Polish Supreme Court Rules Against Behemoth’s Nergal Over Bible Tearing

After being cleared of blasphemy charges in Poland last year stemming from an on-stage Bible ripping incident, apparently Behemoth front man Nergal is now facing legal issues again due to a recent decision by the Polish supreme court.

The Guardian is reporting the supreme court has now ruled against Nergal, who may potentially spend up to two years in jail for tearing up a Bible. Excerpts from the report follow:

Poland’s supreme court has issued a landmark judgment against a heavy metal musician who tore up a Bible at a gig in 2007. Although the judges conceded that Adam Darski, AKA Nergal, did not intend to offend his audience, they ruled that he could still have “offended religious feelings,” violating Polish law. If found guilty, the singer could face up to two years in prison.

After being cleared by judges in 2010 and 2011, the singer/guitarist is again on trial. Officials in Gdansk asked the supreme court how Darski could be “offending religious feelings” if most of Behemoth’s fans expected theatrical sacrilege?

“One should respect the court’s verdict,” Darski told journalists. But the Catholic church is also “immature,” he said, “trying to gag people … [and] freedom of speech.” Speaking to Reuters, Darski’s lawyer said they would continue to oppose the charges: “We are still arguing that we were dealing with art, which allows more critical and radical statements,” Jacek Potulski explained.

Nergal has now released a new autobiography titled “Sacrum Profanum,” which details his battle with leukemia. The latest trailer for the release is available right here.

Behemoth Frontman Nergal Found Innocent Of Blasphemy Charges In Poland

According to The Associated Press, Behemoth frontman Adam “Negal” Darski was found innocent today in a Polish court, after being on trial for ripping pages out of a Bible and labelling it, “a deceitful book” at a concert in 2007. He was being charged for the crime of insulting religious feelings, an offense which can carry a sentence of two years imprisonment in the predominantly Catholic country of Poland. Darski was cleared of the charges when he explained that the show where the tearing took place was a closed event in which only those who had purchased tickets attended and knew what to expect, a statement held up when questioned audience members stated that they were not offended by Darski’s actions or comments.
