.- The organization, Muevete Chile has launched a campaign to stop the Senate committee from approving a measure that would open the door to homosexual unions under of the banner of “non-discrimination.”

“With the approval of this project, a negative domino effect will unleash the approval of other measures that are waiting, such as a measure on same-sex unions,” the organization warned.

After pointing out that the family is based on the union between man and woman and is a “non-negotiable” principle, Muevete Chile called on voters to express their rejection of the new measure.

“This measure has not been promoted by voters, but by the gay-lesbian-transsexual-bisexual lobby, which has been pressuring senators for three years,” the organization stated.  Muevete Chile also added that in “the name of non-discrimination,” “people of good faith, politicians committed to the common good, Christians, priests and pastors are persecuted and punished for merely reading passages from the Old Testament that condemn homosexuals.”

“This measure uses the subtleties and subjectivity of language in order to approve homosexual conduct and contemplates punishing with fines and imprisonment those accused of arbitrarily discriminating,” it warned.

Muevete Chile said the dignity of persons, “whether they are homosexual or not, does not mean approving homosexual acts and much less the legalization of marriage between homosexuals.”

“Civil laws have an important and sometimes determining role in the promotion of a mentality and of customs, which affect society for good or for evil depending on their content,” the group stated.
