    Default Coir protest against civil partnerships outside Leinster House today (Wednesday)

    There's a protest outside Leinster House at the moment against the civi partnership bill.



    The hand-written posters appear to be done on the back of the Coir Lisbon 1 posters, and Coir leaflets are being handed to Oireachtas members as they walk (or drive) through the Kildare Street gates.

    Some of the posters say:

    - "same-sex unions can never be marriages, and children can never be possessions"

    - "we need to stamp out sodomy not encourage it"

    - "Fianna Fail bends to minority groups"

    All they need is their "Save Ulster from Sodomy" banner to complete this ridiculous farce.

    I actually love to see protests like this, because the people taking part and their views, and their clucking of tongues about their precieved crisis, appear comical

    Well, we knew that already. It's up there with "FF The Republican Party".

    They've been outside there a fair bit over the past month or so.

    Disagree with them, but they're perfectly entitled to make their point democratically. Far better than trying to storm the Dáil.

    Dear lord, a protest outside Leinster House on a day that implicates members inside to being a causal factor in the misery of a nation is by a bunch of far right nutters giving out about consenting adults?

    This country deserves to go bankrupt.

    Apparently not, wasn't it Una Bean Mhic Mhathuna who coined the term "wife-swapping sodomites" during one of the divorce referenda?

    Oh I had my run in with her before, suffice to say she wasn't best pleased with me. Wonder if she's there today...?
