Croatia Passes Constitutional Amendment Affirming Natural Marriage
Washington, DC—Recently citizens of Croatia overwhelmingly passed a Constitutional Amendment, 66% to 34%, affirming marriage as one man and one woman.
Earlier this year, the Croatian government drafted a bill that would create homosexual “life partners.” Recognizing this as a step towards same-sex marriage, the Catholic Church organized the citizens’ referendum. The citizens stood strong against government, media, and even international pressure.
“The Obama administration is working to undermine marriage and family around the world,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel.
According to a White House fact sheet outlining President Obama’s actions, Advancing LGBT Rights at Home and Abroad, the Obama administration is actively proliferating homosexuality around the world:
Working with the Global Equality Fund, LGBT Global Development Partnership, and government and private-sector partners to train LGBT leaders;
Working with our embassies overseas and civil society on the ground to develop strategies to advance LGBT status in countries around the world;
Supporting resolutions specific to LGBT issues;
Cosponsoring the UN Human Rights Council resolution on LGBT rights; and
Ensuring that LGBT persons are included in broader human rights resolutions.
In 2014 the United States will host an international conference of homosexual donors and activists to coordinate and strategize LGBT international public policy initiatives.
“The memories of so-called ‘progressive’ regimes controlling society are fresh in the minds of Eastern Europeans. They know if the people stand united, they can overcome these ‘progressive’ ideals that wreak havoc on families and communities,” Staver points out. Croatia joins Serbia, Montenegro, Poland, Hungry, Lithuania, Bulgaria, and Latvia in passing laws to affirm natural marriage.
“President Obama’s anticolonial ideology is shrinking America’s influence in national political affairs, but he is a colonist when it comes to forcing his anti-God and anti-values ideology upon foreign countries. Obama’s ideology is morally bankrupt and anti-American,” says Staver.
