Poland: Hey, it’s Christmas! Let’s hate women!

January 1, 2013

The Polish [Catholic] bishops criticized a government decision to sign an international convention combating violence against women.

“It’s a pity neither the church’s voice nor the appeals of many other organizations were taken into account,” said Auxiliary Bishop Wojciech Polak of Gniezno, secretary-general of the Polish bishops’ conference.

“Though devoted to the important problem of violence against women, this convention is built on ideological, untruthful assumptions which cannot be accepted in any way,” he said. “This is why the church is forced to protest.”

The ‘assumptions’ being, of course, that people have the right to determine what happens to and in their own bodies.
