Ireland backs gay marriage in 'landslide' victory

Recommended Posts

DUBLIN, Ireland, May 23 (UPI) -- Ireland's government ministers said voters overwhelmingly approved a measure to allow civil same-sex marriage, making it the first nation in the world to legalize gay unions through a popular vote.Campaigners on both sides of the debate said a victory was imminent, even though the official results won't be back until later Saturday. Those who opposed the amendment to the country's constitution to allow same-sex marriage conceded defeat in the heavily Roman Catholic country.David Quinn, the director of the conservative Iona Institute that was leading the charge against the referendum, tweeted a congratulatory message. He later said despite the victory, "we will continue to affirm the importance of the biological ties and of motherhood and fatherhood."
