    It's nearly 12 hours since the first word, and guess who still haven't expressed congratulations for the Irish people here on RJ. Can you name who?

    A hint: they bash pro-gay US politicians, and promote homophobic US politicians. They also exaggerate every Liberal failing, and ignore or rationalize any Right Wing sins. Any suggestions?

    If a deeply religious country can do this, why can't our GOP?

    Ask them, not me.(I realize a somewhat rhetorical question, but still valid)

    NYT: Irish voters took a stand for love, common sense and justice and sent a message that these values will prevail throughout the world.

    Hmmm, my guess is the conservative sock puppets who are relentlessly posting their anti-gay bile?

    Because they're not deeply religious. In fact they're less religious than atheists, in that atheists actually admit they don't believe in a deity. Our GOP doesn't believe in a deity either, but they sure use the powers of religion to keep their old-school antics alive.

    Actually the silence from the right wing on here is a little spooky, I wonder what's going on?

    I see a lot of detractors posting, but all the posts are of the type intended to bump the gay news down and the pointless arguments up.

    Sadly, we're falling for it again. icon_sad.gif

    I don't find it a bit surprising. They use words like queens, faggot as insult on gay website. What more can you expect?

    Spare us your apples of discord, Art. Did you ever consider that for many here a thread begun by you is one to avoid? Prove your negatives elsewhere.

    Then I suggest you follow your own advice and avoid my threads. And keep your comments to yourself. How does that sound? icon_biggrin.gif

    Except for making a record of how just wrong you can be, fine. Now, go back to the Clamato.

    Keep your comments to yourself! What do you think this is, a free public forum?

    (A) It doesn't really work; it covers the name of the poster, but still lets them scramble the order of the forums to obscure activity by actual gay members, and

    (B) As long as *someone* is feeding the trolls, it doesn't matter if you have the trolls ignored. You just see the forums dominated by their posts in quote form, with a "last post" by someone you would normally respect.

    I suck at web programming, but I'm going to see if I can't come up with a greasemonkey script to help fix some of the problems with ignore. If I make it far enough, and it actually works, I'll share the fixes to make it a little easier to understand what's broken.

    I am very happy that Ireland has allowed gay marriage by a public referendum. Since our American news media is a bit slow on this positive news, I want to see the final vote tally. I heard that it was an overwhelming yes vote but I want to see the final numbers.

    62.1% / 1.2 million people voted Yes for same sex marriage

    Yeah it was a great atmosphere throughout the whole city last night. There was a lot of tears, IT's great to know we are supported, especially because the Catholic church is still very powerful over here with older members of the community.

    They're all corporate shills. Throw out a bone to joe average once in a while just to make it not so obvious...



    Scoundrels...all of them.

    I was more intrigued by the referendum on presidential age ... that's a new one. Gay marriage is so ten minutes ago.

    separation of church and state could take a beating because of this. hence i say as long as a civil marriage is available forcing any religion to accept it is a serious breach of my constitution. if the GOP had suppported 'civil unions" and accorded it all 'marriage rites' it would not be in the mess it is now.

    So what did it propose? Raising or lowering the age for President of Ireland? Here in the US the minimum age for President is 35.
