The minister for Labor, who according to some rumors has taken on the task of “serving” the more conservative communities of New Democracy the specific bill, argued yesterday that marriage is one thing and adoption is another.
An obvious attempt to … fool the citizens, as it has already been documented that same-sex marriage cannot proceed without legalizing adoptions by married gay couples.
However, it seems that in the Maximou House, seat of the Greek Government, they decided not to adopt this strategy of Adonis Georgiades, with the director of the Prime Minister's press office and future MEP of New Democracy, Dimitrios Tsiodras, denying him.
“These two are meant to go together. Because when you talk about marriage you also mean the rights of some children … There is discrimination against children that needs to be removed“, he said, speaking to a TV station and putting an end to A. Georgiades' attempts to salvage what he can from his “conservative” and “right wing” profile.
