Fine Gael said that they're not in favour of same sex marriage. Now, that in itself shouldn't be terribly surprising, although some people do seem to labour under the rather mystifying misconception that Fine Gael is progressive, now. Even gay members of FG are often not in favour of gay marriage. But when people went to complain about this on the party's Facebook page, they found that their postings were being deleted. This, of course, prompted a bit of a social media firestorm, with the result that, well, see for yourself. Their page is overrun with some people complaining about the anti-gay-marriage thing, but many more complaining about the censorship. The censors haven't been able to keep up, though from the looks of things they're still at it.
I'd be surprised if the mainstream media doesn't pick up on this tomorrow, and I don't think it'll be in a fashion complimentary to the Endaites. Censorship simply doesn't look good, even if it's only of a Facebook page.
