  1. poland should be rejected from the EU until that can agree to the human rights for EVERY ONE!

  2. So then, for this old bigot, we Gays are to become the new Jews as they push their moral panic!What a detestable old queen this man is. I have always had doubts about him seeing he’s single, lives at home with his mother and could well be a closetted old queen!

    Roberto, I echo your statement. Time for the EU to grow a huge pair of balls and boot Poland and others from EU membership once and for all. Either they play by the rules or they face expulsion to their own detriment, NO exceptions, plus they pay back all of the financial aid they’ve received from taxpayers like you and I. Time to get tough, EU!

    Lech, sotay corva robish? Spier Dally! (Phonetic spelling, sorry. My polish is not up to much.)

  5. Who can blame so many Polish people who have migrated here if ‘that’ is the attitude towards Human Rights Gay people by their Polish leadership.Should someone tell their leadership they ARE in the EU?

  6. Rules are rules, and if they want to stay in the EU, then they have to obey those rules, just like the rest of us.

    Surely there is more chance of them towing the line IF they remain in the EU. If they are booted out, there will be no incentive to change.Whilst in the EU, the threat of sanctions is a far more valuable tool in coercing the Polish government to embrace equality.

  8. It’s a good idea to question homosexuality.

    Dear Friends,Hopefully this is a last year of presidency of this “Lame Duck” (Kaczynski in Polish is close to Kaczka – Duck in English).Mr. Tusk, who is conservative right PM, is more open that Kaczynski’s Tween. Situation is better then before 2007, when Jaroslaw Kaczynski (tween brother of Lech, and… lonely guy living with cat and mother) was PM. We are ready to take a new way, but we still need support from you.Can you help us?

  10. Quote=”I have always had doubts about him seeing he’s single, lives at home with his mother and could well be a closetted old queen!”Actually president Kaczynski is married and has children, you got it all mixed up.

  11. All of this is down to the malign occupant of the Vatican.The manner in which the Roman catholic Church is mobilising world-wide to extinguish the hope of gay people to form legally recognised relationships is becoming quite frightening.There is an underlying agenda to associate homosexuality with paedophile abuse by relating gay partnerships to a threat to the family.One should remind oneself that the late Father Brendon Smyth who initiated the whole scandal of child-abuse by Catholic priests was not an homosexual but a man who abused both boys and girls.He was able to do so because of the Roman Catholic Church’s predisposition to coerce and dominate its flock such that no-one dares to speak out – the priest is all powerful.Ratzinger is an evil man.

  12. this speech from president kaczka is part of his effort to get a referendum in poland about the lisbon treaty in stead of a parliamentary vote. since his party PiS and his gay twin prime minister brother were trown out after the 2007 elections, let him eventually have his referendum. the general feeling in poland is that the treaty will then be approved, including the human rights clause. most of the PiS program is a true copy of the NSDAP program from the third Reich, with a catholic fundamentalist sauce over it, and is bound to become insignificant soon.the longer Poland is in the EU, the more people spit on the kaczkas.

    Poisonous little mono-zygotic dwarves at it again.

    Gendy, here in the states, the majority of paedophiles are usually heterosexual men who are attracted to both genders, whatever is available to them. Unfortunately for the priest scandal, the majority of times paedophilia was committed, only boys were readily available in comparison to the number of girls. Paedophilia is gender neutral, its about power over those who have none, as perverse as that is. Unfortunately again, the Catholic church equates paedophilia solely with gay men, as do many catholic psychologists though none have acutally demonstrated that in the scientific literature. Homophobia is acceptable behavior in many of the world religions.

  15. “Homophobia is acceptable behavior in many of the world religions.”Thank God for that.

    Neil S, get a life you freak. How sad do you have to be to come into a gay site and spout your stupid little homophobic comments… I’m sure it makes you feel one bit less an impotent twit than you actually are in the real world. You’re a living example that stupidity is now (unfortunately) acceptable in society.

    I have to say if I were the unfortunate couple who had my cherished wedding video liberated by el Presidente, I wouldn’t be too chuffed at the use of phrases like “lurid images of gay marriage” to describe it, particularly in the gay press.

  18. Sister Mary Clarence, I came here to express my outrage at a PinkNews writer referring to this couple’s wedding pictures as “lurid images of gay marriage” but I see you’ve beaten me to it.If we keep agreeing like this people are going to start to talk!

    While I do not beleive that Poland should suffer any EU sanctions for it’s views (why punish people the massive Polish diaspora in the UK that would find themselves isolated), I do beleive that it is time for the international Gay community to mobilise and make a complete, unelectable fool out of this horrible little shit, Lech Kaczynski. I urge all gay people, who give a shit about their rights, to take whatever action they can to tarnish, embarrass or just tread on the reputation of this fool. We can make a difference. Don’t let him think that we are a “pushover”. Hit him hard.
