A 15-year-old boy from Płock in Poland has made a public stand against an “LGBT rights” march taking place in his home town. Jakub Baryla borrowed a large wooden cross from his parish priest and held it up in witness as participants marched past.
Baryla, a councillor in the youth arm of Płock city council, explained: “I wanted as many people as possible to see it. I wanted it to provoke reflection and discussion.” he said he was motivated by “my Catholic faith”, and that the marchers “profane the Polish flag by putting a rainbow on it.”
Baryla’s protest follows comments from the archbishop of Krakow, who said that his country is under siege from the “rainbow disease” of LGBT activism.
