SLOVENIA: Legislature Rejects Bid For Referendum To Repeal Same-Sex Marriage

The Slovene National Assembly today approved a bill that bans the proposed referendum on repealing same-sex marriage. Today's action cites the 2013 constitutional amendment that forbids popular votes on human rights issues. Anti-gay factions are now expected to appeal to the Slovene Constitutional Court with the claim that marriage is not a human right. Early this month Slovenia became the 12th European nation to legalize same-sex marriage. (Via JMG reader Robin)
