Behemoth Frontman Found Innocent of Bible Charge
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.
