Pop star claims Bible written by drunks
One of Poland's most famous and controversial pop stars faces two years in prison after suggesting that the Bible was written by drunks and people with a fondness for "herbal cigarettes".
Dorota Rabczewska, a 26 year old singer in Poland “sang” more than her hits when she said, “that she believed more in dinosaurs than the Bible because "it is hard to believe in something written by people who drank too much wine and smoked herbal cigarettes."
She has been charged in Warsaw for insulting religious sentiment in what is known as Catholic Poland. She made this comment more than a year ago during a television interview. This prompted furious Catholic groups to lodge complaints with the prosecutor's office
Ryszard Nowak, chairman of the Committee for the Defence Against Sects, an organisation dedicated to protecting Christian values. "I believe that she committed a crime and offended the religious feelings of both Christians and Jews." If found guilty the pop star faces a two-year jail sentence or a hefty fine under Polish blasphemy laws
I wasn’t even aware that Poland had blasphemy laws. It seems so strange to realize that she can spend up to two-years in jail for her “flippant attitude.” What would we do in America if someone made the identical statement?
Nothing. Sadly, I don’t think any one would notice a statement like that these days in our country. We have had worse things than that said under our so called “free speech” laws. Remember, we live in a country where putting pictures of Jesus or the flag in jars of urine is constitutional speech and art.
