In a close vote, Poland’s lower house of parliament (Sejm) has rejected legislation to create same-sex civil partnerships. The Civil Platform bill, supported by Prime Minister Donald Tusk and brought forward by the ruling Civic Platform party, was rejected in the first sitting by 228 to 211.

Two other bills that would have recognized same-sex unions, which were brought forward by homosexual MP Robert Biedron of the Palikot Movement party, were also rejected by solid majorities.

Conservatives rejected the bills as an attack on the family and the traditional identification of marriage with procreation. The government’s bill was also opposed by the justice minister, Jaroslaw Gowin, who argued that the legislation was incompatible with Poland’s constitution, Article 18, which defines marriage as a union of a man and a woman.

“Society can’t fund a sweet existence to unstable, barren unions of people from whom it doesn’t benefit only because of the sexual attachment that binds them,” said Krystyna Pawlowicz of the opposition Law and Justice party.

The bills, Pawlowicz said, seek to “exhibitionistically allow for displays, in the public sphere, of sexual inclinations that violate the sense of aesthetics and morality.”

A 2009 poll found that at the time there was little support in the general public for same-sex unions. It found that only 14 per cent polled supported same-sex “marriage.” Seventy-five percent were opposed and 11 per cent unsure.

Civil Unions are the camel’s nose.....under the tent. That is what we had here and now that wasn’t “equal” “rights”. The Truth is there is no “Right” to sodomize other people and to give them recognition for doing those intrinsically evil acts.

The behavior is unnatural, dysfunctional, immature and dehumanizing.

It conditions children—through the culture if they give it “recognition”-—to talk “nicely” about vile, dehumanizing behavior. Evil should never be sugar-coated. All this sodomy “right” stuff is just the start of eliminating God and Christianity from Western Culture.

This fight has been going on in earnest, since Voltaire and Rousseau.....look at what they did to the Catholic Churches and priests in France during the Revolution. Godlessness. Complete barbarianism and evil Leftism.
