Poland slaps fine on singer for bashing Bible

Published: 01.17.12, 01:35 / Israel News

A Polish court slapped a fine on a popular singer who bad-mouthed the Bible, the latest episode in which authorities grapple with religious defamation in a traditionally Catholic country that is growing increasingly secular.

Dorota Rabczewska, a singer who uses the stage name Doda, said in a 2009 interview that she doubted the Bible "because it's hard to believe in something that was written by someone drunk on wine and smoking some herbs." A Warsaw court ordered her Monday to pay a fine of 5,000 zlotys ($1,450) for offending religious feelings. (AP)
