EARLIER TODAY, DCU media lecturer Steve Conlon posted an image of this leaflet on Twitter.
He said it was handed to a member of a family in Wicklow.
The leaflet purports to be part of a Christian campaign for a vote against marriage equality in the upcoming referendum.
It asks “Should children be exposed to sounds of sodomy?” and adds: “Should the sounds of sodomy echo in the halls of a Christian home?”
The leaflet does not identify an individual or organisation behind it, and it has not been possible to confirm its authenticity as part of an anti-marriage-equality campaign – or how many people received it.
But Twitter knows a catchy slogan when it sees it. And before long…
There were Simon and Garfunkel references
There were future predictions
There were programming ideas
There was sympathy
Some novices requested guidance
While others just thought of the children
Finally, there was a minor alteration to the Angelus
But the greatest revelation of all was that there is actually a German metal band called Sounds of Sodomy. Obviously.
As Joe O’Shea - who discovered this – observes, they even shout: “WIR WAREN SOUNDS OF SODOMY”:
(That song’s title translates as “The Smegma Koala”, by the way. Don’t ask us.)
The sounds of sodomy are everywhere.
