Comments: Equal civil marriage: some developments

Being able to tell about meetings like this one are EXTREMELY HELPFUL, whenever I evangelize among those who only associate religion w/ anti-gay hate. Thank you, and God bless!

There was a large Christian contingent at the inaugural meeting of Equal Marriage Northern Ireland last night, wearing our "Christians Who Want Equal Marriage" badges. It's going to be a longer and more difficult struggle here than in GB, or the Republic, for that matter. Even when we get a majority vote through the Assembly, which we're not far from, actually, the DUP can use the minority protection provisions of the Good Friday Agreement to veto equal marriage. Goodness knows what happens after that.
