Endorse the Tbilisi Declaration to repeal the "Law on Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination" and protect the natural family
It has come to our attention of the World Congress of Families that Georgia, following the demands of the European Union officials related to the Association Agreement between Georgia and the EU, and to the EU Visa Liberalization Action plan, has recently initiated and adopted the Law on Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination.
Having familiarized ourselves with the law, it is our understanding that your traditional country with ancient and authentic culture, one of the oldest Christian societies in the world, has effectively agreed to join the list of states who choose to ban expression of freedom of its citizens opposing the immoral developments and propaganda of sexual behaviors, regarded as sinful and unacceptable in Christian tradition, and harmful for the family, for children and for the society as a whole. Such legal approaches are being destructive for the family and for the public morals instead of protecting them.
Under pretext of the protection from discrimination they lead to serious discrimination of people respecting traditional moral and family values, especially Christians, and to the massive human rights violations. Those proven guilty under the law become subjected to Georgia’s criminal code under which the physical persons can be subjected to correctional labor for up to 1 year, or imprisonment of up to 2 years and legal organizations can be liquidated.
We “strongly” urge the Georgian government to repeal this latest example of leftist cultural imperialism in the guise of anti-discrimination.
Below is a link to an open letter by Georgian intellectuals (“Respect Our Traditions”) which analyzes this assault on Georgian society in more detail. http://www.pravoslavie.ru/english/65554.htm
Our friends in Georgia urgently need international support to affirm and defend the natural family - "the fundamental unit of society and the key to social prosperity for every nation."
