Seventy-five percent of Poles oppose legalization of same-sex marriage and 87 percent say gay couples shouldn’t be allowed to adopt children, a GfK Polonia poll has found.
The poll is the latest example of the wide gulf on gay acceptance that separates Western Europe from the European nations that used to be part of the Communist bloc.
Same-sex marriage is legal in Europe in Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain and Sweden – and most other Western European nations have civil union laws for gay couples.
