Statement by the Rabbinical Centre of Europe (RCE) Regarding the Referendum in Croatia
This statement is written on the occasion of the national referendum to define marriage in Croatia as the union of man and woman. This definition of marriage is fully compatible and consistent with the teachings of the Jewish religion. In this context we fully support the civil initiative “On behalf of the family” which launched the referendum.
We are also very disturbed at reports that some have compared this pro-marriage initiative with the Nazi regime and the ideology of fascism. We consider these statements to be inappropriate and insulting to the memory of millions of innocent victims.
