Croatia, the European Union’s newest nation, has seen a large part of its population vote in some bigoted referendum to oppress the equality of same-sex couples by banning gay marriage. It’s being hailed as “a victory” for Catholic Church-backed Conservatives, according to an Associated Press report.
Sigh . . .
According to Wikipedia, “tourism (in Croatia) is a significant source of revenue during the summer, with Croatia ranked the 18th most popular tourist destination in the world. . . . Tourism dominates the Croatian service sector and accounts for up to 20% of Croatian GDP.”
Maybe not so much anymore, though, huh? I mean, why would anyone who supports equal rights for same-sex couples spend their tourism dollars in Croatia? You would think that vacationers will boycott the country on principle. Yes, I can see the country’s tourism revenue dropping considerably.
Yup, back to the dark ages.
A growing trend in the “Disunited States of Europe”…
Love thy neighbour seems to have not been printed in their bibles!
A shame they’ve taken this view. Croatia has for decades been a popular naturist holiday destination which began many years ago when former King Edward VIII and Wallace Simpson swam nude off the nearby islands, setting something of a trend for naturism along the Dalmatian coast ever since.
Well, I imagine they will lose some naturist vacationers . . .
