Warsaw, Poland, Aug 19, 2019 / 09:00 am
The leader of Poland's ruling party praised the Archbishop of Krakow on Sunday for his opposition to the redefinition of marriage and gender ideology in the country.
Jaroslaw Kaczynski, leader of Poland's ruling Law and Justice (PiS) Party, said at a campaign event in Southeast Poland on Aug. 18 that he was "grateful" to Archbishop Marek Jędraszewski for his statement earlier this month that attempts to redefine marriage and impose gender ideology in Poland were part of a "rainbow plague."
Calling the promotion of LGBT ideology a "hard offensive" and a "travelling theatre," Kaczynski said that "we are the ones who are harmed by this, it must be unmasked and discarded," Reuters reported on Sunday.
Archbishop Jędraszewski said in an August 1 homily, commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising, that "our land is no longer affected by the red plague, which does not mean that there is no new one that wants to control our souls, hearts and minds," Reuters reported.
