From Ireland’s Minister Of Equality

  • Homo Erectus

    To all the bigots in the world: The PEOPLE have spoken!

  • Mark

    that pic is simply s-w-e-e-t!

  • bryan

    Weather is good in Ireland today. The pot of gold has been found…

    • Gustav2

      What? No floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, pestilence? Well, I never!

      • Homo Erectus

        God may strike Bangladesh at any time.

        • Ginger Snap

          I was thinking about whipping out my “big gay weather machine” and sending a hurricane into one of the gulf states in response to this.

          • SockMikey


            Did they pass those out at the last Gay Agenda meeting?!

            I was busy participating in the “Drag the Preachers from the Pulpit” planning committee.

          • Ginger Snap

            We can’t all be expected to participate in all the events on our “big gay agenda” it’s okay that you missed it.

          • zhera

            It’s the prize for Recruiter Of The Year.

          • How did that go? I couldn’t attend as I was in the corrupting the Disney Channel meeting.

          • barracks9

            Hey, now! No hurricanes, please!

          • Homo Erectus

            She meant Quatar.

          • If you’re a wanting to whip up some rain, send it to California, they do so need it, and the gulf states rain tends to get outta hand ya know.

          • RoFaWh

            And when rain is sent to suffering California, make it a slow drizzle that goes on for weeks, even months.

        • SockMikey

          Why did the image of a cross-eyed Zeus throwing lightning bolts just cross my mind?

          • billbear1961


          • GC
          • RoFaWh

            It’s because you crave having sex with someone god-like in all respects. Have sex with Zeus, be penetrated by his lightning bolt of a cock, and the experience will be truly electrifying β€” and you will light up like a light bulb.

            /bad, bad, bad pun

        • Gustav2

          It seems gawd does strike poor Bangladesh daily.

        • oikos

          Or Oklahomo.

        • Jeffrey

          That’ll teach ’em!

      • Justin

        There was a lightning storm in eastern Washington yesterday. I was driving, hadn’t seen the news, and had no idea what caused it. Now I know.

  • Ninja0980

    I like this guy!


    I love it. A “Minister of Equality”


    Let the people vote

    • disqus_oCvsL5SBJH

      I don’t know if I would try that in America…….it’s good that now marriage equality is in the Irish constitution, but the best hope for that in the US, even today, I think, is the Supreme Court

    • zhera

      It would be nice if they could vote into their constitution that voting on civil rights is a no-no.

      • Mike

        I’m sure someone from Ireland can clarify this, but apparently this was considered the best option in order to prevent a mess later.

        • GC

          I’m an American; my understanding is that if marriage equality had been enacted by an ordinary bill, it could have “easily” been repealed in the future by another bill.

          • You’re dead-on. BBC mentioned that yesterday in an article on the vote.

            Not only that, it could have been ruled on by the courts easier through a legislative movement.

    Happy dance time. πŸ˜€

      I’m saving that graphic for (hopefully) use here next month.

        I want one of those vending machines for my rec room!

  • Fuck Yeaahhhh, indeed! Such a fucking wonderful day!

    And for anyone who feels the need to get all clutchy:

  • John Calendo

    Waiting for the EPIC SADZZZZZZ from Maggie and Brian, both of the St. Paddy ancestry.

      • billbear1961


  • Bernie

    I can’t wait to read about Bill Donohue’s SADZ. I’m sure it will be epic.

    • Mike in Texas

      And Dolan too.

  • Gigi

    There’s a double rainbow over Dublin today!!

    • billbear1961

      Vivat JUSTITIA!!


  • Kieron

    Γ‰ireann abΓΊ! Molaim sibh! (Ireland victorious! I commend you[plural you]!)

  • Michael Senesac

    LUCKY CHARMS. They’re magically delicious. Now we truly do own the rainbow.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Fuck YEAAHHH !

    • billbear1961

      You beat me to it!

      Can you imagine anyone with an official post in OUR government celebrating anything with a “fuck yeah”?

      They wouldn’t have the guts!

      It would upset too many sleazeball hypocrites on the right!

      “Oh, language! Language! Jeebus is crying!”

        • billbear1961

          Good heavens!

          I take it back!


      • zhera

        It’s good to see you, Billybear! And on such a glorious day! πŸ˜€

        • billbear1961

          I could not stay away when I found out yesterday was the big day in Ireland!



          EDIT: And today is an even BIGGER day!!

    • billbear1961

      Are there any saltines?

      • DaddyRay

        It is salty enough but you might try communion wafers

        • billbear1961


        • billbear1961

          I didn’t see the picture, Daddy R! πŸ™‚

          I don’t refresh the page often enough (it always takes so long to reload!).

  • bkmn

    What a great way to start the day.

    • billbear1961

      There IS no better way than sheer JOY!


      • Oh hi Bear! Its so nice to see you again!

  • Queequeg

    The Irish are very liberal in their use of the word “fuck”. Fuck, this is a wonderful day!

    • RoFaWh

      If you watch porn from non-Anglophone countries, you will note that “fuck” is often used at the more intense moments regardless of the prevailing language.

      /who? me?

  • Rod Steely

    Wait – they are always railing on about letting the people’s voices be heard. There is no legislature involved, no “unelected judges” to blame. These people prayed to their god and he gave them his answer. So STFU.

  • RoFaWh

    MaryGThompsomn with her stupid $73/hr, Alfa Romeo spam.


  • RoFaWh

    The surprising thing about that photo: he’s a government minister (i.e. a cabinet member) and he’s not old, white-haired, and fat. Unlike his counterparts in so many US states.

  • BudClark

    Seems to me Ireland is the candle that broke the Curia’s back. The only thing MORE astonishing would be for POLAND to pass marriage equality!

  • Brian in Valdosta

    That may just be the greatest tweet by a political figure yet.
