European Court imposes same-sex marriage across EU

The Court of Justice of the European Union has ordered all EU countries to recognise same-sex marriages, regardless of national laws.

In July, the Court ordered Romania to grant residency to an American man who married a Romanian man in Belgium, even though Romania is one of eight EU nations which do not allow homosexual marriage.

The Coalition for Marriage says: “Such countries now face being forced to recognise extra-territorial same-sex marriages in their immigration and welfare systems despite there being no
democratic mandate to do so.”

In the UK (except Northern Ireland) same-sex marriage was introduced without it being in the governing party’s election manifesto, and without a referendum. In America it was imposed on all states by the Supreme Court.
