Lucinda’s party should put family values to fore

Lucinda Creighton says she wishes to establish a new political party, but also says that she will be voting for same-sex marriage in the forthcoming referendum.

There will be nothing new in the body politic if this party swims in the same cesspool of profanity as the other parties.

Ireland needs a morally upright government that enacts laws based on decency, charity, and common sense.

Why is she pushing such an immoral and offensive agenda?

It is an affront to the family, which is the backbone of society.
