Vive la France...and now Estonia Stands for the Family, too!

As the French people continue their fight against th imposition of counterfeit marriage, they have inspired and are being joined by, the people of Estonia. From today's LifeSiteNews:

"The founder of Estonia’s pro-family movement said in an interview with a Polish Catholic television program that the country’s draft law on same-sex marriage will not go forward after his group presented the government with nearly 40,000 signatures defending traditional marriage. Law professor Varro Vooglaid (left) told Polonia Christiana that presentation of the petition from the Estonian Foundation for Defense of Tradition and Family will not allow the homosexualist ideologues to frame the issue in terms of “human rights”.

Last month, the group presented a petition of 38,000 signatures to Estonia’s parliament to oppose all plans that may be put forward to re-define marriage to include same-sex partnerings. This, Vooglaid said, has shown the homosexualist lobby that there is going to be serious and organised opposition to their plans. The petition form was delivered to 580,000 households, in a country with a total population of 1.2 million.

Vooglaid called the petition, the largest in the country’s history since emancipation from the Soviet Union, an 'historic event in Estonian politics'. Homosexualists had become used to having the only voice heard in public, but now, he said, 'We have really managed to change the rules of the game.'”
