I intentionally steer away from politics on this site. But it occurs to me that the issue of marriage equality is not a political issue. It’s a human rights issue.
I have friends, family and clients who have been canvassing and have been horrified and hurt by the judgement that they are meeting on Irish doorsteps. As a nation this lack of compassion for each other and for ourselves is at the root of much of our misery. We would do well to work towards change.
