Levan Vasadze, my good friend and Chairman of World Congress of Families X in Tbilisi, is leading the charge to stop the LGBT movement's attempt to undermine family and faith in the Republic of Georgia.
For years, social liberals have attempted to force LGBT ideology on the Republic of Georgia, a profoundly Christian country with deeply good people, amazing food, and—most importantly—strong traditional values. Unfortunately, the United States' own Embassy has again and again pushed for the LGBT agenda and is currently supporting a so-called "Pride Parade" which has been strongly condemned by the Georgian Orthodox Church. The Patriarch of Georgia, His Holiness Ilya II, is a kind and holy man (with whom I was blessed to meet when he spoke at WCF X in Tbilisi). Patriarch Ilya has made clear that Georgian Christians will not be silent while their Christian roots are undermined and attacked.
