Rural and Conservative: Polish Towns Go 'LGBT free' Ahead Of Bitter European Election Campaign

Recommended Posts

Teresa Drzewiecka grew up during World War Two, when German and Soviet troops battled for control of her town of Swidnik in eastern Poland. Now 83, she sees another threat to her country’s survival: lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. “Let children have a father and a mother, not such deviations,” said Drzewiecka, resting on a bench in a Swidnik park. “Otherwise there will be fewer and fewer children, and Poland will shrink.” In March, her local council in Swidnik passed a motion to reject what it viewed as the spread of “LGBT ideology” in homes, schools and workplaces. A handful of other areas, mostly in conservative rural Poland, have issued similar statements. Views that are offensive or illegal in many European countries have been widely aired in Poland ahead of the European Parliament elections, where LGBT rights are a hot-button issue. In a bitter campaign, the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party has depicted such rights as dangerous foreign ideas that undermine traditional values in Poland, a staunchly Catholic country...

Of course that conservatives use LGBT as someone who is  an enemy, as someone to fight against and last but not least as someone they can use to raise fear. Before, it was immigrants. This time it's LGBT people...

It's a old tactic: anyone who support "others, not ours", should be accused of betraying the Church and Poland... But you know some people have had it ingrained in their psyche to never back down or back off!

The LGBT community probably isn't the right target.  On the other hand, if you look at the state of Western culture, it's hard to blame Poland for rejecting it wholesale.

Im from Poland

Although I said many times Im quite sceptical for our nation magnificence  this is just blantant lie. 

People in Poland are quite conservative, there is quite a lot of xenophobia, antisemitism, rusophobia or backwardation etc. People in Poland are also often so consumed by envy thats a theme for jokes in our country . This is exacly 40 % of population that will vote on Law and Justice Party.

But if we talk about WWII this is a very bright moment in  our history when you can find the better face of polish nation because as once Churchill said polish nation is great in hard times of defeat or occupation and pitful in a moment of triumph.

Polish population was always divided on 2 parts like patriotic rebeliants against Russian Empire and people that tried to use the situation for the own benefit. A novel  - Rozdziobia was kruki i wrony is best example for that. It tells a story of brave rebeliant who dies in forest and peasant who only thinks how to sell things belonging to this soldier and what to do with injuried horse.

Polish soldiers fought on Western Front, on Eastern Front,  especially n Battle of England, in Africa we also had one of biggest and most effective resistance in our country called Armia Krajowa.

Estimates of the Home Army's 1944 strength range between 200,000 and 600,000, the most commonly cited number being 400,000. This last number would make the Home Army not only the largest Polish underground resistance movement but one of the three largest in Europe during World War II

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Polish_armies_in_World_War_II

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Home_Army

For sure only absolute renegades served under SS control - its true some people were forced to serve in Wehrmacht but not voluntarily and they try to escape at first oportunity.

Learn some history for Gods sake.

We were such good ally for III Reich that Nazis killed 3 milion of Poles and 3 milions of Jews polish citizens. In addition Soviets killed about 150.000 Poles and Ukrainians about the same number of people. 

I know  people in USA really think US Army liberated Europe but the true fact is Wehrmant lost 80 % of soldiers on Eastern Front with some help of Poles who killed as much Nazis as the can 

Just look on this meme

The Holy Bible has a lot to say about this. It seems that few here have much belief in its wisdom.

Judeo-Christianity and Baby Machines...

by Tony Ryals

 

They killed homosexuals didn't they?,

Or at least that's what the Bible says anyway,

And God it says took Onan's life,

Because he wouldn't have sex with his dead brother's wife,

God being strictly "right to life,

But Lot of Sodom and Gomorrah fame,

At least knew how to play God's game,

While his wife turned to salt as God murdered her friends,

Lot was busy watching his daughters rear ends,

And saying his amens,

The Bible says they got him drunk and raped him,

Thus more babies they did make them,

And that's how God saved him,

We know not exactly what sins against God the wicked Sodomites had done,

 But to judge from Lot incest wasn't one,

And of course there's wise King Solomon,

Who took numbers of wives to increase his own reproduction,

While to house them he cut the cedars of Lebanon,

So much for wise King Solomon,

Might as well trust in Allah man,

So they took their women to bed,

And to more little tribesmen this surely led,

Who beat other tribesmen over the head,

And then took their women to bed,

Like this the population continued to grow,

While civilizations would come and civilizations would go,

Thanks to Judeo - Christian - Muslim views of life,

Women knew nothing but reproductive strife,

And men knew nothing but killing,

Of which they were so able and willing,

But now our own reproductions,

Threaten the biosphere's functions,

The old ways no longer apply,

We can't even afford an eye for an eye,

Let alone to go out and multiply,

And if we continue to over reproduce as a species - we die,

If the laws of God and the biosphere are one,

Better to read the soil and celebrate the sun,

Than to thump the Bible and defend the gun,

Those who would not in pornography traffic,

Had better take the Bible and pack it So far that the kiddies can't see it,

Lest there's the danger that they just might read it,
