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.

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.

It appears that the Justices of the US Supreme Court give a kind of solemn reception to their employees every 5 years in office : 5, 10, 15, and so on. You will be pleased to know that Justice Kennedy, who also follows the custom, has just given such a reception, for year… 29.
Does this mean he is planning to announce his imminent retirement? That would be very good news. Continue reading “US Supreme Court: new vacancy soon?”
The LGBT Agenda is pitched by its ideological supporters as an expansion of civil rights, but it becomes increasingly clear that in reality it provides a tool for spiteful sodomites to harass and vilify their real or perceived opponents. The question is whether that is not the true intention.
The Supreme Court agreed on Monday to hear an appeal from a Colorado baker who disagreed with the notion of same-sex “marriage” who had lost a discrimination case for refusing to create a cake to celebrate such an aberration. Continue reading “US Supreme Court to hear case on sodo-“wedding” cake”
Admittedly, there may be many good reasons to be critical of new US President Trump (as this blog has pointed out already during his election campaign), or of his planned immigration policy. But the true problem of the US is not the President. The problem is the judiciary.
This is from yesterday’s New York Times:
A federal appeals court refused Thursday to reinstate President Trump’s revised travel ban, saying it “drips with religious intolerance, animus and discrimination.” Continue reading “This is how politicised the US judiciary is”
Donald Trump is certainly not perfect, but…
The US President’s recent appointments of ten federal judges of various types – all of them in the mould of Judge Gorsuch – shows once again that the man is serious about the return of sanity in American judicial courts. The number of vacancies is higher than usual, possibly because Obama, having lost control of the Senate, preferred to wait for the November 2016 elections (which the Democrats expected to win rather than lose) rather than appoint decent judges. Trump’s victory and (narrow) majority in the Senate now allows him to help shape the federal courts for decades to come, through the appointment of young judges with impeccable credentials.
This is another example of how important Trump’s unexpected victory was not only for the United States, but for Western Civilisation in general.
Following the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch as a new member of the Supreme Court of the United States, there are now speculations that soon there could be another vacancy to be filled: allegedly, Justice Anthony Kennedy is considering retirement. While the appointment of Gorsuch meant that one allegedly “conservative” judge, Antonin Scalia, was replaced by another, the possible replacement of Justice Kennedy, who is 80 years old, could be a real game changer.
