Poland: Logo of a homophobic far-right party approved.

In late October 2011, the Party NOP (Narodowe Odrodzenie Polski) or "Party for the rebirth of Poland," far-right party has managed to polish accept its logo somewhat indecent shaped road sign, a feature bar drawing evoking a sexual act between two men, has been approved by the Polish courts. The slogan of the party is just as daring "Zaka Pedalowani" that can be translated as "Tartouzerie prohibited."
         The Polish party does not hide his homophobia when throughout Europe, parliaments vying to vote for sanctions against abuses against homosexuals.
         Some members of the Polish opposition, spoke out against the party and believe that the NOP symbols refer directly to the tradition of intolerance fascist, neo-Nazi and xenophobic "insists Robert Biedron, one of the few openly gay members of the Parlement and founding of the NGO "campaign against homophobia."
         Obviously gay associations including the Polish LGBT organizations have strongly condemned the decision of the Polish courts.
         Poland, homeland of the late Pope John Paul II, a member of the European Union it not infringe the European Convention on Human Rights condemning discrimination based on sex?
         Two out of three Poles against manifestations for LGBT rights, 80% are opposed to gay marriage and 90% adoption by same-sex couples.
         The official organ of the NOP is "Szczerbiec (name of the sword of the coronation of King of Poland)". Founded November 10, 1981 by Adam Gmurczyk, it has been approved as a political party in 1992 and between 800 and 1,500 militants are mostly skinheads.
         During the 2005 parliamentary elections, it received 7,000 votes (0.06%). The founder of the NOP defines democracy "as the power of a handful of populist or special interest groups, who think only their own welfare, not the good of the people."
         The NOP relatively close ties with Britain and the German neo-Nazi party NPD.
