Homeland Union opposes same - sex partnerships


In its ambitious election programme, the conservative Lithuanian party Homeland Union promises to further strengthen the family institute. Irena Degutiene, Chairman of the Parliamentary Group of the Homeland Union and Speaker of Parliament, claimed that she will actively oppose the legalization of homosexual partnerships, which would purportedly help civilization to destroy itself and humanity.

“That is directed against the survival of the country. I cannot understand how a family could have two mothers or two fathers. There should be both a mother and a father. That is self-evident,” stated Ms. Degutiene during a meeting of the Homeland Union.

Her speech against same-sex marriage was received with applause by party members. The party considers family, which the Speaker of Parliament cannot imagine without a marriage between a man and a woman, to be the main unit of the country, which should not be destroyed: “If we legalize gay or lesbian marriages… I don’t even want to think about that.”

Ms. Degutiene was reminded of a case when before a visit to Germany she was warned not to talk about family policy, because she would not be understood. She was confused by this, as she considers it to be the duty of a country to preserve the institution of family and the state itself.
