*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/-
Surprizingly, it's even Years After controversial former US President Barack Hussein Obama's notorious Pressure to Impose UnPopular "Same Sex Marriages" between Homosexuals, Submitting to their "Power" even Children under pretext of so-called "Adoption", that Countries such as Romania a.o. still feel, Nowadays, the Need to SafeGuard Natural Family, by organizing a Referendum to clarify in their Constitution, a Definition of Marriage similar to that of Article 12, of the PanEuropean Convention on Human Rights, which Recognizes to "Men and Women" a "Right to Marry and found a Family", already, since Half a Century ago.


This is the main object of the Popular Referendum opened to Vote during this Week-End, (October 6 and 7, 2018), by Romania's 20 Millions Citizens, thanks to a People's "Initiative" dating from 2015, which Succeeded to Gather 6 Times More Supporters than needed, (instead of just 500.000, it was Signed by 3 Millions on 2016 !), and to be, in Addition, Endorsed Both by the Parliament and the Senate of the Country, (with 232 Votes against only 22,  and 107 against only 13, respectively, on 2017 and 2018).


Curiously, However, its Opponents have Claimed that such a Popular Referendum would be ..."Against Europe (sic !)", (as a Strange Article by a Romanian Author argued in Liberal German Newspaper "Zeit"), and, particularly, that it was against "LGBTI Rights", (according several NGOs, mainly Backed by Controversial Multi-Millionaire Soros, etc).


Both seem Unable to explain the Fact that this Popular Referendum simply Reproduces the ECHR's Original Text on Men and Women's Right to Marry and found a Family, witOut adding Homosexuals there, (Comp. Supra, and See also Infra)...


----------------


All the (manifold) Parties located at the Right Side of the Political Spectrum support this Popular Referendum, Joined by an Historic, later Marginalized, but Recently slowly ReGaining Force "Ecologic" Party, as well as even a Part of the ..."Socialist" Party, (something that former Long-Time President of Romania, Trajan Basescu, pointed out as a "Paradox").


Opposed (or, rather, "Boycotting") are a Minor, openly "Technocratic" Party, added to a Split of atypical "Greens", curiously very "Liberal/Private Economy"-minded, and looking more and more as an Appendix of "LGBTI" Lobbies, and a Recent Part of a (much Wider than that) Anti-Corruption Movement, with Exceptionaly Shaky Leaders who have all Failed to Stay at least One (1) Year in the job (sic !).


"Neutral" reportedly is a Part of some Long-Time "Liberals", who Recently turned their coats towards the "EPP" Group in EU bodies, but wihOut adhering to the ChristianDemocrats' traditional BioEthical Values, (etc).


------------------------------


However, a Strange Feeling of possible Ambiant Hypocrisy, at least from Some sectors and/or Parties, (Comp. Supra), Might, Perhaps, explain the Fact that this Popular Referebdum's Date of Vote was, astonishingly, Postponed, Belied, and, Later anew Modified, too Many Times in a row : F.ex., initially foreseen on Fall 2017, it was Changed for May 2018, Later Moved to June 2018, Afterwards on September 2018, and Now on October 2018...


+ In Addition, this Latest chosen Date, astonishingly Coincides with an EU Parliament's Debate Criticizing the current State of Law in Romania, (last Wednesday Morning in Strasbourg), on which, a more or less "Hot" Resolution was, curiously, left for Vote only Later-on, i.e. at the Next Session of EU Parliament, towards the End of October, scheduled for just AFTER that Referendum... (Almost at the Same Moment that anOther, even more Crucial Resolution, by CoE's PanEuropean Assembly, related to Russia's Membership, was Curiously entrusted as Rapporteur to a Notorious pro-LGBTI Technocrat, working on Artificial and other Reproductions of Human Beings, from the "Socialist" Group, Next Week in Strasbourg - i.e. just Before the Final Vote, Later in EU Parliament, on the Referendum for Romania - traditionally Linked to Neighbouring Countries and Russia itself also through Orthodox a.o. Christian Networks Backing that Referendum).


