Irish anti-gay marriage ad by Catholic-led Ionia Institute is mocked by parody

Above: Sunday's "Yes" rally in Dublin supporting Irish
marriage equality referendum to be held May 22nd. Via RTE
Note: the author of the Ionia parody ad below later confessed that he mistook Sister Sledge for the Pointer Sisters.
     The Ionia Institute sued Irish state television for airing a broadcast in which gay drag performer Panti Bliss called it a collection of homophobes. The legal action garnered Ionia 85 thousand euros in an out-of-court settlement, which in turn engendered criticism of the TV network for capitulating to the Catholic-led and staffed anti-gay marriage pressure group rather than fighting it in court.
