Polish Court Clears Death Metal Singer On Offending Religious Feelings Charges

According to yesterday's London Guardian, a court in Poland has cleared "death metal" singer Adam Darski (known as Nergal) of charges of offending religious feeling. In a 2007 concert in Poland, Darski tore up a Bible, threw the pages to the audience and asked them to burn them.  He also called the Bible a deceitful book and the Church a criminal sect.  The judge concluded that Darski's actions were "a form of art" consistent with the style of his band.
