Poland and the EU square off

The Europarliament, recently, chastised Poland, for standing up for traditional values. (Article)

By a vote of 325- 124, the European Parliament adopted a statement calling upon Polish lawmakers to reject a proposal by education minister Roman Giertych, and authorized a fact-finding mission to travel to Poland to investigate evidence of "homophobia" in that country's government.

Polish Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski responded to the resolution by noting that the proposed government policy would not limit the rights of homosexuals, but only prohibit the introduction of homosexual propaganda into the schools. He observed that such propaganda "definitely does not serve young people well."

Admittedly, I don't really know what exactly constitutes "homosexual propaganda", but I think I can commend Poland on this one. To not teach that homosexual attraction is normal, right, or good is now apparently a violation of someone's rights. Next thing you know, the EU will be going after Christian Churches for these sorts of, so called, homophobic tendencies.
