Walesa Says Gay Legislators Should Sit Behind a Wall

Lech Walesa, Poland's communist-era democracy campaigner, said homosexuals shouldn't demand more rights and gay legislators should sit "behind a wall" in Parliament, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Said Welesa: "They need to know they are a minority and adjust to smaller things instead of rising to the greatest heights, taking peak time, organizing the biggest provocations designed to spoil others or pick up people from the majority."

He added that he refuses to accept public gay-rights marches that "coax my children and grandchildren."

The Independent says Walesa "has risked shattering his legacy."
