In the last years we have already seen a number of extreme and deliberate mis-interpretations of constitutional or international human rights law in order to promote abortion, euthanasia, child-trafficking, and sodomy. This is how cultural wars are fought: the aggressor (in this case the sodomy-cum-baby-slaughtering lobby) occupies the hills and then starts to fire missiles from above…
This strategy, which takes entire legal systems as its hostage was most notoriously successful at the US Supreme Court (with decisions such as Roe v. Wade on abortion and Obergefell on sodo-“marriage”), where one judge famously said that “you don’t imagine what five people can do when they happen to be Supreme Court Justices”, referring to the seemingly unlimited power the judiciary enjoys in the US. Mor recent examples include the Austrian Constitutional Court, which sought to impose the legalization of sodo-“marriage” precisely at the moment when it became clear that there was no parliamentary majority for it, or the CJEU, which seems to be preparing a similar attempt. But no case of counter-legal, illegal, or even criminal judicial activism has so far been as extreme as this week’s decision by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, through which the attempt is made to oblige all Latin American countries to legalize sodomy, sodo-“marriage”, and polygamy – all in one decision.

If there is something that clearly can be deduced from last month’s national elections in Austria, it is that the electorate didn’t consider the introduction of sodo-“marriage” a great priority. The parties with the greatest increase in votes were those who clearly stated that marriage is – and should remain – a union between one man and one woman: the conservative “Austrian People’s Party (ÖVP) and the national conservative “Freedomite Party” (FPÖ). Having increased their share of votes by aggregated 13%, these two groups now dispose of a solid majority in the National Assembly and look set to form the next government. By stark contrast, the group that – already by picking lesbian activist Ulrike Lunacek as their lead candidate – most aggressively turned sodo-“marriage” into a core part of their electoral program lost more than two thirds of its votes and all of the parliamentary seats it had previously held.
As a result, a parliamentary majority for introducing sodo-“marriage” seems completely out of reach within the next five years. But despite this, it could nevertheless become a reality within the next few weeks.
The reason is that the Constitutional Court (Verfassungsgerichtshof) has, in a surprising about-face, announced that it has doubts regarding the constitutionality of the legal definition of marriage set out in Article 44 of the Civil Code, and intends to subject that definition to an examination ex officio, with the likely outcome that the part of it stating that the two spouses must be “of different sex” will be removed.

Following the outcome of last week’s elections to the Bundestag, Angela Merkel, despite heavy losses, seems set to remain at the helm of Germany’s federal government. The question, however, is with whom se will be able to form a coalition. Continue reading “Weitermerkeln”
Northern Ireland’s prohibition of gay “marriage” does not violate same-sex couples’ rights, Belfast’s high court ruled Thursday.
The court dismissed two cases challenging the ban, delivering a setback to gay “marriage” advocates in the only part of the United Kingdom still upholding a ban.
Barring same-sex “marriage” in Northern Ireland does not contravene human rights, the judge ruled, “because that right does not exist.”

Estonia, which took over the six-month rotating Presidency of the Council of the EU on 1 July, has decided to use its time in the EU driving seat to promote same-sex “families” despite there being no legal basis for such initiatives. The matter is due for discussion at a meeting of Ministers of Employment, Social Affairs, Family and Gender Equality on 19-20 July in Tallinn.

Displaying the same lack of backbone in face of the powerful LGBT lobby as conservative parties across the EU, the Maltese National Party (NP) has signalled its intent to go along with the Labour Government’s planned introduction of same-sex “marriage” in Malta. Continue reading “Maltese “Christian Democrats” cave in to LGBT lobby”
Opponents of sodo-“marriage” in the German Federal Diet (Bundestag) are considering the possibility of filing a complaint with the Federal Constitutional Court (Bundesverfassungsgericht, BVG) in order to challenge the constitutionality of the Diet’s decision to re-define marriage. How will the BVG decide? If its standing case law can be relied upon, it will have no choice but to invalidate the new law.
But the dilemma is: while everyone is fully aware that sodo-“marriage” is patently unconstitutional, it is nevertheless expected that the constitutional judges, if asked, will bend the constitution. Once again, it becomes palpable how the LGBT agenda corrodes state and society.
