Voters finished with outdated sectarian ideas

Published 02/05/2013

YOUR leading article about 'gay marriage' was extremely biased and did not represent the views of the majority of the people of Northern Ireland.

Unionist politicians voted against 'gay marriage' and nationalist parties voted mostly for it – to the great disappointment of many Catholics.

A lot of Catholics no longer support Sinn Fein because of its support for abortion and, in particular, their blocking of legislation that would have closed the Marie Stopes clinic in Belfast.

Many have also withdrawn support for the SDLP because of their support for 'gay marriage'.

Politics in Northern Ireland is finally starting to move forward, with people voting on moral and other issues and not blindly following outdated sectarian ideas.
