My very own soon-to-be husband Actor, ally and proud Irishman Colin Farrell has spoken out and stated that the Catholic Church got it wrong when it criticized the recent decision by voters in Ireland to legalize gay marriage.
“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]? A dark day in the history of a country is internal civil conflict and war and bloodshed. It was a great day.” the smoking hot Irish actor, said this weekend.
Colin who has a gay brother, has been an outspoken ally and advocate of LGBT rights.
Before the vote, his brother, Eamonn, had to leave Ireland to legally marry his husband, Steven.
“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,” the “True Detective” star told E! about his brother. “I’m sure he will be married [in Ireland] within the next year. He got married in Vancouver seven or eight years ago to his husband, but I think it’s time he’ll enjoy a home-grown celebration.”
God love you Colin. I do.

Super hot rugby stud and straight LGBT rights ally Ben Cohen in an interview with the UK’s Daily Mirror said that he would have loved to be part of Strictly Come Dancing, the UK’s version of Dancing With The Stars first same-sex dancing couple and was hoping to be paired up with gay Latin and Ballroom dance pro Robin Windsor.
UK’s Mirror reports:
“I’ve no qualms dancing with a woman or a man. Kristina will be easier to pick up though…I like to break down stereotypes.”
Said Windsor: “He kept saying to me, ‘I hope they put me with you’ … He’s amazing, the things he has done for the gay community. I adore him.”
We ALL adore Ben.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go take a very cold shower.
