My opening post is all that survives and how true it has turned out.

There is now only one view allowed.

The thread is still very revealing,it shows huge intolerance.

So You Think is subtle but throughout his posts are vague threats," these views are going to get you in trouble " " your mindset will have to change " " you are lucky Betfair allowed that comment "

dlarrsonf isint subtle at all,his opening gambit is just an attack on differing views,this is followed by name calling and the labelling of two continents as being backward and uneducated.

The cake story came from the North,a gay group deliberately made an order for a wedding cake from a small bakery whose owners were loyalist and religious,they politely declined and a complaint ensued,it was manufactured ( the complaint that is )
The relevant body heard the complaint and dismissed it.

Marriage is the cradle of our civilisation,it predates our religion.
It has been under attack by the liberal elite for forty years with disastrous results,the subsidising of illegitimacy has been an expensive failure.

The only hope for Marriage in Ireland lie in Clonskeagh,I just hope the liberals will behave in their usual twisted craven fashion when the Imams come out strongly against gay marriage.

I find the "news" in general so drearily depressing this past while that, apart from keeping myself informed, most matters that the meejah wrap themselves into knots over I tend to ignore.

A well-connected political friend describes himself as a "news junkie" and will have everything worth reading (his words) consumed by 9am of a day including organs that I wouldn't wrap my chips in or news channels that help George Orwell maintain his visionary reputation. Personally, I catch the news headlines, pick and choose a few favourite columnists but although I haven't ditched the periodicals that fall on my mat they largely go unread nowadays because the alternative - to be well-informed - is mostly utterly depressing.

The notion of marriage as somehow untouchable or offering a noble institution is merely the fashion of the era. It's hardly worth pointing out that recent history's greatest monster all believed in marriage and its the bedrock of most religions. Anyone thinking that religion isn't second only to "the root of all evil" in today's world is living in cuckoo land in my humble opinion. For every gay couple, you have unwed couples, childless couples, bachelors and bachelorettes so they all be perverse because they don't conform.

My religion is tolerance, something which I aspire to and fail regularly. A lot of people seem to need a cause these days: water, pylons, wind energy, gay marriage (or not), pro-Life, anti-austerity, etc). Surely its better to work hard, play hard and develop interests that keep you amused and invigorated throughout your life than hopping on bandwagons that appeal to some baser instinct that seems to suggest someone else is wrong and I'M RIGHT".

Water charges are no more unjust than parking fines. gay marriage is no more objectionable than men-only priests..........(time to take another lie down)

All marriages in my time were based on a family unit and geared for children,if they didnt arrive so be it.

I thought marriage should be based on the fact you love that person and want to spend the rest of your life with them, with respect back in your day if you got somebody pregnant you where forced into marriage (as to not upset the church) which is no different from the religions you bang on about today

I'm not suggesting you are a wagon jumper Wildman. In some ways I admire your iconoclasm and you are consistent.

I can see that you might bridle against the gay lobby and I have absolutely no doubt that any child is better for having a mother and father in any family. I don't believe that a "nuclear" mother and father makes life any easier or less difficult but it does make it more balanced for the child and this is important as a young boy or girl develops because the difference between male and female is just enormous and it never ceases to amaze me how different we are.

Gay marriage etc is one thing, personally I am a little uncomfortable with two men or two women adopting a child-this is probably my age and prejudice as I sometimes think this child can be regarded as a "trophy" in some circumstances. Many also are repelled by the notion of gay sex yet, astonishingly, thanks to the proliferation of porn on today's life male gay sex is the pressure-of-choice for young bucks. Is this the pornography industry or the gay lobby's influence? Either way, its fairly disgusting. But, on balance, I would vote for more rights for a minority even though one couldn't depend on the state to compassionately manage adoptions etc

