Ireland abolishes obstacles to gay marriage
(Blogmensgo, gay blog from 12th August 2015) A bill to endorse the legalization of gay marriage will be presented to both chambers of the Irish Parliament (Oireachtas) at the next session which begins September 22, 2015. The announcement of the Government following the rejection by the Court of Appeal, July 30, two motions to invalidate the referendum of May 22, 2015.
If the May referendum which has legalized marriage between same sex couples, the result could be challenged in court. What was done separately an electrician and a gardener - which one does not include the names to preserve the LGBT flavor of these last lines before the summer holidays.
The three judges of the Court of Appeal rejected them into believing that they had produced no tangible evidence likely to challenge the referendum. The plaintiffs claimed that the election results had been skewed by a one-way communication campaign. They were sentenced to costs.
The electrician and the gardener can still appeal to the Supreme Court, but only on points of law. In other words, the form and not substance. An appeal to the Supreme Court is not suspensive, unlike the appeal court of appeal.
Future Marriage 2015 law stipulates that this sacrament unites two people, regardless of their sex. The same text also amends the 2004 law on registers of civil status and the regulations applicable to the change of status of spouses (PACS to marriage). Once adopted, the text of the new law as a basis to 34 th amendment of the Irish Constitution.
All parties represented in Parliament are in favor of gay marriage, the vote of the bill will be a mere formality. Ditto for ratification by President Michael D. Higgins.
Only after the final transposition of the referendum in the law and the Constitution that the first gays and lesbians marriages can be celebrated in Ireland. Is in principle end in 2015, but more likely early in 2016.
Comment. As expected, the three judges passed for applicants the sacred by simpletons understand how the electrician and gardener ignore constitutional law.
I think, however strong the victims of the recent attack on the occasion of the Gay Pride in Jerusalem.
