Colin Farrell Lends Unwavering Support To Same-Sex Marriage
Hollywood actor Colin Farrell has reiterated his strong support for same-sex marriage in Ireland.
Speaking on national television, Farrell said he supports it “with every fibre of my being”.
Speaking on primetime TV in Ireland, Hollywood actor Colin Farrell has spoken about how his brother was beaten up because he’s gay.
Farrell said he believes “it’s sad, disappointing and unfair” that his brother had to leave Ireland to marry his partner, Stephen Mannion, in Canada.
“To think that they had to leave their own country to do that is sad and disappointing and just grossly unfair I feel.”
The actor said he tries to understand the point of view of people who are against same-sex marriage but he can’t see how declaring love and faithfulness between two people can be a threat to others.
“All we’ve known up until now is marriage between a man and a woman and guess what? There’s a hell of a lot of unsuccessful marriages between men and women. There’s a hell of a lot of children who have to experience day-to-day the arguments, the bickering, the domestic violence, between their parents.”
