Ireland – Parliament BANS ‘religious discrimination’ against LGBTI
Just months after Ireland legalised homosexual ‘marriage’, the Irish parliament has passed an amendment to the Employment Equality Act – to REMOVE exemptions which had previously allowed religious institutions to choose to NOT employ homosexuals.
This applies to schools and to other ‘religious institutions’. Lifesite notes that 90% of Ireland’s schools are run by the Catholic Church, and that this will force them to employ open homosexuals!
The church-affiliated schools are funded by the government.
“The Iona Institute, a non-profit organization set up to defend the Catholic faith” says the ban is unconstitutional, and ‘believes that the exemption is supported by Section 44.2.1 of the Irish Constitution which states that “Freedom of conscience and the free profession and practice of religion are, subject to public order and morality, guaranteed to every citizen.” ’
This is exactly the sort of legislation that the Victorian government has promised to re-introduce (they passed it prior to losing the 2010 election but the Coalition re-instated the right for religious groups to discriminate with regard to sexuality and marital status).
Of course this is the MAIN GAME – it isn’t just all about homosexuals getting the right to ‘marry’.
Homosexuals want FULL acceptance – and want laws to BAN anyone criticising their behaviour and to STOP any form of ‘discrimination’ against them.

Every child comes from and needs BOTH a mother and a father. Same-sex "marriage" intentionally keeps either a mother or a father from the child. Government should protect the child through upholding traditional marriage.

True marriage offers true equality for children. Every child comes from and needs BOTH a Mum and a Dad. Every human being has dignity and deserves respect. All sorts of relationships can be respected at law without having to change marriage laws. In fact that has been the case legally for many years. The simple fact remains though that not every relationship is marriage.
