Walesa avoids criminal charges for criticism of gay-rights activists
March 18, 2013
Poland’s former president, Lech Walesa, will not face criminal charges for criticizing militant homosexuals, prosecutors have announced.
Gay-rights activists called for criminal charges after Walesa, the hero of the Solidarity movement, said that homosexuals should not be allowed to impose their views on society. “I’m fed up with their flaunting,” he told a Polish television audience.
“A minority cannot impose itself on the majority,” Walesa said.

What an up-front statement! Perhaps if we all were equally frank, "they" would have to lock us all up.

This shouldn't even be news; the possibility shouldn't occur to anyone. That sodomites and their allies can suggest it without being laughed off stage says volumes about the degradation of modern Western society.

Too bad Walesa can't become the president here. Perhaps sending this little tidbit to the current U.S. administration might be an idea?

God bless Lech Walesa! He is speaking for Catholic Poland, a nation consecrated to Mary a thousand years ago. He keeps the faith.
