While the U.S. seems bound and determined to destroy natural marriage and family, other nations around the world have figured out that radically deconstructing these fundamental cornerstone institutions – institutions necessary to the survival of any healthy society – will have devastating effects in the long-term.
Slovakia is the latest such nation. Lawmakers there have constitutionally banned counterfeit “same-sex marriage.”
Yahoo News reports:
Slovakia’s parliament on Wednesday amended its constitution to define marriage as a union between man and woman, effectively closing the door to same-sex marriage and stirring protest among rights groups.
The amendment, drafted by leftist Prime Minister Robert Fico’s Smer-Social Democraty party and the opposition Christian Democrats, was backed by 102 lawmakers while 18 voted against it.
The amendment required a two-thirds majority in the 150-member parliament.
“The marriage amendment will not bring about any drastic changes, it only seals in the constitution what is already defined by law,” said Fico, whose Smer is a member of the traditionally liberal Party of European Socialists group in the European Parliament.
The European Union’s newest member Croatia outlawed same-sex marriage in a referendum last year, triggering a similar constitutional amendment, but swiftly passed a civil union law for same-sex couples.
No form of same-sex civil union is legal in Slovakia, where more than 70 percent of the population of 5.4 million is Christian, according to a 2011 census. …
Same-sex marriage is legal in a handful of the 27 other EU states including Britain and France, while civil unions are recognized by the Czech Republic, Germany and others.
Let’s pray that this pro-family trend across the world continues. As the radical “LGBT” agenda continues to weaken America, obliterate religious liberty and hurt and confuse countless children and families, we can at least take solace in the fact that much of the world has not been duped by this demonic incursion of sexual anarchy.
Still, come what may, know this: In the end, Truth wins out.
And Truth has a name: Yeshua, Christ Jesus.
