Pro-Marriage, Pro-Family Forces Win BIG in Taiwan

Since 2016, Christian and pro-life families in Taiwan, with the aid of MassResistance, have been organizing massive demonstrations across the country to raise awareness of the cultural consequences of legalizing same sex “marriage”.

"Christian groups decided to put the issue up for a nationwide vote. Even though Christians make up only 5% of the population in Taiwan, they were able to get the signatures necessary to do put forth three ballot questions: (1) marriage is only between one man and one woman (2) have a “different process” other than the legal system for dealing with same-sex unions; and (3) ban the teaching of homosexuality in public schools.

The LGBT movement also put up two ballot questions: (1) Should the civil code guarantee the rights of same-sex couples to get married? (2) Should “gender equality education covering LGBTI rights” be compulsory in the public schools?

Last Saturday, November 24, 2018, the country voted. All three of the Christian groups’ ballot questions passed. The two LGBT movement’s ballot questions failed. The pro-family movement had won. The mainstream media around the world reacted with shock and anger. At this writing the Taiwan election authorities have not released the exact vote totals – except to say that they percentages were quite substantial.

The Parliament is now going to have to deal with conflicting mandates – the Court’s ruling versus the peoples’ vote. It may force the issue back to the Supreme Court."  Read the rest HERE.
