Grave scandal in Malta, a small country not so long ago considered a bulwark of Christianity, in which the slaughtering of babies was (and still is) strictly forbidden, and divorce didn’t exist (it has been introduced just a few years ago).

According to a report on EurActiv France, the French government is working hard to establish a common EU position before the next Foreign Affairs Council meeting on 26 May.

The Parliament of the tiny island republic of Malta has adopted a law that must be the most insane piece of legislation ever to have been enacted in that country: a “Gender Identity, Gender Expression And Sex Characteristics Act” that entitles everybody to have his or her sex re-defined on the basis of merely subjective sentiments.
