Colin Farrell Has The BEST Response To The Catholic Church's Opposition To The Legalization Of Gay Marriage In Ireland!

no title

Colin Farrell has yet again proven he's a man of the people!

As we reported last month, the Irish actor applauded the citizens of Ireland for voting in favor of a law that legalized same-sex marriage on May 22, making it the first country to do so!

However, the groundbreaking ruling wasn't without its detractors.

Notably, the new ordinance was opposed by the Catholic Church.

Over the weekend, the 39-year-old thespian was at the Maui Film Festival where he gave the church a peace of his mind!

He exclaimed:

"It was really funny because one of the arguments when the vote went through was that the church came out and said, 'You know, this was a dark day for Ireland,' and all you could see was literally rainbows everywhere, posters of rainbows, T-shirts of rainbows, men and women hugging, men and men hugging, women and women hugging, and yet cut to, 'This is a dark day in the history of [Ireland].'"

The True Detective star clarifies what a 'dark day' truly is!

"A dark day in the history of a country is internal civil conflict and war and bloodshed."

We couldn't agree more!

The hunk has a personal connection to LGBT rights as his brother Eamon is openly gay and had to leave the country to legally marry his husband.

Farrell said about his sibling:

"He campaigned very and he himself out there. I mean, I was a bit concerned about him, he put himself on the line greatly for a cause that he believes in and a message that he wanted to see brought to the point of being a constitutional change and I'm sure he will be married [in Ireland] within the next year. He got married in Vancouver seven or eights years ago to his husband, but I think it's time he'll enjoy a home grown celebration."

We are so glad Colin is such a vocal advocate for gay marriage and we hope other celebs follow suit!

Julianne Moore & Ellen Page Were Banned From Filming At A Catholic School Because Their Film Is About A Lesbian Couple!

julianne moore and ellen page banned from shooting at a catholic school wow

Well this is super disappointing to hear about!

Ellen Page and Julianne Moore are currently shooting a powerful film titled Freeheld, where they play a lesbian couple pretty much fighting for basic human rights.

Well, when looking for a location to shoot a particular scene, the scouts found Salesian High School in the New York area, which is a Catholic school, that could pass as a town hall.

Sounds perfect, right?

Well, after initially approving the shoot to happen on the school's grounds, the principal John Flaherty let one of the films producers, Michael Shamberg, know that they had changed their minds.

Ariana Grande Isn't A Catholic Anymore! The Reason Why Shows Just How Big A Decision It Was For Her! Do YOU Agree With Her Choice?

Well, this is certainly a valid reason to change religion!

Ariana Grande and her brother, Frankie, are very close so it's understandable that she'd reconsider her religion because they rejected him!

The Break Free singer admitted that after being brought up in the Catholic Church, she converted to the Kabbalah faith after they rejected Frankie because he is gay.

Like we said, a totally acceptable reason, right?
