New Greek Draft Law Allows Civil Partnership Rights to Same Sex Couples



7E2BF4FC27F0D5FE6F64AF05AEE422B3Couples that choose civil partnership will have the same rights as married couples and the same will apply to same sex couples, according to a new draft law to be tabled in Greek parliament.

According to the bill released by the ministry of justice, same sex couples can choose civil partnership in order to cohabit and enjoy full rights as married couples. However, they don’t have the right to adopt children. Adoption by same sex couples will be discussed in the future, according to the ministry.

Civil rights, inheritance issues, taxation and public employee law rights will apply to couples that prefer civil partnership, Justice Minister Nikos Paraskevopoulos stated.

The same bill includes the establishment of a National Council Against Racism and Intolerance, while other amendments include changes in racism laws, such as the definition of race crime will not only apply to racist motives but also to racist causes, such as race or religion discrimination.

  1. Finally a National Council Against racism&intolerance. They will have a lot of work. I hope they will really have power to punish xenophobes and racists.

  2. You can thank Syriza for bringing in this cultural marxist trash. Yeah our economy is the laughing stock of the world and we are being invaded by illegal economic opportunists, but hey at least the gays will be able to push their degenerate behavior.

    “The same bill includes the establishment of a National Council Against Racism and Intolerance, while other amendments include changes in racism laws, such as the definition of race crime will not only apply to racist motives but also to racist causes, such as race or religion discrimination.”

    In other words, Syriza knows its leftist ideology of suicidal acceptance is doomed in the face of the advancing hordes of illegals so they are doing this as a (laughable) last resort. Will these people learn? You can throw us in prison and even try to ban free speech and thought but in the long run, it will only further strengthen us and backfire badly on you. Granted I do hope that this law does not pass but even if it does, it really is little more then an example of Syriza seeing the writing on the wall.

  3. Good move, there should not be discriminations between civil union and marriage, especially knowing that most civil unions are contracted by heterosexual couples.
    A commission to fight racism and intolerance is also a great idea as long as it really dies the work. Education is key to make people understand that tolerance and opened mindedness are the only normal way to have a thriving society and not a close sclerosed/dyeing society.

  4. “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” – Leviticus 18:22

    “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.” – Leviticus 20:13

    The homosexual act is identified as iniquity or a vile affection which is a grievous sin to God in the Christian bible.

    Corinthians 6:9-10 makes it clear that homosexuals will not enter the kingdom of heaven.

    “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor HOMOSEXUALS, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”

    Romans 1:26-27 condemns homosexuality as a sin, labelling homosexual acts as “shameful”

    For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

  5. In June 2014, the bishop Anthimos of Thessaloniki, condemned Gay Pride celebrations of the LGBT community, stating that it is “a perversion of human existence.” http://greece.greekreporter.com/2014/06/19/greek-bishop-condemns-gay-pride-parade/
    I hope the Orthodox Church takes a firm stance against this latest attempt by Greece’s Godless Marxist SYRIZA led SYRIZA-ANEL coalition regime to uproot Christianity from Greek society. ONLY Golden Dawn strongly supports Greece remaining an Orthodox Christian nation, with strong ties between Church and State. I sincerely hope that the Orthodox Church finally realises this and lends its support to Golden Dawn which is currently being attacked by the entire Christ hating political-media establishment in Greece.

  6. The recent so called “anti-racism” laws, (largely the result of pressure from foreign Zionist lobbies) are used by the left, and the pseudo-conservatives of the phony right, to disarm the Hellenic people, from resisting 3rd world, primarily Islamic colonisation of Greece, which as Bishop Amvrosios said, will result in the children of today’s Greeks, being the “slaves of muslims”. http://greece.greekreporter.com/2014/09/29/bishop-amvrosios-against-jihadists/
