Hilarious video foresees Irelandâs impending same-sex marriage âArmaGAYddonâ
In the video embedded below, an Irish married couple in the year 2017 named John and Mary tell the story of Irelandâs âArmagayddon,â which will purportedly happen when the country legalizes same-sex marriage.
Crouched in the front hall of their boarded up townhouse, Mary says, âTheyâre coming Theyâre coming, arenât they?â
Peering out through the mail slot and holding a shotgun, John replies, âI donât see any. It doesnât mean theyâre not out there somewhere.â
âOh, God, John, theyâre going to get in,â Mary says, beginning to sob. âTheyâre going to get in!â
Then sitting on their sofa together, the two tell of how in 2015, âIreland had a referendum on marriage equality. Sure, we werenât one bit worried.â
âWe thought at best, itâd be close,â Mary says.
âAs far as we knew,â John says, âthere was only five or six gays operating in Ireland at the time.â
But then the referendum passed, and Ireland became âunrecognizableâ from âso much equality.â
âWe tried to fit in,â says John, âbut the weddingsâŚI felt so underdressed.â
âAnd the cakes,â says Mary. âAmazing.â
John and Mary have to keep their son Michael in a box and home school him for his own protection.
âI feel frightened all the time,â Mary says.
The video was made to promote the LGBT Noise March in Dublin, which takes place Sunday, Aug. 24 at 3 p.m. at Dublinâs City Hall.
