Polish President AntiGay Remarks Spark Anger During Dublin Visit

Pic of President of Ireland beside very small, in many ways, President of Poland.Our old friend the Polish President rubbed us up the wrong way this week when he decided to tell us how much Poland and Ireland had in common. It seems that the gays are a threat to human existence: “If that kind of approach to sexual life were to be promoted on a grand scale, the human race would disappear”.

Various politicians from across the political partites as well as the Lord Mayor of Dublin have rejected his comments. Good, the man is an embarrassment to his country and the EU.

GCN talk about it and there is a transcript from an Irish Independent article here. Reuters have picked it up too.

I love when he says “Among my personal friends there are individuals affected by this different sexual orientation, or homosexuality, but they enjoy full rights, they are able to move forward in various spheres of life”. I wonder who he might be talking about?
