BRUSSELS, Belgium, December 5, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) The European Court of Justice will decide if the "marriage" of two homosexuals will be recognized throughout all EU member states, regardless of nations that still maintain that marriage is exclusively between a man and a woman.
The case before the court hinges on the definition of the word spouse.
Homosexuals Adrian Coman and Clai Hamilton were wed in Belgium in 2010 and now live in the United States. But now Coman wants his home country of Romania to recognize his same-sex marriage so that he and his partner can immigrate there and receive the social benefits of a normal married couple.
But the Romanian Constitutional Court, instead of solving the matter itself, voted by a majority of seven to two to refer the matter for a preliminary ruling to the European Court of Justice.
Normally interpreted to mean husband and wife, activists hope that judges in the EUs Court of Justice (EUCJ) will broadly interpret the word "spouse" to include homosexual couples, using the justification of freedom of movement.
A positive decision would mean Clai can live in Romania with me, Coman says. He equates Romanias law defining marriage as between one man and one woman with discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
Gay Star News wrote that the impact of the decision would change the right to same-sex spouses in six countries.
The traditionally Christian sovereign nations that could be affected are Romania, Poland, Bulgaria, Slovakia, Lithuania, and Latvia.
If the homosexual activists win the case, it would bring into conflict the EUs rule respecting sovereign nations opposing laws with the EUs freedom of movement rule, which provides for EU international continuity.

So now we have foreign homosexuals coming into the USA so they can file homosexual marriage lawsuits against other countries?
Poland will leave if that happens.
These individuals should show some estrogen and make demands that Muslims recognize same-sex marriage; anything else is just a weak cry for attention. In fact, they should go to Tehran and make this demand directly to the head sheet
Poland is Catholic and so won’t leave. Catholics on the whole are heretics.
