Equal marriage in Ireland

“Ireland became the first nation to approve same-sex marriage by a popular vote, sweeping aside the opposition of the Roman Catholic Church in a resounding victory Saturday for the gay rights movement and placing the country at the vanguard of social change”: from today’s New York Times story.

Sixty-two percent of those voting voted for equal marriage rights. Resounding indeed.
