The collection of signatures for the European Citizen’s Initiative “Mum Dad & Kids” will end today at midnight, one year after its inception. While the latest report, which dates back to the beginning of February, indicated that by then “more than 600.000” had been collected, it is entirely possible, if not likely, that, thanks to a strong mobilisation in the last weeks, the threshold of overall 1. million signatures will have been surpassed, once all on-line and paper signatures are counted together.

Same-sex civil partnerships (and not, as Politico and other media falsely report, “marriages”) between sodomites have become legal in Slovenia, with a law coming into effect today that gives the mock “marriages” of sodomites largely the same status as to the future-ensuring genuine marriages, which are those between one man and one woman.
This law was adopted by the Slovenian Parliament in a truly provocative show of arrogance against the will of citizens, who in a referendum held in December 2015 had, with a clear majority of 63% v. 37% rejected this indecent “reform” project. The 2015 referendum was already the second popular vote on the subject, with a referendum held in 2012 leading to the same outcome. Continue reading
Nils Muižnieks, the current “Human Rights Commissioner” of the Council of Europe, misuses the prestige, the resources, and easy access to the media that are associated with his function to promote the legal recognition of same-sex “marriages” between sodomites, an issue for which very obviously he holds no mandate. He is doing so on the basis of spurious claim that sodomite-“marriage” is a “human right” awaiting to be discovered.
Here is his grotesque “Human Rights Comment”, published on the Council of Europe’s website. Continue reading
The pro-family European Citizens’ Initiative “Mum Dad & Kids” reports to have crossed the threshold of 600.000 signatures. The goal of 1 million, to be collected within one year, is still within reach. The collection of signatures continues until 3 April.
The European Parliament adopted a resolution on 2 February which urged the EU Commission to require all 28 EU Member States to recognise each other’s adoption certificates automatically. While claiming to be about helping parents and children, hidden in the text are dangerous aims to oblige all Member States to de facto recognise same-sex adoptions, even if illegal in their own country.

One of the most appalling miscarriages of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR), a Chamber Judgment through which the Court’s Second Chamber would de facto have turned surrogacy and illegal child trafficking into a “human right” has fortunately been overturned: a Grand Chamber of the Court that has reviewed the case Paradiso and Campanelli v. Italy today found that – contrary to the Chamber’s assessment one year ago – the decision of Italian authorities to withdraw from the custody of an Italian couple a child that was not biologically related to either of them, but which they had bought from a Russian “reproduction clinic” for the price of 45.000 Euro, did not violate anyone’s “human rights”.

The European Citizens’ Initiative “Mum Dad & Kids”, which campaigns against the arbitrary re-definition of “marriages” and “families”, has, eight months after its commencement, already fulfilled one of the two criteria to make it successful, surpassing a national threshold in at least seven Member States of the EU. In total, the number of signatures so far collected is estimated at between 400.000 and 500.000, but could also be higher, given that many signatures collected on paper reach the organizers only with some delay. The initiative now looks set to easily meet its official goal of crossing the threshold of one million signatures by 3 April 2017, one year after its commencement.
Yet there seems a conflict to be going on behind the scenes between the organizers and the European Commission, Continue reading
