Civil Partherships

In a recent news item, Gloria TV makes reference to Pope Benedict’s admonition in regard to proposals for the legalisation of homosexual and lesbian unions and the equating of such unions in law to marriage – giving them the same rights and benefits, etc. The Pope said that clear and emphatic opposition to such proposals is the duty of all people.

In my blog of 24 October 2009 I drew readers’ attention to the proposals contained in the ‘Civil Partnership Bill’ which is soon to be debated in the Dail (the Irish Parliament). I make no apology in emphasising once again for Irish readers the importance of contacting all your local TDs (in writing or by email, etc.) pointing out, politely, how this Bill would undermine marriage, family and society in Ireland, and your objection to its being presented in the Dáil.

All TD’s (Members of Parliament ) in Dail Eireann (The Irish Parliament) be contacted and you can find out who your local TD's are via this link:
