On Friday, Ireland held a referendum on same-sex marriage. It passed with a healthy majority and this raises a few questions.
Now that the Irish people have shown the Church their will for equality and love for every man, woman and child, surely that is more powerful than a Catholic faith, which has been instilled by fear?
If we are to accept that the Church may need a reality check, as Archbishop Diarmuid Martin suggested, then should we not ask ourselves the question: does the Church hold any relevance in our lives and in society, as we, the people, are now giving lessons in morals to the Church?
Religions are supposed to teach us how to be good people, but we are teaching the Church how to be better.