----------------------


More Serious is the Fact that its (Open or Disguised) Critics, here even more than elsewhere, Attempt to Evade the Main Substance of the Key Issues at Stake, and, particularly, that what is Really the Matter,


- is Not Homosexuals' Individual Liberty in their own Private Life, (since they are Free to have any Sexual Life they might want, and might, even, perhaps, form some kind of "Personal Unions" for Practical Issues, etc),


- But rather the Risk for Many Thousands of Homosexual "Couples" to become Easy Prey and slyly "Trapped" by a Lobby of Shady Technocrats, who could Exploit the LGBTI Community's InCapacity for Natural Births, (since they are Not Fertile), in order to "Use" them as a "Proxy" Group of Interest secretly Manipulated Against Natural Births of Human Beings, Pushing them, instead, in favour of various Artificial Tehniques for ProCreation, (f.ex. Artificial Reproductive Technology, In Vitro Fertilisations, Artificial Inseminations, Pre-Natal Tests, Creation of SuperNumerary Embryos, Human Embryos' Genetic Manipulations, "Banks" of Frozen Embryos, Sperms and/or Ovaries, Artificial Wombs, Surrogate "Mothers", New "Gene-Editing" Technologies, etc), provoking obvious Dangers for Humankind !

I.e. what is really at Stake in such kind of Topical BioEthical Issues is, in Fact, so Important, that Adversaries of Natural Human Family and Natural Births don't Dare Oppose it Oppenly, but Rather Try to Abuse of InDirect Methods to Undermine that : F.ex., here, they reportedly Push to Lower the percentage of Popular Participation to that Romanian Referendum's Votes under the Crucial Threshhold of 30%, (even if about 90% of Voters appear to be Supporting that BioEthical Referendum, according to Polls).

Will the Romanian People let a Shady Minority Lobby Block Democracy in such a Serious BioEthical Issue of Nowadays Society, with manifold Crucial Reperscussions on Humankind's foreseable Future (Comp. Supra) ?

Benedict's "Source" to revitalize Europe : - "The World needs Hope", Pope says, calling to relaunch E.U. via Human Rights !

Paris - Lourdes - Strasbourg : 12 - 17 September 2008.

The vital need to re-launch Europe can be succesfully met by defending fundamental Human Rights of the People, said Pope Benedict XVI in his 1st speech in France, at his meeting with President Nicolas Sarkozy, who currently chairs the EU.

Sarkozy replied by welcoming Christian and other religions' contribution to indispensable Public Debates on crucial issues which affect Human Dignity, Europe, even Humankind, as BioGenetics.

- "When Europeans will see and personally experience that the inalienable Rights of the Human Person .., those of their free Education, their Family life, their Work, ..their Religious Rights, ..are respected and promoted, then, these Europeans will fully understand the greatness of the European construction and will be actively involved in it", Benedict XVI stressed.

- "It's important that during France's EU Presidency, there is, indeed, a desire for the Church to contribute to protect Human Person's integrity, and I think that there is also a growing Conscience, beyond any polemics, to defend Human Rights, and, thus, contribute to ensure respect for Human Dignity", added to "EuroFora" the Pope's Spokesman, Vatican's Press Director Federico Lombardi.

- "Nobody really told us here that Lisbon Treaty was good for this or that reason to the People. They only told us that we "had" to ratify it, and tried to scare us, but failed", said 2 Irish pilgrims to "EuroFora", after 2 Majority Abstentions in 1999 and 2004 EU Elections and 3 "NO" to Referenda in France and the Netherlands in 2005, followed by the Irish "No" in 2008, during a Decade of EU Crisis since the controversial Turkey EU- bid (1999-2008).

More than .."224 cases of Murders, Torture, "Disappearancies" or Destructions" by "agents of Turkish Security forces", where all those responsible for so heavy Crimes still remain scandalously unpunished, despite regular condemnations of Ankara by Strasbourg''s European Court of Human Rights from 1996 to 2008, were examined the same week by CoE's Ministers, who decided to launch a fresh call "urging" the Turkish Authorities to end this dangerous "virtual Impunity" of criminals, without comparison to European countries.

- "Why not Ukraine, instead of Turkey ?", asked EuroFora a Journalist from "Kiev : the city where it's enough to cross the streets in order to realize that it's a European town", as Sarkozy recently said, before solemnly declaring this week, together with Ukranian President Jushenko and EU Commission's chair Baroso, EU's "recognition that Ukraine is a fully European Country, linked to Europe by culture and History".

Europe's "Christian roots" and Values, with "openess and mutual respect" to other cultures and beliefs, were highlighted by Sarkozy in harmony with Benedict XVI.

