Support the Hungarian and Polish Governments for protecting marriage
The Luxembourg Presidency of the Council of the EU had only 6 months (the last semester of 2015) to promote their agenda.
Among the top priorities of the Luxembourg Presidency was to get adopted new draft regulations on the "Property Consequences of Matrimonial and Registered Partnerships".
And, they tried to have these draft regulations adopted in the meeting of the EU's Justice and Home Affairs Council held on December 3rd.
In plain English, these draft regulations would have the practical effect of forcing all EU member states to legally recognise same-sex "marriages" or registered partnerships which were conducted outside of the member states themselves.
According to these proposed regulations, recognition of these foreign "marriages" or partnerships would be required by every state, no matter whether or not the states, themselves, recognise same-sex "marriages" or registered partnerships in their own Constitution.
In effect, this would have been a coup of member states' family law and Constitutions.
BUT, for its adoption, unnanimous support, of all the member states, was needed.
And, thankfully, the Hungarian and Polish Governments resisted this move and voted against these proposals, which aimed at achieving EU-wide recognition to same-sex "marriages" or registered partnerships, through the back-door.
Indeed, the promoters' plan, to force all member states to recognise same-sex "marriage", was very devious. As alluded to, they planned to do it through the EU's recognition of property rights.
For example, let's say two women were "married" in France, where same-sex "marriage" is recognised by law. Now, let's say this couple moved to Poland, where the Polish Constitution reserves marriage as between one man and one woman. Well, these draft regulations would have forced Poland to recognise the couple's "marriage", based on EU property law, even though it was conducted outside of Poland, and even though it is against the Polish Constitution.
The debate on this issue has been ongoing now for four years on expert level. In that time, and despite the attempts of other recent EU Presidencies, several member states have resisted the same-sex "marriage" agenda, and managed to keep this issue at-bay.
However, the Luxembourg Presidency raised it again.
Although, we all can be satisfied by the outcome so far, the battle is not over yet. Promoters of same-sex "marriage" will bring it up again.
And, this is why we need to show our support as citizens, to those who have stood resolutely for marriage as between one man and one woman.
Let us show, on an international level, that family values are strongly supported by society. It is of utmost importance for us to preserve and protect our values and support those who are willing to stand up for them in the future as well.
We count on your support.
