The Croatian Government’s dirty war against marriage

Posted on | November 29, 2013 by J.C. von Krempach, J.D. |

The constitutional referendum that will be held this Sunday in Croatia looks set to become a resounding victory for marriage. But the (ex)communist-led government of the country is mobilizing all it can to persuade people to vote against the proposed amendment that would define marriage as a permanent union between a man and a woman. They finance their campaign with funds taken out of the pockets of the same taxpayers whom they try to manipulate.

In the media, there is now considerable attention for the case of Father Damir Stojic, a well-known priest who exercises his ministry at Zagreb University, and who has very actively supported the campaign to defend marriage. His superiors have requested him to stop preaching on this subject. As it transpired, this order was issued at the direct request of the Ministry of the Interior…

Once again we see that the case for same-sex “marriage” cannot survive in a free and frank discussion. The first objective of the homosexual agitprop is always to curtail public debate and to silence their opponents, be it by gagging orders or, as we have seen in some other cases, through physical violence.

I keep my fingers crossed that the Croatians will bravely overcome this new totalitarianism.
