Lech Walesa under fire after anti-gay comments – Telegraph

Way to ruin Casmir Pulaski Day, Lech. I guess by majority, he doesn’t mean the majority that voted. Polish heros aren’t what they used to be.

Walesa, the deeply religious former president of post-Communist Poland, was speaking during an interview on Saturday broadcast by news channel TVN 24 in which he was asked about homosexual rights.

Asked where homosexuals should sit in the parliamentary chamber, he said: “No minority should climb all over the majority. Homosexuals should even sit behind a wall, and not somewhere at the front.

“They must know they are a minority and adapt themselves to smaller things.”

Poland has been struggling with issues such as gay rights, abortion, legalisation of soft drugs and the role of the church in public life as younger Poles seeking a more secular society clash with a deeply religious older generation.
