Abp. Tells Poles to Move Cross to Church; Says Cross "Cannot Be Held Hostage" to Dispute

Archbishop Kazimierz Nycz of Warsaw has warned Polish activists not to make a cross a symbol of political conflict, the Catholic Culture website reports today.

At an August 12, 2010 press conference, the archbishop said that a cross that was erected outside the presidential palace -- in tribute to the late President Lech Kaczynski -- should be moved to a nearby Catholic church.

The archbishop's statement put him in alliance with incoming President Bronislaw Komorowski, who incurred the wrath of conservative activists by making the same proposal last week.

"The cross cannot be held hostage to a political dispute," said Archbishop Nycz.
