Last weekend, editor Pawe Lisicki spoke during the 14th International Conference “Catholics and Religious Freedom” at the Academy of Social and Media Culture in Toruń.
– Several months ago, the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said in her speech that her goal is to bring about a radical moral revolution in the countries of the European Union. Joe Biden, President of the United States, announced a similar plan to rebuild society. The journalist noted that in the United States, a law was passed that provides “legal protection of gender identity and sexual orientation, equating it with the protection enjoyed by persons of different races or persons with disabilities.”
Radical restriction of freedom of religion?
The editor-in-chief of De Rzeque warns that the actions of Western politicians may radically limit the freedom to convert to one’s religion. In the past few decades, many Western and liberal democracies have introduced laws that, as a consequence, must radically limit one’s freedom to convert to one’s religion. Moreover, this was not a situation in the past, but a process that is accelerating. (…) Several months ago, the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said in her speech that her goal was to bring about a radical moral revolution in the countries of the European Union. A parent in an EU country must be recognized as a parent in every EU country – said the President of the European Commission – the spokesperson indicated.
Bowie Lisicki noted that a similar narrative accompanies American politicians. President Joe Biden announces a similar plan to rebuild society. The US Congress has passed a seemingly harmless bill – the Infrastructure Bill. Formally and theoretically, this law serves the development of the economy. But in practice, $1.2 trillion would be spent on making a real coup. From an ideological point of view, the provision offering “legal protection of gender identity and sexual orientation, while equating it with the protection enjoyed by persons of different races or persons with disabilities” is particularly important. This is the most Bolshevik paragraph in this law – the journalist’s assessment.
No person in the United States on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, or disability shall be excluded from participation, nor shall they be denied benefits, nor shall they be discriminated against under any program or activity conducted Its financing in part or in full from the funds recognized under this Act ($ 1.2 trillion) – Lisicki added.
A new gender ethic
According to the journalist, it is extremely dangerous to push for a law that de facto distorts reality. – The introduction of this provision means potential harassment of schools, universities, sports clubs and public benefit organizations. It also means attacking all kinds of societies, businesses, charities, and even hospitals, whose owners or founders wish to be true to their conscience and the principles of Christianity. The speaker stressed that they will have to face the choice between a “new gender ethic” and apply for public money.
