In his Legal Opinion delivered today, Advocate General Yves Bot proposes that the Court should dismiss the legal actions brought by Slovakia and Hungary against a controversial EU decision to mandatorily relocate asylum-seekers according to a fixed quota among the EU Member States. See the press release here. Continue reading
It seems that at last some politicians in Europe are waking up to realize that something has gone seriously wrong with the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR), an institution that in radical contradiction to its mandate is turning into the most dangerous threat to human rights in Europe. MEPs from 15 EU Member States have today published an open letter in which they criticize the Court for its Inadmissibility Decision in the case of Charles Gard and Others v. the United Kingdom (Application no. 39793/17), expressing their “deepest concerns about the outrageous outcome of Charlie’s case, which infringes Europe’s most fundamental values, particularly the right to life, the right to human dignity and personal integrity.” Continue reading
The European Parliament will today hold a special ceremony to honour recently-deceased French politician Simone Veil. The many tributes being paid to Mrs Veil focus on her survival of the holocaust to go on to be elected the first President of the directly-elected European Parliament in 1979. They conveniently ignore the fact that this is the woman who legalised abortion in France. Continue reading
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.
Two parliamentary votes on same-sex “marriage” have taken place this week in Germany and Austria. In Germany, the cause of sodomy has triumphed, while in Austria it was once more defeated. Continue reading
Europe’s most dangerous anti-human-rights institution, otherwise known as the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR), has released yet another incredible decision through which it totally undermines both the human rights that it should be protecting, and by consequence its own position as a guardian of those rights.
The Decision in the case of Charles Gard and Others v. the United Kingdom (Application no. 39793/17), issued by an (unidentified) “majority” of the seven judges of the Court’s First Chamber (so that the public will never know who is responsible…) has declared inadmissible the complaint of two parents who wanted to protect their child from being euthanized in a UK hospital. The Court found that it was “in the best interest” of the child, which had been diagnosed with a very rare and severe mitochondrial disease, to be left to die, and that the persons who were entitled to make that decision were the doctors, not the parents. As a result of this decision, all life-sustaining treatment (supply of water and nutrition) has been stopped, and the parents have been left to watch their child being starved to death.

All of a sudden, without any prior warning, Angela Merkel has now indicated (in her typical mumbo-jumbo language) that she would accept a free vote on sodo-“marriage” in which all Members of the German Bundestag will be “free to follow their conscience”.
This means that very soon – perhaps even still this week? – Germany will follow other European countries in defacing marriage and family and elevating sodomy to an honourable status. That looks like a rather casual way of dealing with, and in fact getting rid of, our civilization’s most fundamental institution. Continue reading
