Eamon Ryan – A TD to all

February 17th, 2010 · 2 Comments · Green Party, Irish Politics, LGBT, Same Sex Partnerships

Thanks to WorldByStorm for this email he received regarding a meeting in Leinster House tonight hosted by Dublin South TD and Cabinet Minister Eamon Ryan.

The meeting is regarding the Civil Partnership Bill and the delgation attending are lobbying against the bill and seeking protection for those who wish to concientiously object to conducting the registrations of partnerships.

But they are not homophobic, ah no…

Our concerns must be conveyed in a dignified and non-emotive way in order not to allow our concerns about the bill being described by the media as homophobic or intolerant.Our case will be that we have a democratic right to campaign for the protection of marriage and the family as they are understood by moral and natural law and by all the major religions of the world.

The group, as yet unknown, are hoping to meet with other TD’s during their visit.  Anyone who attends, delegation or TD and wants to report on it please let me know!

Update:  Word from Leinster House (Green Party) that there were 60 at meeting and that Coir and Richard Greene took over the meeting. There was one gay man in attendance.
