In times of increasing public resistance against their agenda, the LGBT lobby increasingly relies on the judicial activism of like-minded judges to impose what they cannot obtain through democratic means.
While the “strategic litigation” of the lobby so far has focused on the European Court of Human Rights (which, thanks to its relentless support for radical agendas on abortion and sodomy has by now depleted its once considerable prestige), it is now trying to involve the Court of Justice of the EU in its attempts to overturn the moral order. This is done through a legal action (Case C – 673/16 Coman and others) in which, following a request from the Romanian Constitutional Court, the CJEU is being asked to interpret the word “spouse” in the context of EU law on freedom of movement.

There still are some laws in force in Germany that provide for – albeit feeble – protection of unborn children’s lives. The problem is that, given the strong support of mass media and many politicians for the abortionist agenda, judges seldom find the courage to enforce them. This week however, a brave judge in Giessen has condemned a mass-murderess of unborn babies, Dr. Kristina Hänel, to pay a fine of 6.000 Euro for having offered abortion on her commercial website.
The baby-slaughterer is unrepentant and is now collecting signatures for a petition to overturn the law. In contempt of the Court, she still has not removed the baby-slaughtering propaganda from her website.
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.

The UN Human Rights Committee has thrown away whatever little remained of its prestige and credibility by issuing a new draft for a General Comment on Article 6 (Right to Life) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights that explicitly excludes unborn children from being holders of that rights. The move, which is ontologically and legally flawed, has been made to suggest to the public that mothers may kill their unborn children in good conscience.
The UN Human Rights Committee has no authority to legislate, nor does it have any judicial powers. However, due to the prestige it once possessed, its interpretive “General Comments” are often referred to when interpreting the scope and meaning of human rights.
A second reading of the text is likely to take place in March.

Green MEP Helga Trüpel‘s party membership has been suspended after press reports about her having made “homophobic” ad hominem remarks against Jens Spahn, an openly homosexual politician from the conservative CDU. Apparently Mrs. Trüpel expressed concern over the possibility that Germany might soon be ruled by “that right-wing gay Mr. Spahn” if Merkel has to step down after her dramatic electoral defeat in September.
It is not clear yet whether Mrs. Trüpel will be allowed to retain her seat as an MEP.
