Brian Silva Speaks Regarding Historic Marriage Equality Vote in Ireland

23 June 2015, Marriage Equality USA Executive Director Brian Silva speaks with AlJazeera regarding the history-making marriage equality vote in Ireland!

When asked if the vote in Ireland might have any effect on the outcome at SCOTUS here in the U.S., Silva responded, "Every win helps to build a stronger case for states here; for other countries in the world."

Talking about Ireland's history and tradition of Catholicism, Silva noted, "What we're showing is that people can still have their faith and be strong in it, but you can also have a country that treats people equally. Those two things are not mutually exclusive, they don't have to be in opposition."
