MK Feiglin: No to Bill that Equates Traditional Family with Same-Gender Relationships
On the last night of Chanukah, MK Moshe Feiglin was invited to light the Chanukah candles at an event organized by the Likud Liberal Movement. Other liberal Likud candidates attended as well, as did a representative from the Likud LGBT community in Israel.
The LGBT representative asked MK Feiglin why he voted against the Yesh Atid Kohl bill; a bill that was proposed to make the taxation of homosexual couples the same as that of normative couples. “The bill does not come to solve a personal problem, which could have been solved with a simple bylaw and garnered my support,” said Feiglin.
“The wording of the Kohl bill equates the traditional family with single-gender relationships,” Feiglin continued. “A large majority of Israelis believe in the values of the classic family. Any attempt to change those fundamental values by legislation is nothing more than coercion of the values of the minority upon the majority. A law is supposed to express values – not to create them and certainly not to force them upon the public,” MK Feiglin concluded.
