Poland activists acquitted over LGBT Virgin Mary

Three Polish women have been found not guilty of offending religious feelings over posters depicting the Virgin Mary with a rainbow halo.

The activists displayed the images in 2019 in response to an Easter display describing "gender" and "LGBT" as sins.

The women would have faced up to two years in prison if found guilty in the case.
...
But the charges were supported by some politicians, with the country's then-Interior Minister Joachim Brudzinski responding that "all that nonsense about freedom and 'tolerance' does not give ANYONE the right to insult the feelings of the faithful."

Good to see the court decided this was not a crime, but worrying that Polish politicians use the law for populism.
