Cóir launch publication against Civil Partnership Bill

March 16th, 2010 · 7 Comments · Equality, Irish Politics, LGBT, Same Sex Partnerships

With a week to go to the committee stage of the Civil Partnership Bill in the Dáil the campaign against the bill increases.

Today Cóir published their report on the Bill and the 20 page document outlines their opinion on the impact of the bill on family breakdown and even an ageing Europe. Gay relationships don’t last as long as heterosexual unions and they have ‘research’ (no citations or bibliography of course) which says we have more sexual partners than heterosexuals.  The campaign against the bill is not just about the fact that people working in jobs which invovle registering relationships might be expected to do their jobs, no Cóir want the whole thing scrapped because there are not a lot of gays, not all gays take up the option when offered and the government should be doing more to support the family .

You can read it here – comments with your favourite bit of makey uppey bullshit are of course welcome.
