As the constitutional convention in Ireland is about to get underway next month, a group of gay Anglicans is pushing for marriage equality there. Pink News reports:
Changing Attitude Ireland (CAI), the Anglican Church of Ireland’s pro-gay group, has made a submission to the Irish Constitutional Convention in support of extending civil marriage to same-sex couples. The convention is examining equal marriage, along with other key issues, in a year-long consultation exercise. CAI stated in its submission that it “strongly supports the extension of civil marriage to same-sex couples. CAI views the existing inequalities between civil partnership and civil marriage as having a real world detrimental impact on the lives of same-sex couples, and even more on children being raised by them.
Let’s hope Ireland takes this opportunity to bring full equality to its gay and lesbian citizens.
