LJUBLJANA, Slovenia (LifeSiteNews) – The Eastern European country of Slovenia just legalized same-sex “marriage” and adoption privileges last Friday, following two cases in which litigants complained they could obtain neither.
According to Jurist, the Slovenia Ministry of Labour, Family, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities said the court was acting in response to the U.S. Supreme Court Dobbs decision overturning Roe v. Wade. The Dobbs ruling laid out principles according to which the Obergefell v. Hodges decision legalizing same-sex “marriage” in the U.S. could also be overturned.
The Constitutional Court of Slovenia voted 6-3 in the two cases it heard, striking down current laws that it claimed were “inadmissible discrimination against same-sex couples.”
Slovenia was previously part of Yugoslavia, which criminalized sodomy in 1959. However, this was undone in 1977, when Slovenia was granted authority over its own criminal code as a member state of Yugoslavia.

Five Tampa Bay Rays pitchers are now subject to a media witch-hunt after refusing to wear LGBT symbols on their hats and shirts because of their faith in God.
One ESPN commentator called the men "bigoted" for supposedly using "religious exemption BS" to say "no" to the Pride Month clothing.
It's time to stand with these men against the intolerance of the radical left.
SIGN the petition to support the MLB players opposing LGBT Pride
The careers and lives of the five pitchers — Jason Adam, Jalen Beeks, Brooks Raley, Jeffrey Springs and Ryan Thompson — will be greatly harmed if we abandon them to the cancel culture of their critics, like ESPN's Sarah Spain.
“That religious exemption BS is used in sports and otherwise also allows for people to be denied health care, jobs, apartments, children, prescriptions, all sorts of rights,” Spain claimed.
“We have to stop tiptoeing around it because we’re trying to protect people who are trying to be bigoted...” she continued.
Now they're trying to cancel people for not wearing a gay pride patch. This is always the trajectory for the Left. First they demand tolerance, then acceptance, then celebration, then participation. Learn to say no to these people or it will never end. https://t.co/02zAKDJx77— Best selling LGBT children's author Matt Walsh (@MattWalshBlog) June 8, 2022
These men should be celebrated for their bravery, but instead are being derided for sticking up for their Christian beliefs.

People are being bullied into conformity by an LGBT movement that claims to be about tolerance and diversity, unless you're a devout Christian.
“Now they’re trying to cancel people for not wearing a gay pride patch,” the Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh remarked.
“This is always the trajectory for the Left. First they demand tolerance, then acceptance, then celebration, then participation. Learn to say no to these people or it will never end.”
It's hard to imagine sports columnists like Nancy Armour of USA Today attacking Muslims for their rejection of Pride propaganda, but she sees no problem in attacking these devout Christians.
Oh for God’s sake. These folks who bastardize religion to suit their bigotry would do well to actually READ the New Testament. I’d recommend starting with Matthew. https://t.co/qAK875xDhZ— Nancy Armour (@nrarmour) June 5, 2022
We hope Nancy Armour's reading of the New Testament extends to Romans 1:25-27.
Most commentators simply don't understand that loving everyone as a Christian means telling people certain actions are extremely harmful to the soul.
SIGN: These men were right to reject the LGBT Pride insignias on their hats and jerseys.
Indeed, by peeling off the rainbow logo from their jerseys and wearing the standard team hat, the five pitchers have taken a stand against an ideology that's antithetical to Christianity.
Major League Baseball (MLB) and every other professional sports league have promoted LGBTQ causes in recent years, including showcasing a “marriage” proposal between two homosexuals in front of a stadium packed with families.
Sports are no longer safe from the tenticles of the LGBT movement, with players being strong-armed into virtue signaling for causes they disagree with.
It's time for people to stand up and say "Enough".
SIGN the petition and play your part in resisting the advances of intolerant wokeism into every sphere of public life.
Thank you for signing and sharing this petition.

In 2006, Slovenia allowed domestic partnerships. The National Assembly then attempted in vain to pass a bill legalizing same-sex “marriage,” but instead, opponents got the matter placed on a national referendum on marriage. The referendum went to the people for a vote in 2015, and 63.5% of Slovenians voted against it, in a resounding rebuke to politicians pushing the LGBT agenda.
At the time of the referendum, Slovenian Gregor Jerovsek, a 40-year-old mechanic, said that “the family should not be a field for experimentation … A traditional family should remain the key value of our society.”
The court on Friday gave the National Assembly six months to pass legislation in accord with its ruling, stating, however, that its judgment stood in for law in the meantime. The President, Robert Golob, was quick to respond that he would introduce a bill to the legislature within two weeks.
“We promise to work to prepare and adopt legislative amendments as soon as possible to ensure equal rights for all,” Golob’s Freedom movement said.
In contrast to Slovenia, neighboring countries Hungary and Croatia have defined in their constitutions that marriage is a union only between a man and a woman. Last year, after winning re-election as chairman of the Fidesz party, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban declared, “we insist that marriage in Hungary is between a man and a woman, a father is a man and a mother is a woman … and they should leave our children alone.”
