May 27, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) -- The Parliament of Greenland voted unanimously on May 26 to conform to Danish laws legalizing same-sex "marriage" and adoption of children by homosexual couples.

Greenland, with a population of about 57,000 predominantly Greenlandic Inuit, is an autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark, having voted for self-rule in 2008.

Denmark was the first country in the world to legalize homosexual civil partnerships, in 1989. This legislation gave same-sex couples all the legal rights of a married man and woman, but stopped short of allowing same-sex “marriage” and church weddings.

In 1997 the country legalized same-sex “marriage.” Under that law, homosexuals were able to get “married” in a blessing ceremony after a normal church service.

In 2009, Danish homosexuals were given the right to adopt children.

In 2012, the Danish Parliament voted in legislation forcing churches in the established Evangelical Lutheran Church to perform same-sex “marriage” ceremonies inside their sanctuaries, although an opt-out clause was conceded to pastors who objected to performing the “wedding” service for theological reasons.

The Greenlandic law goes into effect on October 1, 2015.
