Woman Arrested in Poland for Defacing Icon of Virgin Mary with LGBT Rainbow

Police arrested a 51-year-old woman for profaning Poland’s most revered Catholic icon, the Madonna of Cz?stochowa, by painting an LGBT rainbow halo around her head and that of the baby Jesus.

On Monday, P?ock police detained El?bieta Podle?na over the alleged offence after investigators found several dozen posters of the Virgin Mary with the rainbow-colored halo in the woman’s home. The woman was later released.

Joachim Brudzi?ski, Poland’s interior minister, said on Twitter Monday that a person had been arrested for “carrying out a profanation of the Virgin Mary of Cz?stochowa.”

“Telling stories about freedom and ‘tolerance’ doesn’t give anyone the right to offend the feelings of believers,” said Brudzi?ski, who has described the posters as “cultural barbarism.”
