European lawmakers on Tuesday voted strongly in favour of a non-binding resolution insisting that same-sex marriages and registered partnerships should be valid throughout the European Union, while same-sex spouses and partners should enjoy the same status as heterosexual couples, Poland's PAP news agency reported.
In an interview with the state-run TVP Info news station, Brudziński dismissed the resolution as "a piece of gibberish that has no relation to the treaties which are binding in the EU."
The resolution called on the European Commission, the EU's executive arm, to consider sanctions against Warsaw and Budapest for "breaching European values" and "principles of non-discrimination against LGBTQ+ people."
Among evidence, the MEPs cited "hostile rhetoric from elected politicians" and the proclamation of "LGBTI-free zones" by some of Poland's local governments.
A total of 387 lawmakers voted in favour of the resolution, while 161 were against.
Brudziński, a MEP for Poland's governing conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party, on Wednesday called the debate "another instance of lefty noise" directed against Poland, Hungary and Slovenia.
Brudziński argued that EU lawmakers sought to punish Hungary "for stating the obvious in their laws, namely that parents consist of a man and a woman."
"Obviously we are not underestimating such moves, but they are absurd in terms of logic, common sense, truth and crucially the EU treaties, which should govern our work here in Strasbourg and Brussels," he told TVP Info.
