Lithuania: President Says Country Not Ready for Civil Unions

Written by scott on February 22nd, 2013

Just like we’ve heard countless times before, in Lithuania we’re being told by the country’s president that we must wait – that it’s not yet time to give our LGBT brothers and sisters equal rights, Gay Star News reports:

The president of LIthuania, Dalia Grybauskaitė told journalists that she thinks the country is not ready for a discussion on gay marriage although she thinks it’s worthwhile. ‘I think these discussions in Lithuania are very premature and are only starting. I think it’s worth holding discussions on any issue in Lithuania. And when the time comes, then we’ll decide. I think it’s a very premature discussion’, she told journalists.’

And somehow the right time never seems to come until the issue is forced, one way or another.
