Eamon McGee has campaigned for a ‘yes’ vote in the upcoming referendum.A NUMBER of people walked out of a Mass in protest at comments made by a priest during a sermon on gay marriage.Father John Britto spoke out against gay marriage during a sermon in Annagry on Saturday night.And he told the congregation that Gaoth Dobhair footballer Eamon McGee was wrong to back the Yes campaign in May’s referendum on same sex marriages. A number of people attending the Mass objected to the comments and left.“A few people walked out; Father Britto was giving a very robust sermon on gay marriage and said McGee was wrong (to support the Yes campaign),” said a mother who was at the Mass.Members of one family were at the Mass for an anniversary of a dead relative. They are said to have found the sermon upsetting.The incident came just days after the Donegal defender backed the Yes campaign in the referendum. A Catholic organisation criticised McGee on social media. “The reaction has been more than positive. A Catholic organisation was ribbing me on Twitter and asking why the GAA was taking a stand on this,” said Éamon.“It’s a societal issue rather than a political issue but the majority of it has been supportive and I think it’s a good opportunity too for people to talk about it. It just shows you there’s that bit of open-mindedness there.“There’s no point lying about it: there’s certain aspects of GAA folk that are traditionalists, have Catholic viewpoints and are old school. They will view this with a bit of suspicion, this lifestyle. Maybe that’s 20-30% of them, 30% maximum. The majority of the GAA are coming on now to it.”McGee told a press conference last month that if he was lucky enough to have children he didn’t want one of them asking him in the future why he didn’t vote Yes.
