VISION OF CHRISTIAN MORALITY IN THE PUBLICATIONS OF „GAZETA WYBORCZA” DURING THE GREAT JUBILEE OF THE YEAR 2000
Languages of publication
„Gazeta Wyborcza” is considered to be one of the most influential and opinion-generating Polish newspapers. Since its inception, it regularly publish-es articles on topics closely related to the Church. During the Jubilee of the Year 2000 „Gazeta Wyborcza” published 677 texts on the Church, its pastoral leaders and faithful, texts broaching issues of ethics and Christian morality. The vision of Christian morality created by „Gazeta Wyborcza” is incompatible with the interpretation of the Magisterium of the Church. The journalists take up a fight with the Church – a teacher of Christian ethical principles, especially through the use of deliberate demoralization. According to the columnists, the most respected value should be tolerance. However, this „tolerance” is – in the opinion of the journalʼs editors – an abandonment of the defence of their professed principles, as well as not giving their view point concerning good and evil. In „Gazeta Wyborcza” we find praise for a culture that believes that in vitro fertilization, abortion and euthanasia are a sign of progress and a triumph of freedom. In the Year 2000, the journalists of „Gazeta Wyborcza” devoted many publications to propagating homosexual attitudes.
