Skip to comments.Ireland a Step Closer to Rejecting the Value of Motherhood and Fatherhood

When the Constitutional Convention voted in favour of same-sex marriage at the weekend, Ireland took a step closer to rejecting the right of a child to have the love of both a mother and a father where such are available.
The Convention heard a great deal about the love two men or two women can have for one another and the legal benefits they cannot access because they cannot get married.
It spent less time discussing the distinct and complementary roles of men and women as mothers and fathers and when it did discuss the matter, took the view that the roles are not distinct and complementary at all.
By logical extension it also took the view that the natural ties dont matter either. It will always be the case that any child raised by a same-sex couple will be raised by only one of its biological parents.
Therefore, if same-sex couples have the same rights as opposite-sex couples to have children, then we must treat the natural ties as being unimportant as well.
This flies in the face of all evidence. We know, for example, that adopted children often go looking for their natural parents in later life.

My ancestors too. How very unfortunate.
The modern Irish state (and Irish nationalism) has roots in the Jacobinism of Wolfe Tone.
They sure can’t call themselves nationalist if they want to be a province to the EU empire.
Most modern leftism shares that same root.
The child could be raised by one biological parents and a baboon. Will the child adopt the traits of the baboon? They totally miss it's about the influence of the life examples the child has to form his own world. Of course if the child also turns out LGB or T, then the heathens must consider that a two-for.
Catholic Ireland is dead.
