Poland to Fire Teachers Who "Promote" Homosexuality
A Deputy Education Minister says Poland will fire teachers thought to be promoting "homosexual culture" by way of a new law expected to be passed within a month.
Said Miroslaw Orzechowski: "We will finish a law which will introduce a ban on promoting homosexuality in schools within a month. A person who promotes this and other deviations will be punished. It will by no means harm the rights of homosexuals, hit by this affliction."
What penalty teachers will face has not yet been made clear.
Poland's President Lech Kaczynski and Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the "terrible twins" as they are known to many, have a long anti-gay history despite the fact that Jaroslaw may apparently be gay. Lech Kaczynski was condemned by rights groups in February for his latest statement, that gays would destroy the human race.
