Slovenia referendum: same-sex marriage not a foregone conclusion

Dec 21, 2015

In the last few days a small Eastern European nation has proved that the complete erosion of marriage in the West is not a foregone conclusion.

Slovenia held a referendum on whether marriage should be defined as a ‘union between two consenting adults’.

Almost two-thirds of voters chose to protect the age-old truth that marriage is between one man and one woman.

Only 37 per cent voted in favour of same-sex marriage.

C4M regrets that this could not have been the case in the UK, where the British public had no opportunity to have their say.

The UK Government was well aware of significant opposition – C4M had hundreds of thousands of signatures – but it bulldozed the legislation through anyway.
