When a thread has a nasty title like this one, you probably know right away who started it. Someone who describes a distinguished Polish professor and politician as a
screechy-voiced post-communist witch Senyszyn
and an equality campaigner as
. Homosexuality being a topic to which Polonius3 obviously gives a huge amount of personal thought, judging by the number of threads he has made on it.
This Bohdan Wolniewicz who is a clergyman is entitled to his point of view - and he certainly isn't backwards in spouting his views on the internet - but his premise (the usual one - that they
