World Congress of Families

World Congress of Families (auch WCF) sind internationale, religiös-familistisch orientierte und - inzwischen - jährlich tagender Kongresse, mit Sitz in den Vereinigten Staaten[1].

Organisation

Eines der Ziele der Kongresse ist die Restauration der „natürlichen Familie“, um so das Fundament der Gesellschaft zu sichern.[2] In ihrem "mission statement" heißt es:

"Our mission is to help secure the foundations of society by uniting and empowering leaders worldwide to respect, protect, and defend:
* the natural family founded on marriage between a man and a woman;
* parental rights and the welfare of children, including their need for both a mother and a father;
* the dignity and sanctity of all human life from conception; and
* freedom of speech, religion, and conscience in an atmosphere of respect for all."[3] 

Grundlage des World Congress of Families bzw. des IOF ist zudem die Kaptstadt-Erklärung, in der es unter anderem heißt:

"Eine zivilisierte Kultur schützt deswegen die Ehe und mit ihr die ganze Gesellschaft. Sie fördert die Treue und betrachtet Sex außerhalb der Ehe als Missbrauch. Sie schützt vor Pornografie, Promiskuität und Scheidungen; und sie schützt, indem sie jedem Versuch, die Ehe umzudefinieren, die Stirn bietet: weder gleichgeschlechtliche, noch Gruppenbindungen, weder sexuell offene, noch zeitlich befristete Gemeinschaften sind als Ehen anzuerkennen."[4]

Gründung

Die Grundlagen für den WCF wurde 1995 von Allan C. Carlson gelegt und waren ein Projekt des The Howard Center for Family, Religion and Society in Illionis. Nach Angabe von Claudia Ciobanu waren an der Gründung auch Anatoly Antonov and Viktor Medkov von der Moskauer Staats-Universität beteiligt.[5]

Der erste World Congress of Families fand 1997 in Prag statt.[6][1] Das Howard Center for Family, Religion & Society ist heute unter dem Namen International Organization for the Family (IOF) bekannt.[7]

Partner*innen

Nach Auskunft des IOF hatte der WCF 2017 folgende Partner*innen[8]:

Die WCF-Kongresse

World Congress of Family organisierte bislang 11 Kongresse in Prag, Genua, Mexiko City, Warschau, Amsterdam, Madrid, Sydney, Salt Lake City, Tiflis/ Georgien, Budapest / Ungarn und Chișinău / Moldavien[9][10][1]. Der eigentlich als achter in Moskau geplante Kongress musste aufgrund des Ukraine-Konflikts ausfallen, wie Gabriele Kuby in einem Artikel für Kath.net schreibt. Der Kongress wurde dann, so Kuby, "den russischen Gastgebern" überlassen.[11]
