And some people were wondering why is Poland called ‘Texas East’.
When will the Poles join the United States as 51st state?
Artist Convicted of ‘Blasphemy’
Mon Jul 21, 7:24 AM ET
WARSAW (Reuters) – A Polish artist who exhibited an image of a man’s
p**** attached to a cross broke the Roman Catholic country’s law on
blasphemy, a court has ruled, according to Poland’s top-selling daily on
Gazeta Wyborcza said the conviction of artist Danuta Nieznalska in the
Baltic port of Gdansk was the first known instance in Poland of anyone
being convicted of offending religious sensibilities.
“The cross is a symbol of suffering, because on it Christ died. There is
no doubt that this cross has been desecrated,” the paper quoted as Judge
Tomasz Zielinski as saying.
In addition to a 2,000 zloty ($500) fine, the judge imposed on
Nieznalska a six-month foreign travel ban, saying her legal notoriety
would likely increase her demand in international art circles.
“I am shocked by such a severe sentence,” the paper quoted the artist as
saying after the verdict. “The court was totally biased. The judge
admitted he was no art expert.”

Just out of curiosity, what did they do with the offending artwork?

You put together the US, Texas, p**** “art”, and Poland… these have
nothing to do with each other. It sounds like you are either really
stupid or mentally disturbed.
I wonder if you can find the bathroom? Or, maybe you just use your
