Re: God Hates Ireland ? Land of the Sodomite Damned

we discussed this a long time back
Britain's Supreme Court side with bakery who refused to bake same-sex marriage cake
Ashers Baking Co. in Northern Ireland refused in 2014 to make a cake iced with the Sesame Street characters Bert and Ernie and the phrase "Support Gay Marriage." The owners argued they shouldn't be forced to put messages on their products at odds with their Christian beliefs. The court agreed.
"In a nutshell, the objection was to the message and not to any particular person or persons," Judge Brenda Hale wrote in the unanimous decision.
A finely balanced edict.
It's ideological and there's no shortage of ideology in Norn Iron. Those bakers take themselves too seriously, as if the world revolves around them.
BTW it is the only region of UK that does not allow gay marriage. 
I would say that refusing to bake a cake is very non-Christian, but I suppose the driver is the Bible (in particular, Old Testament) and not the teachings of Jesus.
Old habits die hard.

In the Republic, gay marriage is allowed. The Taoiseach (PM to you) Leo Varadker is gay as are several cabinet ministers.

A precedent has been set.

// it wasn't long ago; it was about 2-3 years AFAIR

Sinead O’Connor has converted to Islam and is now known as Shuhada’ Davitt
“This is to announce that I am proud to have become a Muslim. This is the natural conclusion of any intelligent theologian’s journey. All scripture study leads to Islam. Which makes all other scriptures redundant."

This was world media news for a few days. Nothing at all on mainstream Irish media.

Sinead O'Connor never wants to 'spend time with white people again' as she finds them 'disgusting'

Not looking good; both God and Sinead hate Ireland. Who's next?

I suspect she has mental-health problems. But she hasn’t converged on the right diagnosis yet.

Sometimes parents can be so nasty to their children.
