  1. Just because a household has 'a Mum and a Dad' doesn't guarantee that it's going to be a loving, nurturing household. I know firsthand. My childhood was horrible.

  2. I remember how surprised we were the day the Ireland people passed Marriage Equality. If Ireland passed it, we figured it could happen in the States as well. Such an amazing day, we were so thrilled for the people of Ireland!

  3. What a concept. Two people that love each other. How did we even get to this point where LGBTQ people are even categorized as LGBTQ people. We’re all the SAME. Love is love and no one has the right to tell anyone who they can and cannot spend their lives with.

  4. While I’m not gay, I fully support gay rights. Marriage is a HUMAN right. That means ALL HUMANS. There’s not enough love in this world as it is. When you find it, hold onto it. Fight for it. Defend and protect it. It doesn’t matter what body it comes in, what color that body is. It matters who the person really is inside. LOVE WILL ALWAYS CONQUER HATE AND WIN🏳️‍🌈

  5. I have an issue with the black and white parents dooo something with that girls hair shame on GAY PARENTS should know better leave it to gay bear parents not to know about that

  6. Why just two people? Justify only two. Aren’t bisexuals attracted to both genders or multiple genders? What right does the State have to impose just two people in a marriage? Only serious answers.

  7. I cried all through this beautiful documentary . I live in the U S and have been out for 50 years. When I was young we’re fighting just for the right to protection from harassment. We never dreamed we would ever have the right to marry. That was impossible. The day the U S Supreme Court was supposed to announce their decision on gay marriage I wasn’t expecting any change. I stopped by a friends place and he asked if I had heard the news. I asked, “What news?” He said the Supreme Court. I was sure they said no. He told me they said yes! I couldn’t believe it! My mouth dropped open, my eyes grew as big as saucers and I burst into tears!
    I felt the same way about Ireland. I visited there with my Asian partner for the first time in in 2013. All 4 of my maternal grand parents came from there so I’ve always felt a connection. I was never so proud of my ancestral home land as I was the day of that referendum! Seeing this documentary makes me wish I could have been at Dublin Castle that day. What a wonderful party!

  8. :35 what nonsense. There was never a law on the books that said homosexuals can't marry. Pure propaganda from an arrogant and entitled special interest group that wants to pretend that they are being persecuted.

  9. As an American that is gay of Irish descent on both sides, I think this emanates from the soul. Yes, Ireland is a very Catholic country. I also think the majority of the country said Yes because the Irish have said a very loud "NO" to oppression. The Irish people know this history which is why it is so tearful for many. Be and let be! I think the majority of Irish people rejected this discrimination because it IS the history for the country and her diaspora.

  10. THE OBJECTIVE NATURE OF TRUTH. What does God say in His word? Homosexual desire is not what God originally intended. This is not to say that homosexual desire is the only thing that God did not originally intend. All of our desires have been distorted by sin. But God, through apostle Paul, does describe both lesbian and male homosexual behaviour as “unnatural.” Some have argued this refers to what is natural to the people themselves, so that what is in view is heterosexual people engaging in homosexual activity and thereby going against their “natural” orientation. According to this view, Paul is not condemning all homosexual behaviour, but only that which goes against the person’s own sexual inclinations. But this view cannot be supported by the passage itself. The words for “natural” and “against nature” refer not to our subjective experience of what feels natural to us, but to the fixed way of things in creation. The nature that Paul says homosexual behaviour contradicts is God’s purpose for us, revealed in creation and reiterated throughout Scripture. Everything that goes against God's design and will for humans needs repentance. God says we should seek Him while He may be found which means there will be a time when He can no longer be found. So if we ask when to repent, there's no better time than now.
