Krakow, Poland, Oct 8, 2019 / 09:30 am America/Denver (CNA).
The Archbishop of Krakow has compared the LGBT rights movement in Poland to communism. Archbishop Marek Jędraszewski made the comparison in a pastoral letter to the archdiocese released on Sept. 28, as he announced a new initiative to encourage people to pray for Poland.
In the letter, Jędraszewski said that the LGBT rights movement is “the next great threat to our freedom,” and “of a totalitarian nature.” He said that the movement, like that of communism, stems from a “radical rejection of God.”
“As a consequence of this rejection, a new vision of man is being proclaimed in which he becomes a caricature of himself,” said the archbishop.
“As part of gender ideology, there are attempts to obliterate the natural differences between woman and man. Moreover, through the aggressive propaganda of LGBT ideology in the name of so-called ‘tolerance’ and ‘progress,’ that which is most sacred to us is mocked.”
Jędraszewski was also concerned that conscience rights were being eroded in the name of promoting the LGBT agenda, and that people of faith are being led away from “the principles of their Christian faith.”