The problem as I see it is total lack of honesty in virtually every single debate that occurs in politics and many areas of social or economic life. One simply isn't allowed to speak rationally (truthfully?) because of these weird mores we have developed and now accept as truth. Therefore, no honest debate on migration, court awards, the insurance industry, water charges (again!), religion, intolerance etc etc all the topics you raise incessantly. My main issue with your contributions is painting issues black or white (forgive the pun) whereas my world is grey and, hopefully, very occasionally a little brighter.

please explain to me how 2 people who possibly didn't love each other staying together was the best thing for the child?? yes it is best for a child to live with their mother and father but not in all circumstances, if it is a good loving home then yes but I bet many where not

as for the church now don't be talking nonsense, we all know families disowned their daughters if they fell pregnant and didn't wed the father (put in those homes where they not), why was this?? fear of the church, the stigma involved etc................, all to do with a bunch of self righteous gits who a fair percentage where going around touching up young boys

at the moment all the irish polling companies appear to have an urban bias.

powers have their pricing set at 59-41, relating that they have no faith in the polls.

at the moment in the party polling we have sf averaging 22-23 and ff averaging 17-18, I believe these figures may be correct for urban areas(Dublin/cork/limerick) but wrong nationally as I feel ff may be at minimum on a par with sf.

not enough of the older cohort of "redneck dyed in the wool" culchies are included in these polling samples, and hence we get inaccurate polls.

if this referendum goes to a knife edge, then the "shy tory" effect combined with a lazy polling system, may relate that ff are being under-estimated with the general election in mind. for some time I have been tempted by the 5/6 of ppowers on ff getting 30 or more seats, the only thing stopping a punt is I am struggling to see ff win more than a max of 3 seats in Dublin.

one final point, ppowers have a referendum market of the constituency with the highest market..why no odds for Carlow/Kilkenny, as this constituency is bound to have one of the highest turnouts with the bye election on the same day and with a strong rural element to both counties, a no majority has to be a possible here, could be close to the highest in the country.

you may be correct Wildman, I assume the highest turnout will be C/KK due to bye election, as I would rate this a rural tending constituency(outside of KK city and Carlow town), a NO is in play, and could be a contender for highest percentage no.

with the catholic church finally rejecting the a la carte approach to its doctrine and firmly backing the no, the late announcement will be the wild card in the referendum. my hunch is rural Ireland rejects the referendum and urban supports, the respective turnouts the deciding issue.

Sure get off at Bray and walk up Bray Head (great views again up there) or do the cliff walk around to Greystones - See so much more on foot

My climbing days are over.

I would love to do that cliff walk but would need a fair bit of time.

The sight of you whizzing by could be too much for me to bear.

Norma , you have some neck giving Giraffes as an example

That's quite a good line, Wonks, most out of character.  That's your quota filled for the week.

Borneo, have you considered giving the Red Line a spin, Wonks recommends it to all our visitors.  Bring that trusty rifle with you, fully loaded, with extra cartridges worn across your chest.

I don't know my Capital city well but know enough to know there would be nothing of interest on that line.

I'd say you would know the borough of Dun Laoighaire like the back of your hand.

Only ever been to Kingstown to get the Ferry.

No real rugby schools or clubs down there that I can think of off top of my head.

Seapoint, possibly.

It was the Mail Boat in my time.

I thought Blackrock was in that borough.
I think in electoral terms it is.

Blackrock senior team play in Stradbrook which is a 5 minute walk from CBC, close to Dun Laoghaire. Blackrock College is a good bit out between Blackrock and Booterstown.

Yes they're all in the same electoral area as far as I know

I know Blackrock alright.  Never really ventured much further South.

Colm O Gorman is a professional pr1ck who turns every debate he is part into as shouting match of insults. Such an arrogant disaplay by him tonight, at one point he said he couldn't beleive he had to listen to alternative arguments from the no side. Don't think he is a big fan of democracy or debate.

Much more reasoned debate on Vinny Browne now with John Waters and Michael Martin.
