If This Video Doesn’t Make You Support Marriage Equality, Nothing Will (VIDEO)

Marriage equality has steamrolled through the nation and world recently, perhaps faster than any civil rights movement in history. In fact, on this coming Tuesday, the United States Supreme Court will hear arguments both for and against equal marriage, likely ending the argument once and for all. Further, chances are, that since marriage equality is legal in more states than not, it will soon be legal nationwide.

Well, Ireland is doing something a little different. They are holding a nationwide popular vote on the issue of marriage equality, which is huge, considering that they only decriminalized homosexuality 22 years ago. If the vote passes, Ireland will become the first nation in the entire world to legalize marriage equality by popular vote.

Well, of course there are people in Ireland, just like those in the United States and around the world, who think that marriage equality will be the end of the world, despite the fact that nothing catastrophic has happened yet in the places where it is already legal.

The most common argument is, of course, “OMFG, Think of our CHILDREN!” just like it is here in America. Here is a hateful poster from an anti-equality group that is campaigning to have people vote against equality:

Of course, this argument is baseless, as there has been no evidence that children raised by gay couples find life any more difficult than their counterparts who are raised by straight couples, single parents, or in any other type of family. If their lives are more difficult, it is likely because of the antics of homophobic bigots.

The other usual arguments include “OMFG ICKY GAY SEX” and other nonsense surrounding “traditional” marriage, and having children and the like. However, none of those can hold a candle to logic and reason, and certainly can’t even begin to touch what you’re about to watch. This video has people coming out of the closet in Ireland and around the world, and it should make anyone think twice about taking an anti-marriage equality stance. Without further ado, here is perhaps the most inspirational marriage equality video ever created:

Support marriage equality because it is the right thing to do, for all humans to be equal, and for all love to be equal in the eyes of the law.
