Singer Faces Two Years in Prison For Tearing Up Bible and Insulting Catholic Church

We have been following the crackdown on free speech in the West and particularly the alarming trend toward Western blasphemy prosecution, here. Now, in Poland, one of the lead signers and guitarists in the heavy metal band Behemoth has been criminally charged with insulting Roman Catholics for tearing up a Bible on stage and calling the Catholic Church “the most murderous cult on the
planet.” For a video, see below.


The case itself is a bit confusing. Ryszard Nowak, head of the All-Polish Committee for Defense Against Sects sued Behemouth for promoting Satanism, but the trial appears focused on insulting Catholics. It is a crime to insult someone’s religion — something that is becoming a common basis in the West for punishing critics of religion. The Obama Administration recently gave tacit approval to such attacks on free speech as Western leaders attack secularists as a threat to Western Civilization, here.

The band has been previously charged with such offenses against religion and the singer in this case has pleaded not guilty — citing artistic freedom.

If found guilty, Darski faces up to 2 years in prison.

  1. I can not resist posting this infamous 1992 SNL performance of Sinead O’Connor singing Bob Marley’s song “War” (substituting “child abuse” for “racism”) for those not in the know, the picture she holds and rips at the end is of the Pope.

  2. Any “church” that has protected pedophile priests for YEARS is worse than a cult.

    They are CRIMINALS, and should be prosecuted as such!

  3. What a ridiculous waste of time and money. Not just ridiculous, but dangerous, and alarmingly so. This isn’t even stifling sedition against the state, but against illogical, institutionalised beliefs. This new century seems to be adopting the motto ‘one step forward, two steps back’.
