It's f*cking vile. Points to note:

a) the really nasty comments are actually McGahon's words, not Ahern's, though Ahern claims to be in agreement with them

b) McDowell is talking good liberal sense throughout that debate. What happened to him?

a) hooray for FG. </sarcasm>

b) I think he continued to be liberal about homosexuality, just a tad fascist otherwise, unfortunately. Where did you see his part?

Never mind; found it. I didn't realise the link to McGahon's speech was to the whole debate.

Gah. I do wish these idiots would read the Constitution carefully. There is nothing whatsoever in it that prohibits same-sex marriages or families based thereon.

Just to point out the the second two paragraphs are from FGer McGahon. But Ahern said he agreed with him. We don't know what bits specifically he agreed with, but I've just read McGahon's whole speech and none of it is pretty.
