I don't know about your prying but if you don't pray to Michnik and GW isn't your bible then your comparison fails.
The only thing that fails here is your logic.
Shouldn't than even attempt to rule in this case as it is clearly not about facts. It is about an opinion and political debate.
The ruling itself is political and has nothing to do with facts.
Freedom does not mean anarchy.
Freedom of speech like every other freedom has its limits. Everyone in Poland is entitled to exercise their freedom, as long as they do not undermine the rights and freedoms of others.Freedom of speech does not mean the freedom to purposefuly lie and offend anyone, to violate someone's dignity. One can not use the freedom of speech law, when he is lying, slandering, saying something that violates someone's personal rights.
The dignity of every human is also protected by Polish law. Therefore I praise the court for ruling against Rymkiewicz and for having the courage to speak the obvious (at least obvious for some on PF).
What is nut is judges whose ruling is really beyond any limits of decency!
In times of tyranny and injustice, when law oppresses the people,it is time to make things right. Down with tyranny.
what I find revolting is the court ruling and people who were judging in this case. What are their names?
Your comments show that state and law doesn't mean much to you, unless they are on your side. You are demonstarting complete contempt for the law, the principles and values that are foundations of Poland. This posts are written by a supporter of PiS, a party of declared state worshippers. I don't think that Poland needs such love ;/
You mean that post taken out of context ?
No it wasn't taken out of context. If anybody is bored enough to read all your posts on that thread then here you can do it:
As I said, if the law is not on your side, then it is a bad law, isn't Ironside?
JonnyM: A false comparison. She was giving her opinion on a book.
that is not a book by many is regarded as the book.
Should I then make that comparison more valid by insulting his mother or parents?
Maybe lifestyle or something he holds dear?
The point is nobody should be able to insult people or their beliefs without consequences. Sadly some people seems to think that is doesn't apply to the religion.
Not quite, if someone chooses to make rude and unharnessed remarks about something that many people deem holly that is clearly offensive, no buts about that !
If somebody does it on purpose then there is no doubt in my mind that he/she should be fined.
It has nothing to do with criticizing religion and everything with respect where there is no respect there is nothing.
As long as you are not abusing or insulting somebody's beliefs - you should have a right to express your opinions in a non insulting way.
It is amusing that you decided to defend Rymkiewicz The Hypocrite. I guess you founded common ground....
Rymkiewicz asked by Piotr Rogowski (Agora attorney) "Can you judge people by the views of parents?", Rymkiewicz said that "you can draw conclusions as to their education". When asked by a lawyer, whether in the Stalinist years he was in the Union of Polish Youth (Związek Młodzieży Polskiej), Rymkiewicz confirmed. "The point is not what I did at age 15" - he added. "And why do you think that the essence of the case are the views of parents, editors of "GW"? - asked Rogowski.
"Michnik criticized Luxemburg for underestimating the independence aspirations of Poles" - said Rogowski. "I do not read Michnik" - Rymkiewicz said. When asked by a lawyer, Rymkiewicz admitted that his parents were in the Communist Party.
