Metal band sued by the church


German Black Metal Band Sued By The Catholic Church! - Nov. 7, 2003

The ridiculous battle between the Holy Inquisition and "Germany's most Satanic metal act" ANCIENT CEREMONY has taken a new twist. After they were banned from performing at the Summer Breeze festival this past summer due to the "blasphemous" nature of their concept and lyrics, ANCIENT CEREMONY's founder/vocalist Chris Anderle has received a letter from the legal representatives of the Catholic church threatening to file a lawsuit against him for expressing his disdain for the church via a series of photos posted on the band's web site. The church's lawyers are demanding that Anderle either remove the offending pictures from the site or pay a fine of 10,000 euros. The group's legal representative is currently studying the matter.

This just plain stupid in IMO

ah well, I agree it's silly

on the other hand
should they dedicate a portion of their site shitting on me and my ideas then I would probably also sue

(yes, this is a warning for some of you out there )

One group of people I cannot stand: uptight religious fanatics.

That's definitely stupid that the band's being sued.
