Report: European Parliament investigates Poland over law limiting homosexual propaganda
From Catholic News Agency
The Committee on Civil Liberties of the European Parliament has ordered an investigation into a future law against homosexual propaganda in Poland, in order to determine if the norm will violate EU laws.
According to international news agencies, the EU committee has requested that its internal services determine if the measure would violate an EU directive from 2002 barring discrimination in the workplace. The review has been requested by Dutch EU representatives Kathalijne Buitenweg and Sophia In’t Veld.
Several days ago, the Poland’s Minister of Education together with the Polish League of Families proposed a law protecting children in the country’s schools from aggressive and obscene homosexual propaganda that presents the gay lifestyle as “normal and acceptable.”
With this law’s passage administrators who allow homosexual activists to enter their schools and thus protect the rights of parents “to educate their children according to the values system that they choose.”
“The homosexual agenda is a threat to that freedom,” explained the spokesman of the League, Krzysztof Bosak, a well-known pro-family activist in Poland. “In Poland homosexual activists have tried to distribute obscene pamphlets in schools. This must stop, for the good of our children, so that their security and freedom are free of this harassment,” he added.
He also specified that “nobody is attacking persons with homosexual tendencies. What we are opposed to the dangerous political and social movement that uses the problems of gays to promote an agenda that is dangerous for the foundations of our civilization.”
If the review concludes that the Polish law violates EU norms, the EU Parliament could ask the Committee and the EU Council to act against Poland.
