I thought they voted on a referendum on same-sex marriage...
From Eye of the Tiber:
Ireland overwhelmingly approved a referendum to allow “snakes” back
in the country on Saturday, becoming the first country in the world to
allow such a move by popular vote. Though the final tally is yet
unknown, the referendum achieved the support of an estimated 65 percent
of the population.
Michael Fitzpatrick, prominent supporter of the “Hell No” campaign, conceded the referendum’s defeat Saturday morning.
“It is a sad day now that Ireland has approved reentry of paganism,”
Fitzpatrick said, explaining how, although snakes have never actually
existed in Ireland, that the referendum would now allow the “pagans,”
which he believed the snakes represented in the time of St. Patrick, to
take back their country from Catholicism.
Supporters of the reentry of paganism erupted with jubilation in
Dublin, which has long been a liberal stronghold. But the referendum
received support throughout the whole country.
As a result of the referendum, which amends Ireland’s constitution to
approve of snakes “without distinction as to length or toxicity of
their venom,” pagans in the country will be permitted by law to begin
deconstructing everything Catholicism has built as soon as this summer.
