A Fine Gael minister has backed the idea of a referendum next year on extending marriage rights to same-sex couples.

Brian Hayes, minister of state at the Department of Finance, says he has “no problem” with a poll on the constitutional change, despite some in the Fine Gael top brass being wary of the issue.

Mr. Hayes is the most senior Fine Gael minister to come out, specifically, in support of a referendum in 2014. And he joins Justice Minister Alan Shatter and Transport Minister Leo Varadkar in saying he would vote yes in a gay marriage poll. …

Varadkar? Not your typical Irish name. Indian father, Irish mother.

For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that The Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. And angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. (Jude 1:4-7)

The bible makes is clear that God hates this abomination. Then and now. The lake of fire is the destination for the reprobate and their enablers.

An Irish Senator told me personally that his vote for abortion was a “Party vote” and he had no choice. They are all the same here or there. Re-election comes first.