The Human person should be protected "from his inception until his natural death", added the Pope, faithful to BioEthic principles defended by his predecessor and collaborator, John Paul II, of topical importance in France, Europe and the World today, as Sarkozy announced :

- "Fast and important progres in Genetic Science and procreation raise delicate BioEthical Questions to our Democracies", which "involve our view of Humans and Life, and can lead to Social Mutations. That's why they cannot remain only a business of experts", hestressed.

- "It's Politician's responsibility to set a proper framework for such Public Debates", as "France will do on BioEthics in 2009". "Religious and Philosophic traditions must take part, with their ideas and centuries' long experience : A positive Laicity is an open invitation to Dialogue", he said.

- "France engaged in Europe at another Debate on how to make Financial Capitalism more moral", and the "Social doctrine of the Church fits well what is at stake in modern Globalized Economy"

- "But, a "Real Dialogue is not for an elite of a Globalized world : It penetrates deep into the People : That's why Churches should actively participate : .. It's bringing New Oxygen to Public Debates", stressed Sarkozy.

- "Democracy must not be cut off Reason", which is "compatible with Faith", thanks to "the meeting between Christianism and Greek philosophy ", he added, referring to Pope's views. "It means to advance with logic arguments, search what's best and respect common principles of thinking :... It's an everyday need for Public Administration and the Political Debate", he added.
----------------------------
Pope Benedict's 1st visit to France looked like the start of a brillant, manifold demonstration that this was well-founded and could become true in the lives of the People : After its Theoretical foundations unfolded at a "speech to the world of Culture", inaugurating Bernadins' cultural centre, and its dogmatic instrument shaped at an address to the Clergy in the Historic Notre Dame' Cathedral, he started to resolutely reach out to the People :

The move went upwards like Bach's music : Begining with a call to more than fifteen thousand enthousiastic Youngsters gathered at Notre Dame's parvis with overnight celebrations, it gained strength in an impressive open-air Mass at Paris'central Invalides'area facing Alexander III's bridge, attended by more than 150.000 people, French Prime Minister Fillon, many Ministers, Foreign Ambassadors, etc, and culminated in a series of pan-European Mega-meetings at Lourdes 150th anniversary, together with all French Bishops, EU Commission's vice-Chairman Barrot, and some 200.000 enthousiastic People from all over Europe and beyond : After a Sea of Lights astonishingly braved Saturday Night's rain, an open-air mass at riverside fields among Pyrenees' Mountains Sunday Morning, was followed on Monday by a Sea of "Compassion" to those facing Health or Life threats, surrounded by an endless gathering of People, whose gigantic dimensions obviously surprised the organisers..

Meanwhile, Benedict had the occasion to speak to the French Priests at Notre Dame of Paris, and with the Bishops at Lourdes, where they prepare a crucial November plenary meeting, due to take important decisions on imminent EU debates and choices about Europe's identity, BioEthics, etc.
-------
- "A new way of thinking about Laicity has become necessary", agreed the Pope with President Sarkozy at Elysee. While keeping the "distinction between Politics and Religion, to guarantee Citizens' Liberty", "religion is important for shaping Consciousness and contributing, together with others, to create a basic Ethical Consensus in society".

- "Searching Essential realities", (as "God" for christians), needs "Speech : "Logos" in greek, i.e. Reason", "able to shape a Community","with creative work transforming Human History". But "Dialogue" is instrumental for "Reason", because it's the way to "search" for Truth", in "Liberty", according to Greek Platonic Philosophy, with Socrates' dialectics. "Reason" implies "Spirit and Liberty", hence the polyphonic "Music" of "Dialogue", in a responsible, "well balanced" way, to avoid "destruction".

Starting with a "Dialogue between christians and intellectual or artistic movements" highlighted at Bernardins' Cultural Center. with former Presidents Chirac and Giscard d'Estain, UNESCO's chair Anastassopoulos, etc., as well as representatives of Muslim Communities, (including a separate Turkish), after contacts with Jews at Vatican's Embassy, the Pope turned towards the People :

To French Priests : "Church built on the rock" !
---------------------

dsc01076_400


- Speaking to thousands of French Priests at Notre Dame's Cathedral, Benedict highlighted a solid "Church built on the Rock" of conscious and active persons, transmitting "a lively, energetic and sharp" "God's Speech, actively working on Human History".

