Will we become Sikhs?

Marek Jurek

The day before the homosexual parade in Warsaw one of its organizers revealed that the President of the European Parliament Jerzy Buzek was conducting an active policy to incline the EU countries to make legislative changes, thus meeting the demands of the political homosexual movement. I write ‘revealed’ because the Polish public opinion does not know anything about it and Krystian Legierski, who spoke about it, indicated that Prof. Buzek spoke about these topics abroad. It is worth reminding that the Civic Platform presented the appointment of Prof. Buzek for the President of the European Parliament as the horizon of the European politics for next years. Now when we have achieved it we can look at what is hidden behind the horizon.
The followers of the Constitution for Europe (the prototype of the Treaty of Lisbon) lulled the Christian opinion telling it a wonderful fable about Article I-52 of the European Constitution. Its regulations were to be a strong confirmation of the openness of the EU authorities to the Christian heritage and life of Europe’s nations as well as the proof of groundlessness of the Christian criticism of the treaty.
I have made several appeals not to get excited about this regulation, which proposed ‘churches and religious associations or communities’ and ‘philosophical and non-confessional organisations’, equally treated with the first group, ‘an open, transparent and regular dialogue.’ The final and only result of this regulation is that in Europe the Church and Christianity have no more rights than the most radical projects of de-Christianisation, theosophy or the conviction that the world does not exist. Today, as the poet writes, the suspicions have already been confirmed by evidence. Realising Article I-52 (which became Article 17 in the Treaty of Lisbon), in a few months the EU authorities will organise a summit with atheists and Masonic organisations using the principle of parity and thus postponing this year’s meetings with religious communities. Recently, within the framework of the other ‘trend of dialogue’ the President of the European Council Herman Van Rompuy, the President of the European Commission José Manuel Barroso and the President of the European Parliament Jerzy Buzek have talked to Christian bishops, rabbis and imams, representatives of Hinduism and leaders of the Sikhs about the issue of poverty. So far the meetings of leaders of atheist movements on the one hand and meetings of Christian bishops and Sikhs on the other hand, have been held separately because of the prejudices of atheists. However, when the dialogue succeeds the meetings will certainly be held jointly. The question is whether this is the realisation of Europe’s Christian identity.
Reducing Christianity to a religious sect, tolerated in private life and controlled in the social dimension, is the easily recognisable programme of the new ‘social liberation.’ And this matter is not only of European dimension.
A wave of the new revolution has started on the continent where the countries have respected the rights of the family and the life of the weakest so far. In Brazil the government is preparing a bill to annul the legal protection of the unborn. In Argentina the Parliament, supported by the Peronist leaders (the local radical centre-wing party that described themselves as followers of Justicialism), introduced the institution of ‘homosexual marriages.’
The Polish politics concerning human rights is needed more and more – if our children are to live in a normal world. Unfortunately, the public opinion of our country is being occupied with something quite different these days.
