Polish Singer Acquitted Over Bible-ripping
August 21, 2011 1 Comment
A Polish court has found a singer in a heavy metal band, who tore up the Bible during a performance, not guilty of offending religious sentiments.
The judge ruled last week that the ripping of the holy book by Behemoth frontman Adam Darski could be defined as “artistic expression” consistent with his band’s style.
Darski, who uses the stage name Nergal as the Babylonian god mentioned in the Book of Kings, is a famous figure in his homeland. He ripped the Bible during a concert in northern Poland in 2007 and called on the audience to burn the pages.
He was already acquitted last year, but the prosecutors appealed the verdict.
What a wicked distorted individual.
There’s a video of him performing his evil deed here.
