Hoje a Irlanda, um país de forte presença Católica, entrou para a história ao se tornar o primeiro país no mundo todo a legalizar o casamento de pessoas do mesmo sexo através do voto popular.
Um referendo foi realizado para pedir a opinião da população e o vencedor foi o “SIM”, com mais de 60% dos votos. Dessa forma, a Constituição do país será alterada para aprovar o casamento gay, algo inédito.
Músicos como Juliette Lewis, Sam Smith, Paloma Faith e Rob Thomas se manifestaram a respeito do resultado no Twitter e você pode ver as suas declarações logo abaixo.

Congratulations Ireland! ✌️??
May the 'moral' compass of the catholic church continue to be discarded for the moral 'sat nav' of science.

Ireland did it! The 1st country to legalize marriage equality by popular vote, but they won't be the last! What an incredible accomplishment
