(Rock News Desk) Behemoth frontman Nergal has been found innocent of charges relating to tearing a Bible on stage in his native Poland.

The nation has strict laws against offending religious feelings and Nergal, real name Adam Darski, was charged following a concert in Gdynia in 2007 after he called the Catholic Church "the most murderous cult on the planet" then referred to the Bible as "a book of lies" before tearing pages out of a copy.

Dismissing the charges, judge Krzysztof Wiechowski described the musician's actions as "a form of art", and said the law was not intended to limit artistic expression or the right to criticise religions. more on this story
