Ireland: Referendum on re-definition of marriage likely to be held on 22 May

IrelandIt looks like the referendum through which a definition of marriage would be added to the Constitution to include the hypothesis of same-sex “marriages” will take place on May 22. Taoiseach (Prime Minister) Enda Kenny told an interviewer that he “expects” the vote will be held on that date.

Speaking at his party’s conference at the weekend, he announced that a vote for same-sex “marriage” would show the world that Ireland had evolved into a “fair, compassionate and tolerant nation”. You can draw your own conclusions as to what he thinks a No vote would signify.
