Congratulations to Ireland…

liza…you’ve surpassed the USA on civil rights and liberties: Ireland has voted to legalize gay marriage, both sides say (It’s a WaPo article, so reflexively they put in a Both Sides…):

“As the official ballot counting continued, the only question appeared to be how large the “yes” margin of victory from Friday’s vote would be. Analysts said the “yes” support was likely to exceed 60 percent nationally when official results are announced later Saturday.”

    I would likely guess that our voting percentage would be the same. We have other problems however.

    According to an article I read some recent pope called Ireland “the most Catholic country.” These days, in addition to declining attendance, the Irish priesthood has thinned out to the point the Church is worried that there won’t be enough clergy to handle weddings and funerals.

    Abusing the customers is never a good long-term strategy.

    It’s too bad Phil Chevron didn’t live to see this, he sang of the bad old days back in the day.
