Obama State Department v. the Catholic Church in Poland

When you come right down to it, the Obama Administration doesn't like the Catholic Church.  They don't like the Church's position on abortion, and they don't like the Church's position on homosexual practice.

So the State Department identifies the Church as the enemy.

While surveying the landscape for inroads to push the homosexual agenda into Poland, American embassy officials under the Obama administration complained that the Catholic Church teaching is a major source of “homophobia” in the heavily Catholic country, according to private cables recently published by Wikileaks. 

...Officials did note that “the Polish Episcopate has condemned violence and discrimination against gays and lesbians,” but said that message is ignored by local priests teaching that sexual attraction to the same gender is “a deviant condition.”

“Moreover, the Church continues to label homosexual acts as sins and calls on homosexuals to practice abstinence.  Most Polish opponents of gay rights cite ‘Catholic values’ and ‘natural law’ to support their views,” the cable continues....

Yup.  And the Church continues to label adultery, murder, and theft as 'sins,' too.  Imagine that!
