Statement on the result of Irish referendum on the redefinition of marriage from Father Shenan J. Boquet,
president of Human Life International:
"Today the Irish people have chosen decay and decline. This decision will not bring peace or progress, but will bring, as we have seen around the rest of the so-called developed world, more internal division and the abandonment of religious freedom and other basic rights.
There is no sustainable peace for those who reject God's law, and the effect on the traditionally Catholic nation of Ireland will be severe. We pray with our Irish brothers and sisters that this error will be reversed, and that the Church will again take up its true leadership role and unequivocally and prophetically tell the truth about God's plan for marriage, the family and a flourishing, peaceful society."
Statement on Irish homosexual “marriage” referendum outcome
"Today, the voting majority of the Irish people have voted in effect to reject God’s law on marriage. Irrespective, the law of God remains unchanging.
True believers in Jesus Christ have now a unique, sole and imperative role to draw God’s mercy upon our wounded nation. In the end, HE has the victory.
