  • Ireland recovering from Theocracy.

    "The Republic of Ireland has voted overwhelmingly to legalise same-sex marriage in a historic referendum. More than 62% voted in favour of amending the country's constitution to allow gay and lesbian couples to marry.
    It is the first country in the world to legalise same-sex marriage through a popular vote.
    Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny said it was a "small country with a big message for equality" around the world.
    The referendum was held 22 years after homosexual acts were decriminalised in the Republic of Ireland."

    You mean, like the rest of the west, Ireland is descending into abject moral depravity. Of course we all know where the liberal elite are taking this...

    Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

      It was the will of the people not the elite.
      Glendower: I can call spirits from the vasty deep.
      Hotspur: Why, so can I, or so can any man;
      But will they come when you do call for them? Shakespeare’s Henry IV, Part 1, Act III:

      go with the flow the river knows . . .

      Frank

      I do not know, therefore everything is in pencil.

          Do you even know what a theocracy is, FF?

            "It's evolution; every time you invent something fool-proof, the world invents a better fool."

            I find that evolution is the best proof of God.

              A Theocracy is not a democratic nation with a Catholic/Religious majority. If you're going by that definition, then all nations are Theocracies.

                  I wasn't aware that the choices were only between theocracy and democracy. When did you demonstrate that one?

                        You missed the sarcasm! Of course there are other choices like Military Dictatorship with a religious agenda.

                          Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what's going to be had for dinner.

                            I got the sarcasm quite well, but it is too bad that blaming religion for all the ills of the world is just an old strawman. In truth, there's many different governments, including dictatorships with an atheist agenda (such as the USSR and China).
