If the fundamental rights and values the CJEU upheld in the Coman case are not to your liking, you perhaps have no business in this Union altogether, and your country should better leave.

Personally, it seems extremely trivial to whine (as you do in your post) about all those little legal modifications that may now be required – it’s just a small price to pay to enable people to freely live out their faith (something your organisation claims to promote) to enter in a legal bond with those they love. Men and women can still be married without a problem, so why should their bond become any less, how on earth are they ever affected by granting same-sex couples similar rights?

Oh, and if you want to really protect “the right of a child to a mother and a father”… shall we also introduce a rigid ban on divorce, and on the premature death of any one parent?
