What happened in the Irish vote for same-sex marriage?

A couple of weeks ago the predominately Catholic nation of Ireland voted overwhelmingly to legalize so-called same-sex marriage.  Why? What happened in Ireland and does it bode any warning for the United States? And finally, what was the role the Church played in the Irish vote and what lessons can we learn from it?
Deacon Fournier
Joining us this Tuesday to discuss these issues will be Deacon Keith A. Fournier, founder and chairman of Common Good Foundation and Common Good Alliance and a regular contributor to The Stream.
