Ireland holds same-sex marriage vote

DUBLLIN - Voters in the Republic of Ireland are taking part in a referendum on legalising same-sex marriage on Friday.

More than 3.2m people are being asked whether they want to amend the country's constitution to allow gay and lesbian couples to marry.

Polling stations opened at 07:00 BST with voting continuing until 22:00 BST and counting due to start on Saturday morning.

Same-sex marriage is currently legal in 19 countries worldwide.

    Over two thirds Yes vote can only mean well over half of the population in Ireland are either gay or lesbian. Good for them as long as they do not expect other countries to follow suit in the name of human rights. Let the swines screw each other and their country to extinction.

    Yes Carlton, as it was in the days of Noah so shall it be in the days of the coming of the son of man. also romans says in Chapter 1vs 26-28 - Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. 28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. watch and pray always.
