DOROTA Rabczewska, famed for an unabashed attitude when it comes to flaunting her flesh, has been charged by Warsaw prosecutors with insulting religious feelings with comments she made in a television interview a year ago.
Better known by her stage name Doda, the 26-year-old singer, who has a string of hits to her credit, ruffled conservative feathers in Catholic Poland by explaining 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.
This prompted furious Catholic groups to lodge complaints with the prosecutor’s office.
Thundered Ryszard Nowak, chairman of the Committee for the Defence Against Sects, an organisation dedicated to protecting Christian “values”:
It is clear that Doda thinks that the Bible was written by drunkards and junkies. 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.
Dorota is the second Polish pop singer to fall foul of the law. In March we reported that Adam “Nergal” Darski, frontman for the extreme heavy metal band Behemoth, had been formally charged for destroying a copy of the Bible on stage over two years ago.
