- European Court of Human Rights
After the case of a Lesbian couple in a Civil Partnership who tried to adopt a baby as a couple, the European Court of human rights has deemed that same sex marriage is not a human right and “if gay couples are allowed to marry, any church that offers weddings will be guilty of discrimination if it declines to marry same-sex couples.”
I do however ask the European Court, is Equality not a human right? and are they not being discriminatory by issuing this statement? I would also suggest that as this does not affect the government as a whole, it should be up to the people to decide in the form of a referendum.
We the undersigned find it discriminatory to state that same sex marriage is not a human right.
Equality laws should not be restrictive, the European Courts of Human Rights are stating they are by making such a statement.
Same sex marriage Laws should be decided by the people, in the form of referendums. This is an issue that affects the people and not the government as an institution.
