The Finnish parliament has narrowly approved a law to recognize counter-natural “marriages” between persons of the same sex, thus making the country the latest victim of this self-destructive trend that has befallen the West.
Gay couples in Finland have been able to enter into registered partnerships since 2002, but until now the country was the only in the Nordic region not to allow same-sex marriage. Finland is now the 12th European state to do so. At the same time, there is an increasing trend in European countries to adopt constitutional amendments clarifying that marriages can only be concluded between a man and a woman. The issue is thus increasingly divisive – unnecessarily so if one considers that only a small minority of those identifying as “gay” or “lesbian” actually want to “marry”.
In the vote, 105 members of parliament supported the legal amendment while 92 opposed it.
