Romania stiff-arms same-sex 'marriage'

Charlie Butts - OneNewsNow -

Romania's Parliament has moved to protect traditional marriage.

Roger Kiska, a member of Alliance Defense Fund's legal counsel, is stationed in Europe. He tells OneNewsNow that Romania adopted a strong civil code enshrining traditional marriage in law. "It's defined throughout the code -- spouse as between a man and a woman," he explains. "It forbids these backdoor, so-called same-sex 'marriages' where Romanian citizens or foreigners come into the country and ask that their marriage be recognized by the country. It also does the same with civil unions."

Romania is a super religious country with very traditional views - I was not even allowed to hold a baby (and I was the God father) in a Romanian church as I was not Orthodox - the Gay march here had more police than walkers on it! It is a tough place to be Gay!
