The Family: Poland and Croatia Love It. Others---Well...

This last weekend saw a major conference on the family taking place in Poland. As we mentioned below, Poland was subject to a NastyGram from the EUroweenie establishment because Poland refuses to bend over to the family-destruction program of the EU.

While most of my 8 readers may think that this is a bit of blogger-"Afghanistaning", the event was more than an excuse to visit Warsaw and Czestachowa. It was serious business.

How do I know? The US anti-family folks actually sent a spy. What did she have to say?

Today marked the opening day of the World Congress of Families IV. The three day conference, titled, The Natural Family-Springtime for Europe and the World is being held in Warsaw, Poland and brings together some of the biggest opponents to sexual and reproductive health and rights from the United States and around the world.

...The approximately 2,000 participants clapped loudly each time speakers like Richard Wilkins, of the Doha International Research Institute for Family & Development, Paul Mero, of The Sutherland Institute, and Allan Carlson, of the Howard Center for Family, Religion and Society passionately cried out for governments to enact policies "friendly and encouraging to the natural family"—the oppositions' code phrase for policies that criminalize abortion, prohibit same-sex marriage, eliminate comprehensive sexuality education, and ban access to contraception. At no time was the audience's resounding applause more frightening than after a speech given by Roman Giertych, Poland's Minister of Education whose statements like "truth is on our side—in the heartbeats of the unborn," and a description of his party's current proposals to the Polish government resulted in a near-standing ovation. One proposal would mandate primary and secondary schools to teach that abortion is a crime and a social and moral evil that must be severely penalized. A second proposal would also help to instill hate in youth by forbidding the teaching of "homosexual propaganda"—this too would be criminalized.

The horror! The unmitigated GALL of!

I've been familiar with Allan Carlson's work for a long time; he was once the principal of the Rockford Institute, and their newsletters were simply chock-full of counter-cultural studies and facts--that is, he published the studies which refuted the lies and half-truths of the Left.

And for those who still don't understand the "Bush-hating" of the Left and its MSM allies:

Giertych and his hate-rousing speech was followed today by several other speakers, including Ellen Sauerbery, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration, who opened her speech by saying to the audience "I bring you greetings from President Bush!" She then went on to say that this Administration "values strengthening the family as an important goal for the sake of our common humanity" and congratulated Poland on its own courageous "pro-family" policies.

Poland does not stand alone in Europe (although they've been there before...) Croatia has joined them as a Pariah, or so say the EUroweenies. Why?

Croatia has been targeted by the European Parliament over a sex education curriculum that opposes homosexuality and teaches abstinence before marriage (!!)

They condemned the curriculum as “gender-biased” and said it features “negative attitudes towards homosexuality, thus contradicting Croatian laws.”

The sex education program has received the approval of Croatia’s education ministry but still needs to be approved by the ministry of health before being introduced into the schools.

The EP’s move against Croatia follows a resolution passed two weeks ago by the EP to take “homophobic” countries to court. First on their target list was Poland, which members of the EP vilified as “hateful” and “repulsive” for refusing to promote homosexuality in schools, in a debate in Brussels April 25.

In the wonderful words of PJBuchanan: "....ride to the sound of the guns."
