happen to consider 'wondering' from Tyngsboro, MA the original and so do many others. We may not all like him but he is part of our crowd here.

Show some respect.
