Climate hot take
Everybody just exploded when #Poland did back out of deal to reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2050.
But noone talks about the elephant in the room:
UE will fund renewables (including burning imported wood "renewable"). But won't fund Atomic power, which has best carbon footprint with the exception of hydro power (Poland has little hydro power potential).
Countries that have low emissions now either have nuclear, hydro or both (France, New Zealand, Norway).
Only good thing in living in Catholic run country is that shitload of days important in canonical calendar are also state holiday.
Guess who has free day tomorrow due to Corpus Christi holiday?
Warsaw Pride, alleged blasphemy
So there was a service before the Pride, it was done by "Old Catholic" denomination (this one: http://www.unitedecc.org/).
So obviously this resembled Catholic mass (this wasn't a mass but rather ecumenical service open to all religions).
Long story short when the Bishop asked: "Any priest would come forward", and pastafarian priest in collander came forward, and was helping with the ceremony.
Polish Politics, Child Sexual abuse
[Public transport] lines: 1, 2, 3 ...., 87B, 96. Due to pilgrimage in intention of hard city and region problems, will go to alternate routes from 9:10-11:10.
Poland being poland
My friend that was supposed to be doing neurodiversity lecture in some governmental organisation (she is organizing some help groups for women in autism spectrum --- which are misdiagnosed often).
Her lecture was called of, citing pressure from "up above".
Probably because she is also a lesbian.
Poland being a confessional state
Woman that was producing images like below (virgin Mary with rainbow areola) was taken into custody, questioned and searched. She was taken from her home at 6AM (literally earliest time it is legal to intrude on somebody's home).
Reason was article 196 of penalty code, this article punishes "offending religious beliefs" with up to 2 years in prison.
I was (somewhat accidentally) at solidarity manifestation today.
Polish courts apparently now require mandatory mediations before court hearing. The problem is that mediation sessions are non cheap, and the whole process starts after you already paid for the case (civil cases aren't free) and often after you paid for attorney. Which totally kills the point of having mediation (which is to avoid costs of a court proceedings). #poland being Poland I guess.
Someone just tried to stab to death president of major Polish city during a fundraising event. #poland
Catholics depression Poland
In (semi)official catholic radio I heard that:
* Depression is a moral fault;
* Is due to post-modermnism;
* Pharma won't cure it (as it is a moral fault not a medical condition);
* Psyhoterapy doesn't work (unless christian) as reason for depression is moral fault of person suffering from it.
Sometimes you are both a member of priviledged group (eg. males) and a discriminated group (eg. atheist in Poland).
When Catholics (in Poland) yell of "discrimination" against them it totally triggers me.
Catholics get their "religion" taught in shools, they get crosses everywhere, Church gets (according to some calculations, there are no "official" figures) donations from the state that amount to 1/3 of budged defficit.
Check your fucking priviledge.
Polish politics // Woman rights abuse
Right now we have very big "Black Protest" marches, as ruling party decided to enforce (already very strict) abortion restrictions in Poland.
Basically woman would be forced to birth with severe defects (even ones that will die in first day of life).
They also started using terms like: "unborn human", "unborn patient".
This is all to appease to Catholic Church (after bishops publicly urged the government to hasten this legislation)
