Isn't it a grand thing for the Irish to do?
Again, I wish that my own country was as equality minded. I like the direction that we're going, and that a majority of people do believe that same-sex marriage should be legalized. But this is taking so long. Of course, it was only a matter of years ago when I wondered if I'd be alive to see any same-sex marriages happen at all. So, I guess, as far as culture shifting goes, this is happening pretty quickly. "Red" states are dropping like flies in this regard, and it's a beautiful thing to see. Still, it would be nice if the shift were happening because the people were united in the cause, instead of us having to rely on the Constitution to put the ignorant and hate-filled in their place.
There will come a time when my entire country allows and celebrates same-sex marriage, and I'm looking forward to it. Until then, I'll bask in my awesome Irishness.
