Polish "Death Metal" Singer Cleared of "Offending Religious Feelings" Charges

A "death metal" singer named Adam Darski, who uses the stage name Nergal (pictured), has been found not guilty of charges of "offending religious feelings" by a Polish judge. During a 2007 concert, Nergal tore up a Bible, threw the pages to the audience, and asked them to burn them. During the trial, some audience members testified that their religious feelings were not offended despite the fact that they are Christians. In finding Nergal not guilty, the presiding judge stated that the singer's actions were a form of art.
