Poland’s ruling party leader has said, “imported” attacks on the family and on children are threatening the nation’s identity and existence.
Speaking at a conference held by Catholic Action in the city of Wloclawek, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, reportedly identified a number of issues he believes are a threat to Poland’s future.
“We are dealing with a direct attack on the family and children… the sexualisation of children, that entire LGBT movement, gender [theory],” Kaczynski said.
“These ideologies, philosophies, all of this is imported, these are not internal Polish mechanisms,” he said. “They are a threat to Polish identity, to our nation, to its existence and thus to the Polish state.”
Kaczynski also urged Poland’s 38 million citizens to respect the role of the Catholic church and the Christian faith in Polish life, whatever your personal religious beliefs may be.
“To call into question the position of the Catholic Church is a non-patriotic act regardless of beliefs,” he said.
