    Slovenian referendum unexpectedly rejects rights for same-sex couples

    Hello! Let me share some good news with you.

    By Bojan Kavcic

    LJUBLJANA — Slovenians voted Sunday against granting gay couples rights similar to those of married heterosexuals, in a referendum forced by conservative groups and the Catholic Church.

    With over 99 percent of ballots counted, the results showed that 54.77 percent of voters rejected a proposed new family code while 44.23 percent backed it, the electoral commission of the eurozone member state announced.

    Motherhood and Fatherhood are both unique and valued, say Slovenians in a referendum

    Yesterday, Slovenia held a post-legislative referendum on the new Family Code that was adopted in the Slovenian parliament in June 2011.


    In a popular vote, 55% of voters rejected the new Family Code and 45% supported the law. Turnout was 30% on a sunny Sunday.

    "The people of Slovenia expressed their belief that motherhood and fatherhood are both unique and represent a fundamental value; for the good of a child," said Aleš Primc, head of the Civil Initiative that proposed the referendum.

    The new Family Code had 309 articles and addresses many issues, but despite intense negotiations over the past two and a half years continued to include serious threats to the family and rights of children.

    Primc explained: "We have always been ready for a compromise solution, but the political parties and the LGBT groups insisted on equalising the position of homosexual and conjugal marriages, including the right to decide upon child-bearing."

    In what turned out to be the most controversial proposal, the new Family Code introduced the unclear path towards complete equalisation of the homosexual and conjugal marriage and the child-adoption for homosexual couples.


    The referendum was held upon an explicit request of the people of Slovenia, who came together in a civil society movement outside the political parties in a "Civil Initiative for the Family and the Rights of the Child."

    The Civil Initiative was in an unenviable position with all major media against it and with the President of Slovenia Danilo Turk declaring himself for the new Family Code, just as did most political parties in the national parliament. The current Slovenian government decided not to participate in the referendum campaign.

    This was a first referendum of this kind in an EU member state and is likely to become an important point of reference for any further legislation in this area in the region of Central Europe.

    This is very important, because it was the first time such issue was decided on a public debate in the context of popular referendum. As the article says, it may become and important point of reference for any further legislation in this area in the region of Central Europe and if the adherents of the homosexual ideology couldn't convince the people of Slovenia, it is even more unlikely they will succeed in other countries with significant Catholic legacy (Slovenia is fanatically secularist and anti-Catholic). Those who were in favour of the new Family Code (homosexual and feminist activists) held an agressive campaign financed by the state and tried to manipulate the public, but it didn't work out. And it's not true that low voter turnout favoured those who opposed the Family Code, it was the other way, those who were for it were all eager to vote, while there was a lot of indiference among people who would rather be against it. It's also interesting to note that the homosexual ideology was rejected in some rural regions, that are stereotipically "communist", which means that not all of the left supports extreme liberalism (there are a lot of "old school" commies here), it's supported only in the urban areas. Another interesting thing is that besides the Catholic Church, also Islamic and Orthodox community leaders encouraged the believers to vote against it, while the representative of the Lutherans openly supported the Family Code. What a shame, and they call themselves "Christians", while supporting liberal social engineering and the destruction of the family. The referendum happened thanks to the Catholic Church, who started the initiative and organizations connected with the Church collected signatures needed to make referendum possible. The advocates of the Family Code opposed the referendum itself, and the leftist president of the republic said that the referendum "undermined the authority of the eurozone country's legislators". This is "democracy" according to them.

    The new Family Code wasn't only about homosexuals, but it also gave social workers much more authority, for example to take a child away from the family if they think it's in "his interest" and it strictly prohibited physical punishment. Basically modern anti-Christian totalitarianism.

    I thought it would be a good idea to post this news around the internet, since I noticed foreign media is not giving the referendum much attention.
