Warning: Hypocritical hit piece
The Irish prime minister, Leo Varadkar, who is gay, brought his partner to a meeting on Thursday with the US vice-president, Mike Pence, a conservative Christian once dubbed the face of anti-LGBTQ hate in America.
Varadkar, who is in Washington this week to reaffirm the longstanding shared history between the two countries, brought his partner, Matt Barrett, to a St Patricks Day breakfast at the vice-presidential residence at the Naval Observatory.
Varadkar tweeted that he and Barrett had received a warm reception at Pences home, but in pointed remarks to Pence and gathered media, he also called out various forms of discrimination.
I lived in a country where if Id tried to be myself at the time, it would have ended up breaking laws, he said. But today, that is all changed. I stand here, leader of my country, flawed and human, but judged by my political actions, and not by my sexual orientation, my skin tone, gender or religious beliefs.

What’s his problem? Same sex marriage is legal in the US.
And then they all went to see the Play Hamilton...
Believe me, no one cares who anyone is banging as long as it is consenting adults.
That’s why its weird today; more than half a century ago the government asked the US to limit the number of Irish allowed to stem the brain drain.
Ireland only allowed divorce in the 1990s; now they have abortion and “gay marriage” (though Northern Ireland allows neither of those - both the Protestants and Catholics there still have some Christianity). They are low-rent imitations of Americans - and I say that as an Irishman.
Amen to that. Hes a sodomite, which God calls an abomination, therefore using Biblical standards (and as a Christian, thats what I use regarding matters of morality), hes an abomination. Of course Im supposed to reach out to the lost and tell them of the repentance and salvation which can be theirs under God, assuming their hearts arent already hardened and their consciences seared, but that doesnt mean that I cant use Biblical discernment to judge their immorality as an abomination. If God calls it that, who am I to know better than my Creator?
In light of MeToo and various witch hunts against conservatives, Id say that he had been quite prescient to abide by that rule. The left mocks him for it because they know that he left them no opening to throw a ton of mud at him just in case they could make some stick. All men should adopt his rule to the best of their ability-if the women dont like it, just tell them that as they have decreed all men to be potential rapists, men are doing what they can to protect their potential victims.
Half Irish. Father is Indian.
And when the left starts with their inevitable false equivalency of Bible-believing Christians to muzzies, just remind them that were not the ones throwing sodomites off tall buildings, neither do we want to-Christians believe that a forced conversion is no conversion at all.
And remind them that its not Christians trying to force others to uphold the lefts beliefs, in suing Christian business owners who wont disseminate the sodomite propaganda for them. Its not good enough for them that we dont publicly bring up the issue, they demand that we also help to spread their propaganda!
And, they only do this to Christians.
Just as conservatives are forced to support the lefts propaganda with our tax money going to NPR and such. Or to public schools touting the sodomite life and practices, often with admonitions to the children to not tell their parents.
This enforcement of leftist conformity-not just negatively, by not speaking against it, but positively, by being forced to publicly support it, is designed to break the spirits of Christians.
Or to abortion, even giving teens the right to not inform their parents, in some places, that theyre going to have an abortion.
But theyll expel a kid for giving a classmate an aspirin.
Ireland is now in bed with Iran.
The Muslim Brotherhood’s most important teaching center is located in Ireland. And it has been there for decades.
These people are tiresome. There is no religious litmus test to hold any public office in the US. If you don’t like him, vote for someone else.
It's too bad, isn't it, that he didn't return the graciousness.
Exactly! Nobody cares what he does with his body parts. Why can’t he just shut up about it?
Oooh! Cher could write a song about him.
“Half Irish. Father is Indian.”
Every night, the men would come around and lay their money down
No one would judge him by his sexual orientation if hed just SHUT UP about it!
Homosexuality used to be the love that dared not speak its name. Now its the love that wont shut the **** up.
And note that Pence treated them like he treats EVERY human being, with warmth and respect; unlike this guy who used the opportunity to attack Pence for having beliefs.
“I lived in a country where if Id tried to be myself at the time, it would have ended up breaking laws”
He wanted to have sex in public and thought it was wrong that there were laws against that?
