Croatians voted to ban gay marriages in what is a major victory for the Catholic Church-backed conservatives.
The state electoral commission, citing initial results, said 65 percent of those who voted answered “yes” to the referendum question: “Do you agree that marriage is matrimony between a man and a woman?” About 34 percent voted against.
The result meant that Croatia’s constitution will be amended to ban same-sex marriage.
The vote has deeply divided Croatia. Liberal groups have said the referendum’s question infringes on basic human rights. The Church-backed groups have gathered 750,000 signatures in its support.
The country of 4.4 million, which became EU’s 28th member in July, has taken steps to improve gay rights, but issues such as same-sex marriage remain highly sensitive in the staunchly Catholic nation.

You do not have to be a Catholic to understand that marriage is between a man and a woman. Also among Hindus and Buddhists, there are strong family values. In India, homosexuality is still a criminal offense.
The Western civilization is rapidly falling into the trap of acceptance of sexual immorality, and will face an abyss of sin and perversion.
as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
This rebellion against God of the Bible will cost hundreds of millions of people in Europe and the USA their eternal life. They refuse to stand for the truth, and corrupt their ways. What God has called sin, they have chosen to bless.
Jesus the Messiah warns us. Just before His second coming, mankind will move 3.000 years backwards, and fall into the same pits as the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. Abraham pleaded for Sodom, but was not able to find even 10 righteous men who feared God.
Now, we see the same situation in large part of a civilization who have left faith in Jesus, and chosen Satan to be their “god and master.
Repent or perish.
