The Polish government’s targeted political campaign against the LGBTQ community continues to gain traction, driven by its ultranationalist leading party and galvanized by the institutional church as well as by Polish society, of which a majority identifies as Catholic.
According to the National Catholic Reporter, the Polish government’s Law and Justice majority party seeks to dismantle human rights protections for LGBTQ persons through the ‘Stop Pedophilia’ bill.
This ballot measure initiated by Polish citizens required a minimum of “100,000 signatures for parliamentary consideration,” and received strong support from the Polish Catholic Church. If passed, the bill would criminalize the teaching of sex education in schools and would make homosexuality equal to pedophilia.
In an additional level of clownishness, the German traffic administration has a "gender equality officer"... who is female, of course, and who made this brilliant decision.