"Praying together" with "representatives of Christian Churches and ecclesiastic communities", (as Orthodoxes, Armenians, Protestants, etc), he called "to reinforce the Unity of the church", against "any form of Division", around Holy Spirit', "the Word","Christ's Justice", and "Love" to fellow- humans : Essentials which "resume all holy scripts", as he said.

To Young People : "New Horizons"
------------------------
To some 15.000 enthousiastic Young People at Notre Dame's parvis, along Seine's river, Benedict spoke about "the Energy of the Holy Spirit" and "the Mystery of the Cross" : - "The Holy Spirit opens New Horizons to Human Intelligence .. and makes it conscious of the real greatness of Christ's sacrifice, dying and resurecting for World's life".

Some "may slander you as crazy, laugh at you, or even persecute you. But, "the Holy Cross is a symbol of God's love", and "givesmoral strength" : "Witness of People's pains, it's at the same time, a precious, unique expression of their Hopes", he told them at Paris' dawn.

Invalides' plateau : "People chosen to become God's friends"
---------------------------------------
At the 1st open-air Mass in Paris' center area of Invalides, facing the Grand Palais, along the river Seine, during an impressive gathering of more than 150.000, French Prime Minister Fillon, Ministers Alliot-Marie, Bachelot, Dati, Jouyet, Assembly's President Accoyer, Senate's Chair Poncelet, former 1st Lady Bernadette Chirac, former Prime Minister Raffarin, many foreign Ambassadors, and other political personalities were present. (While earlier, from the Socialist opposition, Paris' Mayor Delanoye, artist Robert Hussein a.o. assisted at the Elysee meeting).

But the "Entry Song" focused on the "People chosen to become God's Friends". The September 11 mass was Dedicated to "Saint Chrysostomus, that great priest of Constantinople", with his "wonderful eloquence and great courage to face challenges", who "made out of despaired and godless people, a people of brothers", opening a possibility to "become all one complete entity", as Pope Benedict reminded.

- "Reason never enters in real contradiction with Faith", stressed Pope Benedict, who prepared his speeches for France during a short Summer rest at Brixen/Bressanone's Seminar, whose Library honors both "Faith and Science".. - "We must use not only our Reason, but also our Faith" : "Get away from Idolatry", "cupidity", "avidity for money, power or even knowledge deviating from essential aims", and other "falses appearances". and "build your Home on the Rock", "with the force that Holy Spirit gives to those who let it act in them", he said to the People of Paris.

Benedict at Lourdes : - "Become Light (even) in the Dark !"
------------------------------------------------------------------
- "Our World needs Hope", stressed Pope Benedict, addressing an impressive TorchLight procession at Lourdes' sanctuaries, where a Sea of Lights held by Hundreds of Thousands of People gathered at Pyrenee's Mountains from all over Europe astonishingly kept their flames despite a heavy Rain at a windy Dark Night...

- "150 years earlier (1858 - 2008), ..here, in the cave, ... a simple young girl, Bernadette .. saw a Light". "The everyday life of her Family was, however, made of Misery, Sadness, Sickness, Misunderstandings, Rejection and Poverty... It was hard to live in Jail". Today, "we think to all Human Beings who suffer : The innocent Victims who face Violence, War, Terrorism, Hunger, Injustices, Catastrophes, Hate and Oppression, Violations of Human Dignity and of their fundamental Rights, of their Liberty to act and think. We also think to those who face Familial problems, sufferings from Unemployment, Sickness, Infirmity, Isolation, or their situation as Immigrants, without forgetting those who suffer and die for the name of Christ", he said.

- "But the Shadows of the Earth, did not hinder Sky's Light to shine : <<The Light shines in the Dark>>" ..."A Way full of Light opens in Human History even in its Darkest moments" : ..."As Night falls, Christ tels us : <<- Keep your Lamps alight !>>."Hold a Light while walking in the Night .. sums up our condition as Christians on their way : "We need light, and we are called to become Light !", Benedict stressed to People setting in motion Lights, Flags and Songs with enthousiasm.

"<<- She looked at me as a Person, who speaks to another Person>>, the poor girl had noted."Light emerges from such a Dialogue", stressed the Pope : "A small Flame called Hope, Compassion and Tenderness dwells inside those who return after being moved by Lourdes' experience". "Christ .. entrusts us with the Mission to let the Light of Charity shine : To make of our Prayers an Act of Love to our brothers and to Fraternal Charity", he concluded.
