The fight for equality goes on.

For those who said, when the anti-discrimination laws were being passed, that practising Christians should be exempted on the grounds of conscience, this is precisely the sort of thing that we all said would happen. As it turned out, no such exemption was granted and the transition to equality, at least on mainland UK has been much smoother than most expected.

It will be interesting to see how the legal challenge goes.

I really hope this couple win but in all honesty it's Ireland it's still very old school and holier than thou , so i'll be surprised if they do. Just look at the abortion laws, not that i'm comparing that to gay relationships, simply making the point that Irish laws are very "religiously righteous".

Not my opinion before i get flamed to hell...

Personally i believe live and let live, all because one person does one thing or lives one way, doesn't mean they are any better of worse than another that isn't, they're just different. The world would be a very boring place if we were all the same. If someone isn't hurting others, what does it matter what they do as long they're happy. People get to hung up on other peoples private lives...

Do they exempt other religions on the grounds of conscience? Either in the mainland or in NI?

There's no argument here...the ban should stand...bottom line.
