Same-sex marriage case before Romanian Constitutional Court

September 19, 2016


A case involving homosexual marriage currently stands before the Romanian Constitutional Court. Romanian rights activist Adrian Coman and American graphic designer Claibourn Robert Hamilton have petitioned the court to legally recognize them as married, reports the Associated Press.

To recognize the union would be “revolutionary,” says journalist Dan Turturica, as the vast majority of Romanians remain staunchly against the recognition and legalization of gay marriage, 85% of the population being members of the Romanian Orthodox Church.

Proposals towards this end have been repeatedly rejected by parliament. In 2015 Patriarch Daniel of the Romanian Orthodox Church called upon the governing body to reject the third such proposal in recent years, noting that the Romanian Constitution (Art. 48) and the Civil Code (Art. 258) both understand marriage as between a man and a woman.

In 2016 the Coalition for Family collected three million signatures in support of a constitutional amendment to more strictly identify marriage as being only between one man and one woman—an initiative supported by the Romanian Orthodox Church.

A ruling on the present case is expected Tuesday, with political commentators predicting the case will be rejected.

Please, please , please NEVER change. As we know, marriage is only between a man and a women and this will never change in the eyes of GOD. It also should NEVER change in the eyes of men, women.

I'd recommend the Russian documentary ''Sodom'' - Russia Insider posted it on youtube. Really is quite an eye opener.
