MikeUSA 19 Feb 2012 #1I'm an American currently attending a university in Poland. My questions are: Why are Poles so conservative? Why are Poles so religious? Why are Poles so uptight about nudity and swearing?Poland is the most religious country in the western world. According to the most recent CBOS opinion poll (published in the fall of 2008): 94% of Poles claim they "believe in god" and 49% of Poles say they "attend Church every week"Nudity and swearing is always censored on Polish TV. Sunbathing topless is taboo in Poland and still illegal. The former Polish President attempted to ban mini-skirts in 2007. Here is the article about it: alarmingnews.com/tag/poland-banonminiskirts/Poland also attempted to ban pûrnography a few years back. The majority of Poles supported Poland banning pûrn but the Polish President rejected it because he said it would create a "black market".Abortion is still banned in Poland (even if a woman is raped or incest). Gay marriage is still banned in Poland. A 2010 study published in the newspaper Rzeczpospolita revealed that Poles overwhelmingly oppose gay marriage. 79% of Poles oppose gay marriage, with only 16% in favor. Many gays have fled Poland because they fear their lives.Guns are banned in Poland. Online gambling is banned in Poland. And many Polish politicians want to raise the drinking age to 21.In America, gay marriage and marijuana is legal in several states. We have hundreds of openly gay politicians and celebrities. Most polls show that the majority of Americans support legalizing gay marriage. In fact, many experts predict that Obama will legalize gay marriage during his second presidential term.We are the largest producers of pûrn in the world (producing 90% of the world's pûrn). Our government would never ban pûrnography. We even have legal brothels in some states. My great state of Michigan is planning to legalize brothels and prostitution next year to reduce crime. youtube.com/watch?v=aGi431LjHB8I visit Florida and women sunbathe topless topless wearing thongs (South Beach and Miami Beach). The GoTopless Movement is planning to have 1 million women march topless to Washington D,C, on August 21st to encourage women sunbathing topless everywhere in USA. But in Poland these girls would be arrested or fined for public indecency.When will Poland become a liberal secular country ?
