This wouldn't be the first time ive expressed this opinion, and it looks like it won't be the last.
But since you've reacted with genuine wonderment instead of the usual ignorant attack...

If you're gay and you want to solidify your relationship then you should look elsewhere beyond the church. The church doesn't want you, nor should we make the church fold and accept you to increase it's scandalous tax numbers. If anything, the concept of marriage should be done away with, but that's hopefully a future vote.

As for the self respecting comment. I'm quite aware that many gay people believe in a creator/Jesus' da interpretation, and that Jesus was a pretty cool guy that would have accepted them, since if you believe that, his da is infallible and created them.

But marriage, if you hold such strong beliefs, means something else. For a start, if conducted in a church it means you follow a man made doctrine that condemns you to hell.

I'm amazed this needs explaining
It needed explaining because you are completely and utterly wrong. There are all sorts of non-religious wedding options in Ireland. The church doesn't have to be involved at all.

He's actually the only person I've seen bring up the church.

Even the holy joe no voters haven't put as much emphasis on the church as he has. Such a weird and stupid point to make

Loads of closet Tories in the UK apparently. Could be a very weird one for us of they go and pull out of EU. Imagine we could have a customs border with the North?

I assume we'd still have some agreement put in place but who knows.

I'll probably leave if the UK leaves, even if I don't have to for Visa reasons.

they reckon Cameron will go to Brussels, arrange some sort of concessions on what he wants and claim a victory and not stage a referendum at all

Did all the UKIP supporters just vote Tory once they got in the booth?

seems that way. fucking depressing stuff all round.

big jump in UKIP voters in my area, though. they've came 3rd with 8,000 more votes from when they came 5th in the last election.

not surprised but seeing those results in black and white is a worrying sign of where we're heading and it's fucking ten times more worrying now that we're putting down some roots :(

Well Miliband has to go. What a complete fucking disaster he was.

The head of Milliband. How could anyone vote for him as prime minister in fairness.

i don't think milliband is a bad guy, he just wasn't a suitable candidate. i'd have voted for him but i cant have anything to do with labour. i tried to talk myself into it yesterday morning but i just couldn't vote for that party.

Milliband is terrible. I'm glad the Tories got such a majority that they hopefully won't need the DUP. My tactical vote probably wasn't needed.

I think it's sad that the Green Party get around 1m votes and one seat and the Tories get 10m and 320 seats.

Fair point, but I don't like the system in general.

Listened to radio Ulster this morning, Northern Ireland is fucked for politics. You forget how much until you hear them sharting on. DUP and Sinn Fein need to fuck off.

it kills me.

i sometimes tune into nolan to get an idea of how things are, but i can never last more than 10 minutes max. a reasonable discussion just turns into a shouting match and a points scoring exercise and it fucking depresses the life outta me.
