Petition against EU interference in Romania’s Constitution & Letter to Prime Minister Ciolos and the CCR


The Constitutional Court of Romania has, for the fourth time, postponed a decision on a case involving two homosexual men (one American, and one Romanian) who are seeking to overturn Romania’s Civil Code, which does not recognise same-sex „marriages” contracted in other countries.

The two male applicants were engaged in a so-called „marriage” in Belgium, one of the few countries in the world (20 out of 196) which allow homosexuals to „marry”.

HOWEVER, as every politician and member of any judiciary in Europe know, the definitions of marriage and family STILL remain the competence of each member state.

We know that this is true because on 23 July, 2015, FAFCE President, Antoine Renard, wrote to the President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, to ask for clarity around some dubious statements made by Frans Timmermans (First Vice-President of the European Commission), in support of same-sex „marriage”.

Mr Tusk replied, by emphatically stating that “the definitions of marriage and family are indeed matters of national competencefor EU Member States”.

Nevertheless, for some inexplicable reason (most probably, politically-motivated), the Constitutional Court of Romania has just referred this case to the European Court of Justice.

By not acting to protect Romania’s Civil Code, and by passing the buck to the European Court, the CCR is engaging in a reprehensible form of judicial activism.

BUT, who are the people who get forgotten in these cases?

The most important actors in this case are actually the majority of Romanian citizens, for whose common good the PM and Government (and, CCR, too) must, ultimately, act.

That stated, this case should now be put into context.

This year, because of the work done by a Romanian organisation, Coaliţia pentru Familie, over 3 million Romanian citizens signed a petition calling for a review of Art. 48 of the Romanian Constitution, to exclude the possibility of legalising homosexual union in Romania.

An astonishing 3 million Romanian adults asked for this change, which equates to about 25% of the total electorate, meaning that this movement to protect the natural family simply cannot be motivated by party political affiliation.

Also, in 2015, a Eurobarometer poll showed that 69% of Romanians were against same-sex „marriage”.

So, from the evidence, it is very clear that the Romanian public wish to reserve marriage to one man and one woman, only.

Therefore, this type of raw judicial tyranny must NOT be tolerated.

Should the European Court of Justice return anything but a decision which tells the CCR to refer back to Romania’s own Civil Code, the current Romanian Government (as well as the CCR), or the one which follows it, must simply reject that decision as bogus.

This petition,therefore, asks two things:

1) In the case of a faulty European ruling, this petition asks the PM (now, or post-election) to protect marriage, as between one man and one woman, on the grounds that any decision calling for the recognition of same-sex „marriage” in Romania, is a faulty and dangerous ruling because it goes against the principle which allows members states to define marriage and family.

2) This petition also calls on the PM to order an investigation of the CCR, as the Court is obviously unable to understand the very basic nature and intention of the Romanian Civil Code – which was put in place by elected officials – i.e., the Romanian Parliament.

Thank you for signing this urgent petition!
