European countries must resist Gordon Brown's campaign to normalise homosexual relationships

Gordon Brown (pictured), the British prime minister, has told a homosexual magazine that the British government is working to have British same-sex civil partnerships recognised by the legal systems of all European countries. Mr Brown made the comments in an interview with Attitude magazine - the same magazine in which Tony Blair said that the Catholic Church should change its teaching on homosexuality.

European countries must resist Mr Brown's campaign to normalise homosexual relationships, if they wish to retain the right to set their own laws protecting the family. The campaign for homosexuality and for sexually explicit anti-life sex education is becoming more oppressive:
  • In January, Spain's supreme court ruled that parents do not have the right to opt out of "Education for Citizenship", the government's militantly pro-homosexual and anti-family schools programme. 
  • In September, the European Parliament passed a resolution against a new Lithuanian law seeking to protect minors from sexualisation by society.
  • Last week, eight fathers have been jailed after refusing to send their children to sex education classes
As the late Pope John Paul II taught in Evangelium Vitae (para. 97), it is an illusion to think that we can build a true culture of human life if we do not offer adolescents and young adults an authentic education in sexuality, and in love, and the whole of life according to their true meaning and in their close interconnection. The normalisation of homosexual relationships through legal recognition of same-sex civil partnerships serves to break that close interconnection. Such 'normalisation' leads directly to placing pressures on educationalists to give young people a distorted education in human sexuality and thus entrenches a culture of death, according to Pope John Paul II, in a new generation.
