During their plenary session in Brussels this week, Members of the European Parliament expressed disapproval for the insensitive and inappropriate statement made by Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on the death of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. This follows the overt challenge to the gaffe-prone Juncker by his own Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom who publicly rejected her boss’s fawning comments about the major human rights abuser.

There is currently some excitement over Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo having been called “maricon” (“faggot”) by a player of rivalling club Atletico Madrid. Rumours about his sexual orientation appear to have been circulating already for a long time. Awhile ago, FC Bayern Munich was sanctioned by the UEFA when at a Champions League match against Arsenal F.C. fans brought along a transparent calling their opponents “Gay Gunners”.
“Maricon”, no doubt, is a slur. But is “gay”? Continue reading
Earlier this week, the European Commission hosted its 12th annual high-level meeting with religious leaders from across Europe. The group included Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox, Mormon, Jewish and Muslim faith leaders and the theme of this year’s discussion was: “Migration, integration and European values”. Continue reading
Strangely, the World seems to have become blithely unaware of World AIDS Day, which just a few years ago was one of the most important days in the calendar of secular awareness-raising rituals. Neither on the European Commission’s nor on the European Parliament’s websites (and not even at the indefatigable ILGA-Europe or the EP’s Sodomy-Intergroup) does one find any mention of it, and on the streets around Place Lux and R-P Schuman there is a shining absence of people wearing red ribbons and stern faces.

We, too, have little time to spend on this – but for the convenience of our readers, we point back at the post we published last year. It remains still valid.
If you need to curtail free speech, it is because you have lost the debate. The totalitarian pro-abortion and pro-sodomy régime of French president François Hollande is now reverting to the ultima ratio: it seeks to erect a legal firewall around its blatantly anti-human policy to not protect unborn children, submitting for adoption by the National Assembly a bill that would threaten with up to two years of prison and fines of up to €30.000 the mere fact of trying to “dissuade” a woman from having an abortion.

… and inflicts public humiliation and shame on her boss, Jean-Claude Juncker. Continue reading
The sudden departure from the EU scene of European Parliament President, Martin Schulz, came as a big surprise to his own Socialists & Democrats (S&D) Group who had been forced into supporting him for a third term by their Group Chair, Gianni Pittella. Now S&D backbench MEPs, furious at Schulz’ cavalier treatment of his Group, have demanded that Pittella himself run for EP President. Continue reading
