    Default A Hate Group Or A Legitimate Organisation



    Could the same logic not be applied to say blacks and whites marrying? Oh wait, it was up until 1967 when they finally legalised mixed marriages in America. It's sad to see almost fifty years after these arguments were made in America, that an Irish group would be using them to once again discriminate against a group of people here in Ireland.

    Check out their website -

    The Iona Institute | Welcome to the Iona Institute Website

    It's chock full of anti-gay, anti-Muslim articles.

    The argument that every child ever born has had a mother and father will soon become untrue. Eggs and sperm can be made out of stem cells, regardless of sex. This has been done with mice already. We are not too far away from two men or two women having their own biological child.

    Their entitled to their views. I wouldn't call them a hate group rather they are a group who wants society dominated by their own narrow religious views. I find the fact that they couldn't resist a Helen Lovejoy moment quite amusing.

    Yes. Considering men and women are half of each other.

    USER1234(iirc) posted a link a while back on the subject - I'll see if I can find it.

    What? And does the resultant cells grow from a petrie dish into a human baby without the use of a womb?

    I hope one day to live in a world where I will be so contented and so on top of things that I will have time to worry about the private lives of others

    Not sure if I would classify these Iona people as a hate group though.

    As regards their views being hateful, well at the present moment no, they would not be regarded as hateful, just ultra conservative. However, in a few decades I think such views will be regarded as hateful. Compare how Enoch Powell was received as opposed to Nick Griffin.
