Polish election: Leader targets gay rights as threat to society

Poland has seen an increasing number of equality marches in 2019, including this one in Torun

LGBT+ rights have become the single biggest cultural issue in Poland's election campaign ahead of Sunday's vote. In the eyes of Jaroslaw Kaczynski's national-conservative party and the Catholic Church, those rights are a threat to traditional Polish families and values. This time around, according to Mr Kaczynski, the threat comes from LGBT+ people and from Europe, where families can have"two mummies or two daddies", he said.Jaroslaw Kaczynski has highlighted Poland's Catholic heritage in focusing on LGBT+ issues

He’s right

I wish the US would've held our ground on this as well 😐

Stop all EU funding. They have been sanctioned before. If their principles are so different perhaps it’s time they go on their own or rejoin the Russian federation.

Another reason to get out of the EU

Well we may not like it but it is the right of citizens to decide what is lawful or not in their own country. Considering their history of returning to Catholicism after years of Communist control it is perhaps a little understandable, albeit sad!

Poland - stops migrants from non eu countries, don't like gay rights and yet thinks uk leaving EU is wrong.

What is this right wing obsession with where people point their plumbing? If it isn't pointed in your direction it's none of your business.

I'd say murder, violent crime and corruption are more to be concerned about.

Jaroslaw Kaczynski's is allowed his opinion even if it is negative but if he gets lots of abuse he shouldn't expect sympathy LGBTQ people deserve to be treated the same as heterosexuals this is 2019 not 1939

Is it heck x

I hope PIS will be voted out next Sunday!

That’s their choice- cover France problems
