Spain‘s government is being taken to court over a minister’s decision to give the country’s top policing award to a statue of the Virgin Mary.

The country’s interior minister, Jorge Fernández Díaz, singled out an icon of the Virgin Mary, in Málaga, to receive the gold medal of police merit – which is normally reserved for police who have died in terrorist attacks.

Announcing the award in February, Díaz lauded the Virgin and her congregation for “maintaining a close collaboration with police, particularly during the acts celebrated in Holy Week, and for sharing police values such as dedication, caring, solidarity and sacrifice”.

Watch out! That mother is holding a bermb!

  1. The winner of next year’s award will be a pet rock (sorry if some of you don’t remember what a pet rock is). Come to think of it, a statue is something like a pet rock.
