There has been a lot of chatter on the interwebz since the announcement of the upcoming Marriage Referendum.
As you can imagine, most of this discussion has happened in the glorious land of Twitter. A place where Yes voters and No voters alike can argue with each other and never change the other’s opinion.
Whilst browsing through the thousands of tweets referring to the referendum, we found a whole host of wonderful arguments for those voting for marriage equality. Check them out below.
Jesus was very well adjusted for an only child brought up by a stepdad in a blended family structure. #VoteYes#MarRef

All these #VoteNo posters got me thinking: couldn’t one argue that the immaculate conception was the original surrogacy? #marref — Gina Kiely (@GinaKiely) April 23, 2015
Just spotted my first No poster in #MarRef. Seems their argument is ‘gays have some rights, why give them more’ . Charming! — Sinead Ahern (@sineadmahern) April 20, 2015

@MFM_Ireland It is ironic that our first interest in child welfare is #marref and not church abuse scandals where we took a nuanced approach — Jamie St Leger (@tweetyjsl) April 17, 2015
If anyone wants to #voteno in #marref I’d ask you to consider this Do we want to be the country known for that? pic.twitter.com/6sxnqhIknG — Jonathan Victory (@victorybyname) April 6, 2015
Breda calling on McAleese ‘as a feminist’. Feminism is one strand of equality. #VoteNo makes as much sense as this: pic.twitter.com/Kh2Zk1TSTd

Mothers of Ireland – If you vote No in the marriage referendum, your gay sons will be forced to marry Katie Hopkins. #fact #YesEquality — chris o’dowd (@BigBoyler) April 21, 2015
@1familyireland @LifeOfBOS Only some mothers and some fathers and some children matter to #mothersandfathersmatter. Hypocrisy. #marRef — Jamie St Leger (@tweetyjsl) April 17, 2015
Saying #yes will remove the right 2 a mother & father is as true as removing the right to an PS4. #YesEquality #mothersandfathersmatter — BGD (@Mr_BGD) April 17, 2015
The #VoteNo posters around Dublin basically say: “If you don’t like the back of the bus, you can always walk.” Ignorant. Hateful. #MarRef — Wolfgang Schmitt (@Golden_Gaytime) April 20, 2015

19 years since my mam left my dad and she couldn’t have made a better decision for both of us. The #VoteNo camp are simply wrong.
