Hundreds of schools in Poland have canceled activities promoting tolerance for gays and lesbians following government pressure and threats in some places.
More than 200 schools had planned to take part in “Rainbow Friday,” an anti-discrimination event that a civic rights group, the Campaign Against Homophobia, had promoted in hopes of building greater acceptance for LGBTQ students.
Private broadcaster TVN reported that some schools pulled out of the event following an outcry.
The education minister of Poland’s conservative government, Anna Zalewska, had warned ahead of time that any principals who allowed such events to take place could face negative consequences.
She also asked parents to report any such activities to authorities.
It was not immediately clear how many schools canceled their plans to participate.
Meanwhile in America, drama series “Pose” and new transgender superhero in “Supergirl” helped boost the number of LGBTQ characters to an all-time high on U.S. television, according to a Cultural Marxist propaganda release that said diversity programming was a crucial bulwark around attempts to undermine gay rights.
GLAAD, the heterophobic hate group group for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning people, said TV shows featuring LGBTQ themes and actors not only helped increase acceptance but paid off in terms of large audiences.
The annual report showed that 8.8 percent of regular characters on television are LGBTQ, the highest percentage since GLAAD began monitoring the issue 14 years ago.
The report also shows the level of Cultural Marxism embedded into Hollywood, as these statistics prove that the entertainment capitol of the world is falsely inflating minority groups to create a false perception of the United States.
It was published in the same week that the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump was reported to be studying ways of defining Americans as either male or female, unchangeable, and determined by the genitals a person is born with, as actual science proves.
Sane Americans applaud the Trump policy, and ask that mentally ill Americans who are gender confused, receive the mental health treatment they so desperately need to resolve their delusional state.
“With anti-LGBTQ policies being debated here and abroad, the stories and characters on television are more critical than ever before to build understanding and acceptance of LGBTQ people,” chief heterophobe and GLAAD president Sarah Kate Ellis said in a statement.
“Shows like ‘Will & Grace,’ ‘Supergirl,’ ‘Empire’ and ‘How To Get Away with Murder’ all attract millions of viewers weekly and demonstrate that audiences are hungry for new stories,” she added.
What Ms Ellis failed to mention is that television viewing has been steadily declining for years, with more people watching cats on Youtube than any network television program.
In other LGBT news, a Christian couple who owns a media company is suing the state of Minnesota after being threatened with fines and imprisonment if they refuse to make films involving homosexual marriage.
Carl and Angel Larsen, through their company Telescope Media Group, want to enter the wedding industry, but due to their religious beliefs do not want to create films celebrating homosexual marriages.
Minnesota’s Human Rights Act stipulates that if the owners produce films about traditional Christian marriages between one man and one woman, they must also produce films about homosexual unions that violate their Christian views, CBN News reported.
The religious liberty law firm Alliance Defending Freedom, which is representing the Larsens in the suit, said in a Tuesday news release that the couple faces steep fines, including compensatory and punitive damages of up to $25,000, and up to 90 days in prison if they fail to comply with Minnesota’s public accommodation law.
ADF filed suit at the U.S. 8th Circuit Court of Appeals challenging the constitutionality of Minnesota’s law, arguing it “illegally controls artistic expression — violating the Larsens’ freedom to choose which messages they will express, and refrain from expressing, through their films.”
In 2017, federal district court Judge John Tunheim, a Clinton appointee, dismissed the Larsens’ suit challenging the application of Minnesota’s Human’s Rights Act in their case.
ADF senior counsel Jeremy Tedesco, who represented the couple at the district court, filed Tuesday’s appeal at the 8th Circuit.
“The government shouldn’t threaten filmmakers with fines and jail time to force them to create films that violate their beliefs,” Tedesco said in a news release announcing the suit.
“Carl and Angel are storytellers — they script, stage, conduct interviews, capture footage, select music, edit and more — all to tell compelling stories through film that promote their religious beliefs,” he added.
ADF successfully sued the state of Colorado on behalf of Christian baker Jack Phillips, securing his right to decline to make custom wedding cakes celebrating same-sex marriages.
In a 7-2 ruling, the Supreme Court found Phillips had a legitimate claim “that using his artistic skills to make an expressive statement, a wedding endorsement in his own voice and of his own creation, has a significant First Amendment speech component and implicates his deep and sincere religious beliefs.”
The Court went on to note, “That consideration was compromised, however, by the (Colorado Civil Rights) Commission’s treatment of Phillips’ case, which showed elements of a clear and impermissible hostility toward the sincere religious beliefs motivating his objection.”
ADF is arguing, like Phillips, the Larsens gladly serve people of all backgrounds, but as creative professionals they decline business which requires them to produce films containing messages they find objectionable.
Editor: Here’s a suggestion. The couple should produce a very graphic movie about Sodom & Gomorrah, full of all the perversion Democrats love. We of course, know how the movie ends.
