Romanian Referendum on the Definition of “Family”: European Forum of LGBT Christian Groups Appalled by Romanian Orthodox Church Support, Urges Boycott
The European Forum of LGBT Christian Groups is extremely concerned by the upcoming referendum in Romania on 6 and 7 October 2018, which will determine whether to alter the currently neutral definition of “family” to one including only married, different-sex couples.
The European Forum fully supports a boycott of the referendum called for by activists in Romania and by ILGA Europe and urges the Romanian Orthodox Church to withdraw its support for such a divisive, discriminatory proposal.
