The Alliance for Defence of the Family and Marriage, yet another cloak for the same small grouping of extreme religious ideologues, came up with the following vile homophobic tract recently.
Don’t read this if you’ve recently eaten.
Now, you might be asking yourself, what sort of deviant could possibly have written such hate-filled nonsense, and in truth, I can’t tell you that. I don’t know what individual wrote this, but I am willing to suggest that whoever wrote it is suffering from severe psycho-sexual disorders.
Perhaps we’ll never know who wrote it, but we can at least say who published it.
The owner of the domain name for the Alliance for Defence of the Family and Marriage is Anthony Murphy.
Anthony is also the owner of Catholic Voice, which he calls a newspaper but which is in reality just a blog. Anthony lives in Athy with his wife KIm and they both do their best to promote their own personal religious agenda, God love them.
They once tried, without success, to force a county councillor to resign from the board of a school for supporting same-sex marriage. Yes. It’s that level of gobshitery.
Anthony and Kim seem to be so obsessed with other peoples’ sex lives that you’d have to wonder if they have any time for a sex-life of their own, but of course, that’s none of my business. What Anthony and Kim do in the privacy of their bed is none of my business, just as what I do is none of theirs.
But strangely, people like Anthony and Kim don’t seem to grasp that essential point.
I don’t know but I could speculate.
Perhaps it’s because Anthony and Kim are utter idiots. Or perhaps it’s because Anthony and Kim are controlled by ugly ideologically-driven people.
Who can tell?
Now, let us turn to Richard Greene, who is certainly not a fool.
Richard Greene, who stands over this hateful, homophobic tract, is a spokesman for Cóir, the extreme-Right grouping that uses abortion as a front for its political ambitions. Another face of Youth Defence, Cóir is the Irish Golden Dawn.
Greene has been unable to remain in any political party for one reason or another. He was a member of the Greens and Fianna Fáil but couldn’t survive there. He couldn’t even survive in the ludicrous Muintir na hÉireann and eventually ended up as a spokesman for the sinister Cóir.
These are the sort of people opposed to same-sex marriage in Ireland.
