Polish Catholics Not Crazy about New Madonna

Muslims, it seems, are not the only folks unhappy with news media playing with religious icons. In Poland, the Catholic church is up in arms about a pop culture magazine Machina superimposing the image of Madonna, the singer, over Madonna, the mother of Jesus. This is especially irritating to some Poles because the image used is the Black Madonna, Poland's most revered religious icon.

How do I feel about this? I think it's silly. Come on, people, get a life. And even worse, looks like some Poles are desperately putting themselves in line with fanatical Muslims calling for heads of anybody even remotely responsible for the Mohammed caricatures. For God's sake...
