World Congress of Families X and The Future of the Family In Europe
What happens at World Congress of Families X in Tbilisi (Republic of Georgia, May 15-18, 2016) will have a profound impact on family policy throughout Eastern Europe, the Caucuses, the Balkans and the former Soviet Union.
- The fight for the family is moving south and east – south to Africa and east to Eastern Europe, the Balkans and countries of the former Soviet Union:
- Greece just passed civil unions.
- The people of Slovenia defeated same-sex “marriage” by a landslide vote in a national referendum.
- Romanians will soon start a drive to collect 500,000 signatures on a petition to constitutionally define marriage as the union of a man and a woman.
- Hungary and Poland stopped a covert attempt to force homosexual marriage on all of the countries of the European Union.
- In 2013 the Russian Duma passed an anti-propaganda law to prevent the solicitation of minors by sexual radicals.
- Like their Western European counterparts, these countries are plagued by fertility rates well below replacement level.
- Their faith-based, traditional cultures are under assault by the European Union, the U.S. State Department and increasingly well-funded and aggressive NGOs pushing sexual radicalism, marriage deconstruction and indoctrination in the guise of education.
- The battle has been joined.
- In 2007, World Congress of Families IV was held in Warsaw’s Palace of Culture and Science.
- In 2011, we had the World’s first Demographic Summit in Moscow,at the Russian State Social University.
- In 2015, we held regional conferences in Moldavia, Serbia and Tbilisi. For Serbia and Georgia, these were second annual conferences.
- World Congress of Families X/Tbilisi 2016 will be our first Congress in an Orthodox country, the first in the Caucuses and the first east of Poland.
- Tbilisi will help the international pro-family movement to establish a beachhead in the region. One reason sexual radicals have targeted these countries is to demonstrate their ability to overcome traditional cultures and compel people who cling to normative values to bend to their will.
- Tbilisi 2016 could begin the process of rolling back Cultural Marxism across the continent.
