Good political news from Poland

Good political news from Poland

In good news for Poland, the new president elected on Sunday is Lech Kaczynski, mayor of Warsaw and Solidarity activist. He’s a pro-life conservative and Catholic and should help to turn back the slide in Poland on social issues that began under the former administration. The two conservative parties that won the majority of the vote will now form a government after they also won the parliamentary elections in September.

It’s a good thing to see the former Communists and Socialists pushed from power and a return of a conservative government to very Catholic Poland. Perhaps there was some intercession from a favored son now in heaven.

Update: Of course, not everyone is happy with the election. (The Guardian)

Poland could lose its EU voting rights if its newly elected president continues to oppose gay rights and seeks to introduce the death penalty, the European Commission warned yesterday.

If you’re not going to be a nice member of the ultra-lefty EU, we’re going to make you pay for it. Why exactly were so many Catholics in favor of the EU and its drive to deprive people of sovereignty and impose the new liberal orthodoxy on everyone?
