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.

It seems that in Romania the political class is finally accepting that the people should have their say on marriage. Last week 2 Senate committees (Human Rights and Equality) voted in favour of the constitutional amendment to define marriage as a union between one man and one woman, thus excluding misinterpretations or re-definitions. This amendment was proposed by a citizens’ initiative and supported by an amazing 3 million of Romanian citizens. So now there is just one more major hurdle to be taken, the Legal Affairs Committee, before the final vote in plenary. It is now hoped that the draft amendment will pass in the Senate with a large majority, similar to the one we got in the Chamber of Deputies last month (232-22 votes). This would clear the way for a popular referendum, which widely is expected to accept the proposed amendment.
The European Parliament’s Sodomy Lobby, also known as “LGBT Intergroup”, appears to have a purely instrumental attitude towards democracy. When, back in 2015, Ireland held a constitutional referendum to introduce sodo-“marriage”, the group was not at all critical against such a referendum being held, but on the contrary welcomed the fact that “the first time that equal marriage has been adopted through a referendum.” But now, as more than 3 million Romanian citizens have supported a petition for a constitutional amendment that would enshrine the correct and natural understanding of marriage, namely that of a union between a man and a woman, into the country’s constitution, the sodomite MEPs have changed their views, adopting an overtly anti-democratic attitude:they have published an open letter to Romanian Members of Parliament, pressuring them to block the democratic process.

It appears that Romanians will soon get the chance to vote for a constitutional amendment that would protect marriage and family against re-definition. Continue reading “Will Romania at last get the constitutional protection of marriage that 3,1 million citizens have been calling for?”
The cities with the biggest turnout were Bacău (10,000 participants), Oradea (11,000 participants) and Bucharest (8,000 participants).
Compared to the 2016 edition, the number of organizing cities has risen by 26% (in 2016 the march took place in 110 cities), while the number of participants has risen by almost 50% (in 2016 there were around 75,000 participants in total).

For quite a while now, representatives of the EU and its institutions have relentlessly expressed their “concern” over the political situation in Hungary and Poland, accusing the respective governments of undermining what is vaguely described as the “rule of law”.
Given these antecedents, it is astonishing to observe that the current situation in Romania does not seem to trigger any such concerns.

The Romanian Constitutional Court has announced that it will refer questions to the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) in the case of a same-sex couple who wish to be recognised as spouses in Romania.
The Constitutional Court will seek clarification on whether a same-sex couple, “married” in Belgium, is entitled to be recognised as “spouses” in Romania by way of application of the EU Directive on family reunification with a EU citizen.
