uioAproape 80 de organizații care apără drepturile familiei, din Europa și de pe alte continente, au remis parlamentarilor croați o scrisoare deschisă de sprijin pentru referendumul constituțional ce va avea loc în această țară duminică, 1 decembrie. Tema acestui referendum este înscrierea în legea fundamentală a familiei întemeiată pe căsătoria între o femeie și un bărbat. Referendumul a fost convocat după colectarea de către coaliția de ONG-uri conservatoare „În numele familiei” a 750.000 de semnături de la alegătorii croați.

Referendumul are o miză importantă, ambele tabere – lobby-ul homosexual și apărătorii familiei – fiind cu ochii pe Croația. Dacă apărătorii familiei vor avea succes, falia existentă deja între Europa de Vest, căzută fără speranță în mâinile propagandei homosexuale, și Estul în care „căsătoriile” și formele alternative de „familie homosexuală” sunt ca și inexistente.

Inițiativa „În numele familiei” a reușit colectarea a 750.000 de semnături, mai mult de 10% din populația Croației, ca răspuns la pretențiile crescânde ale homosexualilor sprijiniți de SUA de a instituționaliza „căsătoria” și filiația pentru cuplurile de același sex.Semnăturile au fost strânse în doar 2 săptămâni, cu implicarea directă a Bisericii Catolice.

De remarcat că parlamentarii de la Zagreb s-au lăsat greu convinși să fixeze data referendumului și să asigure logistica necesară, guvernul de stânga intenționând chiar o contra-măsură de legiferare a așa-ziselor „parteneriate civile” pentru homosexuali. Efectul acesteia va fi însă mult limitat de noile prevederi constituționale.

77 Human Rights organisation support constitutional referendum in Croatian

Dear MEPs of the Republic of Croatia,

On Sunday, December 1, the citizens of your country will be called to a referendum on the question whether marriage shall be “a life union of a woman and a man”.

We, the undersigned, as representatives of 77 human rights organizations from all over Europe and beyond, welcome the referendum as an effort to safeguard and strengthen the most basic institutions of human civilization: marriage and the natural family.

While there is no EU competence with regards to the definition of marriage, we would like to encourage you to stand with your fellow citizens and support them in every possible way as their official representatives in the Europe Parliament. The referendum is perfectly compatible with Croatian and EU law.

There has been overwhelming mobilisation at the grass-­‐roots level on behalf of the institution of traditional marriage; this does not constitute any act of discrimination, as some have suggested. On the contrary, it is a reflection of the understanding that people have that marriage can be nothing more than a union between a man and woman, and that this is a basic good for society as a whole.

Accepting this understanding of marriage does not take away anyone’s rights. It simply preserves and protects the best and most necessary context for the procreation of children, and for the raising and formation of future generations.

The objectives of the December 1 referendum are solidly backed by international law. It reflects both the maturity of the Croatian people and of Croatian democracy itself, as it truly aims at the common good—not just for one part of society but for all and for the country as a whole.

We, the representatives of human rights organizations from across Europe and beyond, firmly support Croatia in this referendum. And we congratulate you for having citizens who are publicly engaged and who actively participate in your country’s democracy.
