On 24 February the Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico and the Christian Democrat, Jan Figel (KDH) agreed on a constitutional amendment. The two leaders of the Socialists and Christian Democrats were considering to establish marriage as a union between a man and a woman in the Constitution.
“The constitutional amendment prohibits the legalization of marriage between same sex people,” said Figel.
“The Liberal Party, as well as all major drive by media in the country,” remain the main opponents of the constitutional amendment, There is also the international aberro sodomite network that exerts pressure against the agreement.The first parliamentary vote took place on 29March, the decisive vote in May.“Maybe before the European elections,” said Figel.
Figel is of the opinion that the former Communist countries are more sensitive to ideological monopolization. It can not be that a certain ideology should be imposed on all. “We have a clear idea of marriage and family,” said Figel, “and we do not want to be lectured to from outside”.
Slovakia is chiefly a Catholic country, Roman Rite mostly in the west and more Byzantine Rite (and some Orthodox) in the eastern end, known as Transcarpathia, close to the Ukrainian border which is rife with the country-less Rusyns (also called Ruthenians), a small ethnic group with its unique language and culture, that uses the Cyrillic alphabet like nationalities such as Ukraine, Russia, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Serbia and others influenced by the missionaires to the Slavs, Ss Cyril and Methodius.
