World Congress of Families Commends Lithuania for Legislation on Harm to Minors by Homosexual Agitation
MEDIA ADVISORY, Dec. 18 /Christian Newswire/ -- World Congress of Families Managing Director Larry Jacobs commended the Lithuanian Parliament for a move recognizing the damage done to minors by homosexual proselytizing.
Jacobs noted that "encouraging the gay 'life-style,' under the guise of promoting tolerance, has become the norm in most Western nations - supported by the United Nations and European Union." Jacobs disclosed, "This often takes the form of public-school indoctrination that seeks to foster acceptance of homosexual relations as normal and healthy - frequently describing them in graphic detail."
Lithuanian legislators are considering an amendment to their protection-of-minors statute that affirms "public information that agitates for homosexual relations" produces "a detrimental effect on the development of minors" and "defies family values."
Lithuania has regulations against so-called Gay Pride parades and rainbow-flag displays.
Jacobs said the law, which will probably be enacted to take effect next year, is a recognition of reality. "What could be more harmful to children than agitating for sexual relations outside of marriage that lead to emotional and physical harm such as AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases. It's hard to imagine doing greater harm to children than luring them into what amounts to an unhealthy and dangerous life- style."
World Congress is committed to the protection and propagation of the natural family. World Congress of Families V will be held in Amsterdam, August 10-12, 2009.
