What's wrong with just leaving it where it is?
Because the President of Poland is supposed to be (at least, in the tradition of Jaruzelski and Kwasniewski) an impartial person who is above politics. The Presidential Palace is not a place for political rallies - and let's be realistic, they're already using it as such. I'm not surprised Komorowski wants nothing to do with the palace - who wants to live somewhere when you're going to have crazed morons outside chanting political slogans?
My view? Let the cross stay, but ban politics from it. They'll soon get bored and start their hero worship elsewhere.
Having said this, all this worship is very much false idol behaviour. Perish the thought that these people are actually anti-Christians though.
but who gave the ok?
The cardinal who had responsibility for Wawel. Same guy who was JPII's right hand man, I think? And incidentally, the same guy who may very well have hid the true extent of the abuse problem from JPII too.
How long can a national mourning continue - for a president who was besides grossly incompetent and partial also unpopular ?
It'll last as long as Jaroslaw attempts to win power, unfortunately. But remember, the people taking part in this hysteria have one thing in common - a lack of education or intelligence.
