Conservative law center Liberty Counsel issued a news release Monday noting citizens of Croatia overwhelmingly – 66 percent to 34 percent – passed a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman.
Support for the amendment was organized by the Catholic church in response to a bill “that would create homosexual ‘life partners,’” the group reports.
“The memories of so-called ‘progressive’ regimes controlling society are fresh in the minds of Eastern Europeans. They know if the people stand united, they can overcome these ‘progressive’ ideals that wreak havoc on families and communities,” Liberty Counsel founder and chairman Mat Staver said in the release, blasting the Obama administration for “working to undermine marriage and family around the world” with an ideology that “is morally bankrupt and anti-American.”
Wait. A. Minute.
Are we looking to Croatia as a model for human rights and values? The nation that saw some of the most savage and deadly ethnic cleaning of the past two decades, and that still celebrates that effort with a national holiday? Because that would be pretty remarkable, wouldn’t you say?
I’m not gonna go all Bob Dylan on y’all, but maybe we shouldn’t be taking a page from the Croats on how we do unto others.
