Poland is gearing up for a parliamentary election on October 13, and its conservative ruling party is “saying it like it is” these days. Jaroslaw Kaczynski, Poland’s Law and Justice leader, recently took a stand against gay pride marches while campaigning in Stalowa Wola:
“The hard offensive, this traveling theater that is showing up in different cities to provoke and then cry... we are the ones who are harmed by this, it must be unmasked and discarded… (We must) live in freedom, and not be subject to all that is happening to the west of our borders... where freedom is being eliminated.”
In the same speech he thanked the Archbishop of Krakow, who called gay rights a “rainbow plague” in Poland. Wola was here referring to an August 1, 2019 sermon marking the 75th anniversary of the Warsaw uprising by Polish resistance fighters against the Nazi occupation, wherein Archbishop Marek Jedraszewski had argued that Poland is no longer affected by the red plague of Marxists or Bolsheviks but by a "rainbow flag born of the same spirit."
Speaking at a Mass at St. Mary's Basilica, the Archbishop warned that this new plague wants to "control our souls, hearts and minds."
If the LGTB community really wishes to establish better relations with the Catholic Church in Poland and elsewhere, perhaps they should stop appropriating (and then desecrating) revered Polish Catholic symbols and icons:
Elzbieta Podlesna, a 51-year-old LGBT activist, plastered images of Poland's most sacred icon of the Mother of God of Czestochowa, the Black Madonna of Czestochowa, on walls, garbage bins and mobile toilets near St. Dominik’s church in Plock.
Polish Catholics were so offended that the police had to finally get involved, temporarily detaining Podlesna and holding her for questioning.
If all they want is to be accepted in Poland, how exactly does offending millions of religious Polish people help the LGBT folks achieve their stated objective? It's almost as if they're trying to intimidate and even terrorize people of faith.
And now both the Archbishop of Krakow and the leader of Poland's Law and Justice Party fear their Christian country is under attack? Now why in the world would they ever think that?
