MEDIA ADVISORY, April 13 /Christian Newswire/ -- Responding to criticism of a Polish bill banning discussion of homosexuality in the schools, Larry Jacobs, vice president of the World Congress of Families, wondered if it's preferable to let the left use public schools to indoctrinate in favor of the gay lifestyle.
The bill, supported by both Poland's President Lech Kaczynski and Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski, would prohibit "the promotion of homosexuality in the schools."
Said Jacobs: "Radical homosexual groups, the left generally and the European Union have been going nuts over this proposed legislation. They're calling the sponsors 'homophobes' and 'haters' -- when, in reality, all the bill requires is neutrality on an emotionally-charged issue."
Jacobs continued: "The bill does not require that schools warn against the palpable dangers of the gay acts. Rather, it bans any discussion of a lifestyle whose advancement offends people of faith."
By contrast, in the United States, many schools are used as propaganda forums. Children are taught that homosexuality is a perfectly acceptable lifestyle, that hatred of gays (so-called homophobia) is rampant, and that anyone who opposes the militant gay agenda is a bigot -- comparable to a racist or an anti-Semite.
Some schools even give explicit instruction in how to perform various unnatural acts, in the guise of fighting AIDS.
Jacobs noted: "On April 18, schools across the United States will participate in what's called a 'Day of Silence,' where students and staff refuse to speak, to demonstrate their opposition to so-called anti-gay hatred. In reality, this too is meant to advance the homosexual agenda. Only one point of view is presented. Last year, over 4,000 junior high schools, high schools and colleges participated in this indoctrination."
Much of Europe has gone even further. In 2006, the European Parliament passed a resolution which practically mandates same-sex marriage, compares "homophobia" to racism and anti-Semitism, and orders member states to pass hate-crimes legislation to stifle dissent on the issue of homosexuality and its social consequences.
Partially to stand in solidarity with the people of Poland, World Congress of Families IV will convene in Warsaw in one month (May 11-13). More than 3,000 pro-family leaders, activists, scholars and parliamentarians are expected to attend the Warsaw Congress, whose motto is "The Natural Family: Springtime For Europe And The World." President Kaczynski is serving as honorary patron of the Congress and will make opening remarks.
