Good day for Equal Rights for Everyone.

Ireland is also the first country to approve Gay marriage by popular vote. This only 22 years after it decriminalized homosexuality.

The Catholic Church was buggering the children routinely for well over thirty years. Whole generations of children grew up being molested routinely and administered corporal punishments by the "churches administrators" amidst constant trauma of the wars.

This abnormal maladjusted people is the end result.
