Dublin could soon be the Sodom and Gomorrah of the future following Ireland’s historic Yes vote backing same-sex marriage, it was claimed.

While the country continues to celebrate the enshrining of marriage equality into the Constitution, some people are a little less than enthusiastic.

“What happened in Sodom & Gomorrah Joe? What happened?” said Cathy, who had a few words of warning for Liveline listeners on RTE radio earlier today.

“Dublin might experience Sodom and Gomorrah in the near future.”

Adding: “There's a price to pay for evil."

The irate Cathy warned RTE host Joe Duffy that there was “no place for God when there is lustful love”.

When challenged that some 1.2 million people had voted in support of same-sex marriage, Cathy said her opinion was well informed by the bible.

“And that’s enough. Some people still have great respect for such opinions.”

“You can't change Christ's teaching for the whims of modern secular society,” said another caller in support of Dublin’s dire Sodom and Gomorrah warning.

“The referendum may have made our gay brothers and sisters happier but at what price to the rest of us?”

The kingdoms of Sodom and Gomorrah have been used as metaphors for vice and homosexuality viewed as a deviation.
