Since 1989, church and state have tried to impose on the society their views of morality by extolling the virtues of the traditional family and by condemning homosexuality and abortion as dangerous practices threatening the very existence of the Romanian nation. The parliamentary debates on lifting the ban on homosexual behavior and on legalizing abortion have proved illustrative of the tension between church and state, and of the churches’ efforts to influence the legislative vote occasionally by persuasion and at times by condemnation.
