Taking "Anti-Gay" Politicos Down Ahead of Election

Polish Gays Making A List, Checking It Twice

Oregonian gays aren’t the only ones getting organized.

As their parliamentary election rapidly approaching, Polish queens have compiled a list of political enemies.

Marek Ryszard and his allies have cataloged Poland’s biggest meanings, including deputy minister Roman Giertych, who hopes to infuse his homophobic leanings into the nation’s school systems.

Of the list, Ryszard remarks:

There’s a parliamentary election coming. We want to enable the gay community to make a conscious choice and this is the reason for creating a list with the names of the people who have hindered us from achieving our goals.

Though gay activists claim their efforts will help homos make informed decisions, other politically-minded Pols aren’t so sure. The International Helsinki Federation for Human Rights’ Professor Andrzej RzepliÅ„ski blasted the list, saying:

If there is no evidence for the candidate’s homophobic behaviour then including him on the list is a crime. Such campaign will lower the already dubious level of the election campaign.

RzepliÅ„ski trepidation stems from the list’s allegedly uneven slant – some of the politicos are included solely because they don’t make gay marriage a central issue.

Meanwhile, former Polish president Aleksander Kwasniewski blasted the Evil Twins – President Lech Kaczynski and PM Jaroslaw Kaczynski – saying they and their conservative, irrational politics had turned Poland into an international laughing stock. What? People can’t take Lech seriously when he tries to ban gay pride with scare tactics, like suggesting homosexuality will end the human race:

If that kind of approach to sexual life were to be promoted on a grand scale, the human race would disappear.

Imagine what grand changes would occur in mores if the traditional links between men and women were set aside.

That’s not a laughing matter. Oh, wait, yes it is!
