Polish deputies sing "The Virgin" in protest against LGBT people
The people's deputies believe that the revision of the amendments to the law on the elimination of gender and LGBT ideology is idolatry.
Deputies of the City Duma of the Polish city of Stary Sacz protested against the legislative amendment on tolerance of LGBT ideology, singing the ancient West Russian and Polish song "Virgin Mary", Eadaily.com reports.
The day before, City Council Chairman Andrzej Stawarski announced to deputies that he had received a letter from the prosecutor's office regarding the decision to eliminate gender and LGBT ideology adopted two years earlier. Stawarski asked whether the deputies had changed their minds.
In response to his question, MP Robert Reims of Law and Justice said he was surprised that the issue needed to be discussed.
In turn, Lidiya Shevchik from the same party said, “I appeal to the conscience of all deputies. As far as I know, we are all Catholics and we go to church. It would be idolatry if we accepted at this stage the rejection of the resolution we voted on at the time."
After these words, Shevchik sang the ancient religious song of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and the Kingdom of Poland "The Virgin" (Polish: Bogurodzica – Ed.) and stood up. Her example was followed by other members of the same party.
She sang the first few lines of the song, which should not be confused with the "Hail Mary!" chant: "Bogurodzica, dziewica, Bogiem sławiena Maryja! U twego syna, Gospodzina, matko zwolena Maryja! Zyszczy nam, spuści nam. Kirielejson.”
"The Virgin" is the oldest religious song of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and the Kingdom of Poland, recorded in writing, and the oldest surviving poetic West Russian and Polish text, although the language of the song is not Polish.
Earlier, the UOJ wrote that Poland had called for a fight against LGBT ideology, which threatens civilization.
