mosques are more useful than giant status of people you worship. & they are called muslims and not "extremists".

Will be finished next month! Fantastic work but a very small and very dedicated team, even the crane they found was out of a German junkyark, so

You can pray in front of the statue as well as in the mosque. So what is the problem? Why mosque is better ? because it is islamic building?
or you can construct there some bombs (in hiding) joke.

The best thing is this monument was designed without ANY knowledge of building, designing, etc, NOONE knows how much does the constructrion weigh, it was reported to local authorities as "small architecture" so there's no need for architect's and urbanist's approval and moreover it is even unstable. Nobody is brave enough to try to finish this monument, it can collapse. (And the crown of the Jesus is designed for observation platform just like in Statue of Liberty)

I hope someday Poles will be liberal, more open-minded and not so stupidly megalomaniac...

I hope someday some Poles stop whining about their 'bad' countrymen...
You better concentrate on EURO 2012 stadiums or some other good projects.

Unfortunately bad projects tell about us more than good ones.

AFAIK Jesus taught people that religion is not about big monuments and rich temples of stone

a waste of time and energy, unfortunately a minority of mostly older more backward in some cases Poles feel comforted by such things that Christ himself would be appalled by.

Funny, people will donate money to giant statues but are appalled that their local taxes go up to fund hospitals or road improvements.

It's made from donations and it brings those people (and others) happiness, it has a net positive economic effect for the local community, and at the end of the day something new is being created (any time you 'think big' you get knocked down by other people), anyway, they actually saw their dream through to completion so that's more than can be said for others.
