They hate gays in Poland

By Michael J.W. Stickings

From the BBC:

The European Parliament has called on Poland to stop public leaders inciting discrimination against homosexuals.

The resolution follows a statement by a deputy education minister that Poland was drafting a law to punish teachers who "promoted" homosexuality.

Poland's PM later said there would be no discrimination against gay teachers.

But MEPs repeated an appeal to EU anti-racism experts to look into "the emerging climate of racist, xenophobic and homophobic intolerance in Poland".

Some parts of Europe, it seems, still have a long, long way to go.

  • But Poland is the NEW Europe, the US-Friendly Europe! They're just following the trail blazed by the US under the Republicans. Decadent OLD Europe, on the other hand, thinks that gay people are just fine.

  • Oligarchic capitalism, homophobia... Sure, the Bushies would feel right at home there.
