The Christian New Testament, Luke 11:27-28, has the following story of popular adulation mitigated by Jesus himself:
And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him: Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. But Jesus said: Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.
Guess what: the very same slogan was used in a recent political demonstration in support of the current president of Poland, Mr Andrzej Duda:
|Polish source article|
|Polish Messiah in statu nascendi|
I kid you not: it is a public apotheosis of the current living Polish president.
The benediction of Duda's mother's paps aside, as a masculinist I must decry the omission of blessing for the loins that begot him:
|"Blessed be the penis that conceived you"|
What comes next, though? Accusations of sacrilege and auto-da-fé executions of those that dare oppose Mr Duda's divine political mission? Have the times of new inquisition really arrived?
