According to Polish clergymen, a non-heterosexual orientation is not only a sin, but an illness. So, local LGBT community members – lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people – should be ‘cured’ of their diseases.
Together with the government, priests want to ‘treat’ those people to get the “right” sexual orientation. “That sounds like a joke, but it is the official position of Polish Bishop Conference they took during the meeting in Czestochowa” – message from the TVN24 Polish TV channel.
The 27-page, four-chapter document by Polish bishops underlines the acceptance of a decision to establish original treatment facilities and consultation centers “to help LGBT communities in all 27 Polish bishoprics.”
The leading Polish sexologist, Zbigniew Izdebski, said to TVN24:
“They want to turn homosexuals into heterosexuals, which is as equally senseless as turning heterosexuals into homosexuals.”
Nowadays, over 100 cities and towns in Poland (about 1/3 of all the country’s territory), are claimed to be “LGBT-free zones” by local officials.
Among other things, local citizens place banners in bars, restaurants, cinema halls, theaters and parks telling they don’t want to see lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender people there.
