David Quinn: Same-sex marriage would deny distinct roles of mums and dads
THE Convention on the Constitution gets around to its most controversial topic this weekend, namely same-sex marriage.
Opinion polls show majority support for it, ranging from 74pc in one poll frequently cited by proponents of same-sex marriage, down to 53pc in an 'Irish Times' poll a few months ago. That one is less frequently cited.
Whichever one is closer to the reality, however, it's beyond doubt that there is widespread support in Ireland for same-sex marriage.
