Drunks wrote Bible, claims Polish pop star

London: The Bible was written by drunks and people with a fondness for "herbal cigarettes" – that’s the claim of one of Poland`s most famous and controversial pop stars.

And courtesy the remarks, Dorota Rabczewska, famed for an unabashed attitude when it comes to flaunting her flesh, has been charged by Warsaw prosecutors, reports The Telegraph.

Rabczewska made the comments in a television interview a year ago.

Popularly known as Doda, the singer, 26, ruffled conservative sentiment in Catholic Poland after 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."

Following the claims furious Catholic groups lodged complaints with the prosecutor`s office.

"It is clear that Doda thinks that the Bible was written by drunkards and junkies," said 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 Doda faces a two-year jail sentence or a hefty fine under Polish blasphemy laws.
