      The Consultative Council of the Religious Cults of Romania Asks for
      Mentioning the Family in the Constitution as a Union between a Man and a
      Woman

      The Consultative Council of the Religious Cults of Romania Asks for
      Mentioning the Family in the Constitution as a Union between a Man and a
      Woman

      Met on 20 June 2013 in the annual working session at the Patriarchate
      Palace under the chairmanship of His Beatitude Daniel, Patriarch of
      Romania (according to the Statutes which stipulates chairmanship by
      rotation), the Consultative Council of the Religious Cults of Romania
      asks for mentioning the natural and traditional institution of the
      family in the text of the Romanian Constitution as a union between a man
      and a woman. This position is also supported by all the member religious
      cults, but for the Unitarian Church of Transylvania.

      The Consultative Council of the Religious Cults of Romanian took notice
      of and approved the work of its commissions (Commission for family, good
      health and human dignity, Educational Commission, Commission for the
      cults’ patrimony and national patrimony, Economical – Juridical
      Commission) held on Wednesday, 19 June 2013, at the Patriarchate Palace.

      We mention some of the other problems and decisions adopted:
      -The Consultative Council of the Religious Cults of Romania supports and
      promotes the European civic initiative entitled “One of Us”
      (www.oneofus.eu), designed to provide the juridical protection in the
      European Union of the dignity, right to life and integrity of every
      human being ever since conception, according to the competence of the
      European Union;

      -The Consultative Council of the Religious Cults of Romania appreciates
      the support granted by the Romanian State through the State Secretariat
      for Religious Cults and asks for periodical consultations in matters of
      common interest;

      -The Consultative Council of the Religious Cults of Romania asks for
      speeding up the process of retrocession of the goods that used to belong
      to the religious cults and for identifying a legal solution for solving
      the effective retrocession of some representative buildings of the
      religious cults of Romania, namely: Makri Stojkovic building – House
      with Atlantes of Timişoara of the Serbian Orthodox Diocese of Timişoara,
      Szekely Miko Reformed College of St. Gheorghe city of the Reformed
      Church of Romania, building of Dinu Lipatti high school of Bucharest of
      the Romanian Orthodox Church and the building situated in 15 Al. D.
      Xenopol St. of Bucharest of the Romanian Church United with Rome,
      Greek-Catholic;

      -The Consultative Council of the Religious Cults of Romania asks the
      central and local public authorities to observe the juridical laws and
      decisions forbidding the constructions of great dimensions close to the
      places of worship, to impose a new demeanour towards the churches
      historical or art monuments, and no longer issue licenses for such
      constructions in the areas protected.

      In this sense, the situations of “Saint Joseph” Roman Catholic Cathedral
      of Bucharest, of the Reformed church no. 2 of Cluj-Napoca, and of
      Hunchiar Mosque of Constanţa were presented.

      -The Consultative Council of the Religious Cults of Romania decided to
      send a letter to His Excellency Ban Ki-Moon, General Secretary of the
      UNO, concerning the state the Christians in Syria.

      The Consultative Council of the Religious Cults of Romania is an
      organisation with ethic, social, autonomous, apolitical,
      non-governmental character, with no legal personality and non-profit,
      made up of the:
      - Romanian Orthodox Church
      - Serbian Orthodox Diocese of Timişoara
      - Roman Catholic Church
      - Romanian Church United with Rome, Greek-Catholic
      - Archdiocese of the Armenian Church
      - Russian Orthodox Church of Old Rite of Romania
      - Reformed Church of Romania
      - A.C. Evangelical Church of Romania
      - Lutheran Evangelical Church of Romania
      - Unitarian Church of Transylvania
      - Christian Church according to the Gospel of Romania – Union of the
      Christian Church according to the Gospel of Romania
      - Jewish Communities Federation of Romania – Mosaic Cult
      - Muslim Cult of Romania
      -
      According to the stipulations of the Consultative Council of the
      Religious Cults of Romania, from 1 October 2013 forward, the
      chairmanship of the Council will be taken over for one year time by the
      Roman Catholic Church.
