WARSAW (ChurchMilitant.com) – Footage of a young Polish Catholic priest addressing a crowd of tens of thousands protesting Islam and liberalism is going viral.
The speech occurred at a march in honor of Poland’s November 11 National Independence Day, which marks the anniversary of the country’s restoration of sovereignty in 1918.
The young priest, Fr. Jacek Miedlar, spoke to a crowd of an estimated 50,000 protesters, defending Poland’s autonomy and Catholic heritage against the rising threat of Islam, in response to European Union (EU) demands for the country to “absorb” Muslim refugees currently flooding Germany.
“The leftist and Islamic aggression is turned against Christianity and our nation,” the priest said to a crowd filled with Polish flags. “We have the right to be afraid of that. We are entitled to fear for the fall of the Christian heritage of our nation.”
