Poland: counterdemonstrators block Gay Pride parade
Warsaw Business Journal ^ | 05/08/2004 | news

Posted on 05/08/2004 6:48:27 AM PDT by Feldkurat_Katz

The Gay and Lesbian Days celebrated in Kraków has aroused heated discussion in the city and somewhat divided local society.

The main bone of contention is today's gay and lesbian demonstration in the Old Town, which according to the organizers is to show gays and lesbians that they do have equal rights. Apart from homosexuals, Amnesty International, various feminist organizations and environmentalists will join the march organized as part of ‘the Culture of Tolerance' festival. However, while gay rights has been accepted as a tenet of modern liberal democracy in the EU for many years, Mlodziez Wszechpolska of the Polish Family League has planned a counter-demonstration and wants to block the gay and lesbian march, supporting his rather reactionary stance with the claim "conservative Kraków is not a place for sexual deviation." (Rzeczpospolita, p.A6) K.J.

(the news has pro-homo spin but it was the only one in English I could find)

This was from May 7th. What actually happened on May 8th was that counterdemonstrators sat on the pavement and blocked the gay march from reaching its final destination. There also was some egg and rock throwing.

Homosexual Agenda Ping + Good NEws From Poland!

These Poles know the score. Remember when they wouldn't let the "abortion ship" land? And there was all kinds of ruckus?

Hmmm - so there was civil disobedience - blocking the "gay" pride parade - and some rock and egg throwing, "No sexual perversion for Krackow".

Let me know if anyone wants on/off this pinglist.

What's the exact situation with Poland joining the EU? Anyone know?

From what I saw...Krakow has been invaded by more traditional European liberals then th erest of Poland.

I hope they stand up against this illness looking to invade Eaastern Europe too.

It's no coincidence homo activists have chosen Krakow. It's a high-profile conservative city, John Paul II was its archbishop, before he got elected.

They are pursuing the same tactic as in US and Western Europe - first, the want to inure the socity. So far, they "only want tolerance". Once they get it, they'll demand more.

The first session of the enlarged European Parliament took place in Strasbourg yesterday, with 162 deputies from the new member countries, including 54 deputies from Poland, participating.

However, contrary to parliamentary norm, the speeches of deputies from this country were dominated by religious fervor and the need for references to God in the European Constitution. "Europe cannot tear itself away from its Christian roots. If it does, it will gradually die," said Law and Justice deputy Aleksander Szczyg?o. Polish Family League deputies even demanded the presence of their interpretation of God in the parliamentary chamber and tried to hang a crucifix on the wall, which, unsurprisingly, led to protests from the astounded deputies of other countries. (Rzeczpospolita, p. A6) A.F.

The battle lines have been drawn! In Aleksander, we see a man of faith and action. God bless and reward him!

Catholic Ping - let me know if you want on/off this list

My father used to tell us about a pious prophecy that salvation for Europe would come from Poland. I think folks who knew about that thought it would be in the person of the Pope. But now I wonder if it isn't the Polish people themselves. God bless them.

Our Lady of Czestachowa, pray for us.
