Polish Man Found Guilty of Libeling the Pope

A court has fined a man $6,500 for libeling the Pope! AP (via Yahoo! News) reports:

Jerzy Urban, founder and publisher of the weekly magazine "NIE" — Polish for "no" — illegally insulted the pope when he printed an article making fun of John Paul's age and frailty before a visit to Poland in 2002, the court ruled.

He was found guilty of violating a law that bans publicly insulting foreign heads of state.

My girlfriend informs me that my response to you was less than Christian.

For the record, I retract my former comment, apologize for using the words "idiot" and "hell", and would like to state that I have the utmost respect for Southern Baptists.

And now, the weekend is beginning! :)

Cheers,
