Homophobe of the Year is Anton Chromík

THE WINNER of the third year of the anti-poll Homophobic of the Year has become the spokesman of the Alliance for Family (AZR) organisation supporting the traditional family and organiser of the failed February referendum on family, Anton Chromík.

He was nominated for his statement foreseeing the future world in which LGBTI people will have equal rights: “They will decide on the lives of other people, their professions, careers – and this has always ended up in dictatorships in history, and sometimes even with mass murders,” the SITA newswire quoted him as having said.

Roman-Catholic priest Marián Kuffa who ended up second explained how he sees a same-sex partnership: “These are not just ordinary murderers but I say these are mass murderers; this is a genocide of our nation!”

Apart from him and Chromík, the recent nominations included also MPs who inserted the definition of “marriage as a unique bond between a man and a woman” into the Slovak Constitution. Tennis player Karin Habšudová, in an advertisement for the referendum, explained what family means to her: “For me, family means cohabitation, or a relationship, or a bond, or ehm, something like that, of two people – one man and one woman.”

The poll has been organised on the occasion of the International Day Against Homophobia – May 17 – by the non-governmental organisations Human Rights Institute / Inštitút ľudských práv (IĽP) and Rainbow Slovakia / Dúhové Slovensko. More than 2,600 people voted in it, with this number increasing each year, SITA wrote.
