WASHINGTON, D.C., September 6, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - 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.
The cables from the American embassy in Warsaw, marked sensitive but unclassified, were part of a dump of over 250,000 official government documents last week by Wikileaks.
One cable from the American embassy in Warsaw dated August 2009 pointed to the Catholic Church as central in promoting homophobia in the former Soviet-controlled country.
The Catholic Church plays a significant role in the formation and propagation of anti-gay attitudes in Polish society, especially in rural areas, states the communiqué entitled Gay rights in Poland: long road ahead.
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.
While largely ignored, the issue of the homosexual agenda has come onto the radar of more conservative Polish statesmen: officials note that some lawmakers are readying defenses against acceptance of homosexuality in schools by drafting legislation similar to a law in Lithuania that bans favorable depictions of homosexuality.
Despite cultural and political hurdles, the American embassy appeared optimistic that the gay rights movement would eventually take hold in Poland.

And the left is teaching heterophobia.
The Kenyan Kommie is still mad at the Polish Catholic church for their roll in bringing down the iron curtain. Marxists never forget.
Lies from the Obama administration? Surprise....surprise..../sarc
It really. Really seems Obama has some gender identity confusion issues.
I bet he doesn’t win as many Catholic votes in 2012 as he did in 2008.
“the Church continues to label homosexual acts as sins”
Actually that would be the Bible that does that. If Obama is re-elected look for this book of “hate speech” to be banned.
High praise, that is.
Amen to that. The guy is all over the place.
Ask Reverend Wright if he's a giver or a getter ~
For the zillionth time, its not “phobia”, fags.
It is disdain.
More precisely, in the case of the Church it is:
1) concern for the salvation of your individual souls.
2) guardianship of the fundamental unit of civilization: The monogamous, heterosexual nuclear family.
There are now five Knights of Columbus councils in Poland!
Obama was placed in Federal foster care in 1971 and placed with:
Catholic Charities Migration & Refugee Services
Point to the Obama Admin as a MAJOR SOURCE of lies.
Ahh, yes, the ‘evil’ Catholic church, vs the anointed and all must appease Islamic faith. I'm sure that there's reporters pouring over the topic right about now...
The Catholic Church is the pole that holds up the tent of all Christianity. Marxists/Communists/Progressives know that if the kick down the pole, all other Christians will easily fall as well. That’s why the Church is so vehemently attacked.
Protestants would be wise to see this & side with their Catholic brothers & sisters in Christ. Instead, they’re too busy helping the liberals fan the flames of hate against the Church.
I see The Silver Lining. God himself is going to the scumbags where they belong.
