Disaster/Democracy / 10 June 2015

I have been sidetracked from my blog this last few months as a result of getting involved in the Vote Yes For Equality campaign in the Referendum on Same Sex Marriage in Ireland.

I made some work around the issue which I posted online.... it's the best I could do as a militant armchair activist. Being part of a winning vote in Ireland is a new and wonderful experience for me.... a sensation so strange that it may take some time to get used to.

All manner of nonsense and sour grapes continue to flow from the Vatican where there seems to be some confusion about the difference between a disaster and a democracy. The morning after the Yes Vote carried the day the Vatican spokesman called the result a "disaster for humanity".  

I felt moved to made this visual aid to assist them in their Democracy/Disaster fairness though it's an easy mistake to make what with both words begin with the letter D and all.

Funny how the church get in a quandary over any moves to do with Equality.
