Bravo, Poland!

From The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP):

With its entry into the European Union, Poland has suffered enormous pressure to accept same-sex “marriage” and the whole homosexual agenda. Unlike other nations, Poland has resisted. Mr. Slawomir Olejniczak of the TFP-inspired Fr. Peter Skarga Association for Christian Culture in Krakow has provided the TFP web site with an account of the great cultural battle developing there. He also discusses their actions and the defeats the homosexual movement has suffered.

Here's the story:
In May 2003, after the referendum on Poland's entry into the European Union, homosexual organizations in our country became very active. Their main goal was to have same-sex “marriage” legalized before the official date of Poland’s entry into the EU, one year later.

In December 2003, the TFP-inspired Fr. Peter Skarga Association for Christian Culture stood in defense of marriage and family by opposing a bill that would legalize same-sex unions, and give such couples the same rights as married couples. The bill, however, did not allow homosexual adoption of children.

Supported by the Alliance of the Democratic Left (SLD) and other leftist parties, the homosexual lobby hoped for a quick and quiet legalization of the so-called civil unions. The draft of the bill was sent to the Senate committees at the end of November 2003. Few politicians apart from the interested parties even took notice.
