Romania Close to Ban on Same-Sex ‘Marriage’

The Romanian Chamber of Deputies has voted in favor of a proposal to amend the Constitution to ensure that marriage is defined as the union of one man and one woman.

The proposal, led by a group called Coalition for Family, passed with 232 votes in favor, 22 against and 13 abstentions. The group had collected three million signatures in support of this initiative last year.

The Romanian Constitution defines the family as the “freely consented marriage between spouses.” It was written during an earlier period in its history when “spouses” always implied marital relationships as between one man and one woman.

Good on Romania!

    God bless all of Eastern Europe for continuing to (at least try to) keep things sane.

      Yes! If I were Eastern Orthodox, I swear I’d consider moving there…

    Orthodoxy with its beautiful cathedrals, clothing, basso profondo singing with reformed theology will seriously get me to join.

    Eastern Europe is the future of Europe. Literally.

      Indeed. I think having suffered more under Islam than the West did, they’re more alert to the dangers of it. And they see the importance of staying strong in their own faith, so that puts them in a position to better oppose progressivism, too. Win-win!
