On Sunday Poland goes the ballot box, and we’re in danger of getting a heavily pro-LGBT and pro-choice president, not to mention other dangers.
The incumbent pro-life pro-family president is going to be heavily contested by a liberal candidate who, as the serving mayor of our capital city, has campaigned heavily under the LGBT banner, clashed with pro-lifers and pushed heavily for the WHO’s immoral sex-ed for children. Placing third is a liberal Catholic theologian, a TV celebrity turned politician, one of those ‘personally pro-life but politically pro-choice types’, who is also anti-clerical and somewhat anti-Church in general (more so than even the actual left-wing candidates and the actual LGBT candidate).
Due to the government’s many failures and shortcomings and outright blunders, the incumbent president is quite likely to lose to the liberal mayor and even more likely to lose to the liberal theologian in Round 2 (though the mayor is the more likely runner-up between those two and round 2 will only feature 2 leading candidates).
The liberal candidate is likely to win largely because he looks younger, is handsomer and better at foreign languages. Also perceived as younger and more educated, though they’re exactly on par with the current president. And this will offset his lying about his sympathies and voting habits, publishing his manifesto two days before the elections (with individual points copied from all other major candidates, all of whom have called him out), as well as many other things. Unfortunately, this is the shallow way Polish vote sways, comparable to how US elections tend to be won by the taller candidate. In Poland, an air of education, foreign languages, handsome face and high social status tend to do the same job.
We need your prayers.
