A Polish bishop has called on the public to protest the addition of “Satanic” Behemoth frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski to Poland’s TV lineup. Nergy’s on the Polish version of the hit American singing competition “The Voice,” called, ironically, “The Voice Of Poland.”
This dude Bishop Wieslaw Mering, head of the diocese of Wlocawek in northern Poland, has aimed his sights TVP for hiring Nergal, who was recently found innocent of offending religious feelings.
That charge stemmed from a September 2007 incident, during which Nergy dubbed the Catholic Church “the most murderous cult on the planet” and tore up a Bible, which he called “a book of lies.”
Blabbermouth found some dude to translate the bishop’s statement: “A blasphemer, Satanist and lover of evil incarnate will have free use of the public television screen to spread his poisonous teachings! We cannot pretend that nothing is happening, even if they should call us reactionary, intolerant Catholics or some sort of ‘berets!’ No! As citizens we have the right to voice our opinions.”
He then calls on people young and old to protest TVP and the show; sign petitions calling for Nergal to be bounced; pray; and spread the word.
“We cannot be silent, when the belief of those faithful to Christianity is allowed to be challenged in this drastic way,” the statement says. “Very recently, Nergal was ‘absolved’ in public court for humiliating the Holy Scriptures saying it is ‘Shit you can plow into the ground and bury!’ He also called the church ‘a criminal sect.’ We cannot be silent, neither from fear, nor wanting to please the whims of God’s personal enemy, nor from any motives of political correctness or indifference.”
