Matt Barber of the Christian conservative Liberty Counsel on Friday praised Slovakian lawmakers for approving a constitutional amendment limiting marriage to heterosexual couples.

Wednesday's vote makes Slovakia the 13th European nation to ban gay marriage constitutionally.

“While the U.S. seems bound and determined to destroy natural marriage and family, other nations around the world have figured out that radically deconstructing these fundamental cornerstone institutions – institutions necessary to the survival of any healthy society – will have devastating effects in the long-term,” Barber wrote in a blog post.

“Slovakia is the latest such nation. Lawmakers there have constitutionally banned counterfeit 'same-sex marriage.'”

“Let’s pray that this pro-family trend across the world continues. As the radical 'LGBT' agenda continues to weaken America, obliterate religious liberty and hurt and confuse countless children and families, we can at least take solace in the fact that much of the world has not been duped by this demonic incursion of sexual anarchy,” he added.
