    yay go Luxxy.

    Hope we get it soon. May be a while. Northern Ireland (Has a separate government from the rest of the UK) and the Republic will probably take a long enough time. Too religious.

    It appears that both Ireland and Northern Ireland (Ulster) are having the same problem getting gay marriage as both the US and Australia have encountered. The obstacle is these backward religious groups or more accurately known as NARROW MINDED, BIBLE THUMPING SCREWBALLS.

    Yes definitely. Northern Ireland will take the longest I think. We have such religious issues here that homosexuality and equality is so far in the back of peoples mind it is left ignored and hated.

    But don't call Northern Ireland; Ulster. Ulster is a province including counties in the republic and not the Northern Irish State. People get that confused. icon_razz.gificon_razz.gif

    Its fine. Northern Ireland is inside the province of Ulster, one of the 4 in Ireland (as the island). Its not the state itself and many people get that wrong.
    It causes arguments here between people but I think N.I should just make up a new name for the state itself haha.

    I lived for a while in Luxembourg in the mid-1980s. At the time, it was through-and-through Catholic, and rather conservative. It's really quite astounding when you think about it now: the prime minister and deputy prime minister are gay, and now there's gay marriage. The only other country I can think of where all levels of policy and government are so pro-gay is Iceland, which until recently had a lesbian prime minister.

    Both Portugal and Spain seem to be much more gay friendly and accepting.

    I guess what I meant is that not only is there acceptance and equality, but so much so that the highest elected officials in Luxembourg and Iceland can be openly gay and partnered.

    Ugh. All I'm saying is that THE HIGHEST ELECTED POSITIONS were/are held by openly gay people in Luxembourg and Iceland. That is pretty remarkable. Sure, there are elected officials in the US, Canada, Denmark, the Netherlands, ad infinitum who are gay. However, I think it may be some time before the US has a gay president or the UK has a gay prime minister.
