Reacting to a resolution passed yesterday by the European Parliament – condemning
Poland for “homophobia” – World Congress of Families International Secretary Allan Carlson charged, “The European Union is engaging in Soviet-style mind-control.”
World Congress of Families IV – the largest international pro-family conference – will convene in Warsaw exactly two weeks from today (May 11-13).
The resolution – which passed by a vote of 325 to 124 (with 150 abstentions) – was in response to legislation proposed by Polish Education Minister Roman Giertych to prevent teachers from indoctrinating children on the gay lifestyle. Giertych explained, “One must limit homosexual propaganda so that children won’t have an improper view of the family.”
During the debate on the resolution, members of the European Parliament described Poland’s defense of the traditional family as “repulsive” and “hateful.” These “diatribes … must stop” said MEP Rour Martine. “These are not Europe’s values,” Martine insisted.
Carlson countered: “The normalization of homosexuality is a value of Europe’s elite. The ‘values’ of a majority of the European Parliament are one reason Europe has the lowest birthrates in the world. If it had a self-preservation instinct, the EP would be promoting the natural family, instead of castigating Poland for its defense of family values.”
Carlson continued: “What remarkable arrogance. These Parliamentarians want to force the Poles to allow the sexual indoctrination of Polish children. They want to force Catholic Poland to embrace the worldview of the Amsterdam red light district.”
“Given what passes for education on the subject in the United States – one-sided pleading for a particular point of view, with dissent brutally suppressed – the Poles are wise to consider this legislation.”
The World Congress of Families is proud to hold its fourth Congress among the brave people of Poland, who’ve maintained their traditions of faith, family and freedom in the face of incredible adversity.
“In the 20th century, the Poles fought and beat the Nazis and communists,” Carlson observed. “I doubt they’ll have much difficulty standing up to the new totalitarians within the European Union.”
