A Polish bishop dismissed Wednesday suggestions that the country's bishops want to force people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender to undergo therapy.
In a Sept. 2 statement, Bishop Józef Wróbel, an auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Lublin and chairman of the bioethics committee of the Bishops' Conference of Poland, said that it was a "misconception" to suggest that the bishops wanted to coerce people into therapy.
His comments come days after the Polish bishops issued a 27-page document on the Church's response to the so-called "LGBT+" movement.
That text endorsed the creation of counseling centers, "to help people wishing to regain their sexual health and natural sexual orientation."
