British Prime Minister Promises to Push Same-Sex Civil Unions Across EU

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown announced in an interview with homosexual magazine Attitude Wednesday that he will push for same-sex civil unions to be recognized in all EU countries, particularly in Eastern Europe.

“I’m fighting to get all the countries in Europe to recognize civil partnerships carried out in Britain,” he said.

“We want countries where that hasn’t been the case – especially in eastern Europe – to recognize them.”

EU countries France, Germany and Austria, come January 1, already have civil partnership laws, while same-sex marriage is legal in Belgium, Sweden, Spain and the Netherlands. Brown’s task may be more difficult in eastern European countries; they still defend traditional views of marriage and the family and have been largely resistant to advancements of the LGBT agenda.

“Of course it will be tough,” Brown said, “and will take many years, but that has never ever been a good reason not to fight.”

This just means that those who understand the importance of traditional families and marriage will have to work even harder to protect marriage.

    This is a good point , I recently asked the embassy in Luxembourg whether our British civil partnership would be recognised there as the equvalent of theirs and got this amazing answer, unblievable!

    “I would like to inform you that the British civil partnership is not regarded as the equivalent of the civil union in Luxembourg. Several enquiries on the matter have highlighted the fact that whereas the British civil partnership concerns same sex partners and is equivalent to a marriage, the Luxembourg civil union concerns same sex as well as different sex partnerships and is therefore not equivalent to marriage.

    A civil partner under British Law will therefore not have the same rights, for example for immigration, as a married spouse under Luxembourg law.

    I trust this information is of assistance.

    Best regards,

    The reason why God established marriage is for sex to be enjoyed between 2 opposite sex and not same sex. I dont know why on earth you are in support of the union of same sex in marriage. I will advice you to desist from it if you dont want to invite the wrath of God not only on yourself but also on your country.
