Homosexual marriage is not a human right, World Court rules

The World Court of Human Rights has unanimously ruled that there is no such thing as “right to homosexual marriage”.

Daily Independent reports that the proclamation was contained in a statement signed by 47 judges of the 47 countries of the Council of Europe that make up the full Court of Strasbourg.

The proclamation was based on a myriad of philosophical and anthropological considerations based on natural order, common sense, scientific reports and positive law.




    In this historic resolution, the court held that the concept of family not only contemplates “the traditional concept of marriage, that is, the union of a man and a woman”, but also that they should not be imposed on governments to “obligation to open marriage to persons of the same sex”.

    As for the principle of non-discrimination, the court also added that there is no discrimination, since “states are free to reserve marriage only to heterosexual couples”.

    The judgment was based on Article 12 of the European Convention on Human Rights and is equivalent to article 23 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which states that “the family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the State”.

    Section 2 of the article states that “the right of men and women of marriageable age to marry and to found a family shall be recognized”.

    1. It’s not a natural union God made Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve and weather we like it or not there is Male and Female!
      It’s the Right of God not of Man! Thank God for this ruling. Weather theres bad men of the church or not they are only men and very sinful and will suffer for it when they die. You can’t tard all men of the church the same or there would be no church. God wouldn’t allow it! And all the talk of free love makes me sick. Marriage is a sacrament given by God to the Catholic church for man and woman to get the grace to be together till death and so should not be scoffed at. Without the sacrament it’s just a piece of paper and if it is same sex it’s unatural.

    2. My God is God Almighty and He has road at the epitome to shut the mouths of the clueless anti procreation movements perverting nature and God’s mandate for man(procreation) through their fallacious groups called LGBTQ. who can battle with God and win?….NOBODY!

    3. God is God the Almighty God. He has road at the epitome and shut the mouth of irritant anti procreation movements perverting the law of nature and promoting LGBTQs. Who can battle with the Lord….nobody. Glory be to God forever.

    4. Marriage used to be just a way to control us from our universal rights. Love is love, and as long as it’s consensual and above 18 or 16 (in some cases) out is now legal! The church is a joke with all the child molesters they set free, yet they say LGBTQ’s can’t get married “because it’s sacrilegious”? Let love be love! If anything they are the “sinful” ones
