Come Out… If You Dare!

MSes today were also debating government bill covering same sex unions. Although the bill represents compromise between liberals and conservatives within governing coalition – same sex unions had been thrown out of proposed Family Act – some people in Sabor can’t stand them in any shape or form. One of those was Anto Kovačević (Anto Kovacevic), already infamous for his Taleban-like statements about women’s role in modern Croatia. He opposed the bill claiming that “homosexuality represents crime against nature” and that “all homosexuals are drug users and dregs of society”.

Surprisingly, homosexuals were defended by another colourful personality from the far right of Croatian politics. Ljubo Ćesić-Rojs (Ljubo Cesic-Rojs) countered Kovačević’s claims, stating that all homosexuals aren’t drug users, and that many of them are respectable citizens, including politicians and fellow MSes. The latter were called by Ćesić-Rojs to come out and thus prove their true manhood.

This entertaining episode could be explained by Ćesić-Rojs’ animosity towards Ivo Sanader, HDZ leader who wanted Ćesić-Rojs expelled from party and whose sexual orientation have recently became object of endless rumours.
