Northern Ireland made history yesterday by appointing its first ever female First Minister, who is also the youngest leader in the province’s history – but it appears this won’t change much for the progression of social issues such as gay marriage.

Arlene Foster, the former Finance Minister, took over from her former boss Peter Robinson as DUP leader, after he retired from parliamentary life on health grounds.

Not wanting equality in Northern Ireland

Denying equality is not very strong Christian values, we rather call it very strong “devils” work. For Arlene Foster it’s more important to please the people with “faith” on her side, than listen to the other side of the argument. She is not First Minister for all people of Northern Ireland, she only for those that has her opinion.
