Dear Marriage Supporter,
I am happy to report that Slovenia voted by over 63 percent on Sunday to reject so-called same-sex "marriage." The government had rammed through the legislation and had done everything possible to stop traditional marriage and prevent the people from having a direct vote. As occurred to our coalition in Washington, DC and elsewhere, the government claimed that the people had no right to vote on the question because it was about protected "civil rights." Talk about begging the question!
In the end our friends at the coalition For Children and the Slovenian voters are to be commended for stopping what looked like a juggernaut targeting Slovenia to be the first central European country to pass same-sex marriage. Congrats!
Bermuda Needs Your Help!
There are rumors that the government of Bermuda is looking at creating same-sex civil unions — without letting the people have a say through a referendum. It is urgent that the people of Bermuda have the same right to vote on the future of marriage as Slovenia just exercised.
