IRELAND: MOTHER’S DAY WILL BE BANNED IF GAYS CAN MARRY?


Now we have heard a lot of strange arguments against same-sex marriage in recent years, but we think that Irish Senator Fidelma Healy Eames’ recent claim that marriage equality would lead to Mother’s Day being banned just about takes the cake. Ahead of Ireland’s same-sex marriage vote in May, Healy Eames took to twitter to post this little gem: Happy Mothers’ day all! Hope we can continue to celebrate it after #SSM passed. In some US states Mothers & Father’s Day banned #pcgonemad. The senator was of course lampooned on social media, although she resolutely stood by her comments.Oh and just for the record, no US state has ever banned Mother’s or Father’s Day.
