ABSTRACT
The article presents comments on the Constitution which concerns on marriage and family, to be voted for the people in Ireland in June 1937. It is believed that the Constitution could attract many atheists like Joseph Stalin because it falls out of line in the modern thought by the protection it offers for marriage and family. It states that the Constitution proposed by Ireland will be contempt by men who hate God because of its provision that acknowledges all the people's obligation to God.
