Polish pop singer Doda has been cleared of blasphemy charges by the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.
In 2008, the 38-year-old was charged with blasphemy after saying the writers of the Bible were "wasted from drinking wine and smoking weed."
A district court in Warsaw convicted Doda arguing her remarks were deliberately offensive.
However, Europe's top court has now recognised that while her comments "could shock or disturb some people", they are still protected under the European Convention on Human Rights and ordered Poland to pay her €10,000 in compensation.
According to the court's statement, Doda made the made the comments during an interview with news website Dziennik.
The journalist had asked her if she had any religious beliefs to what she replied she believed in a "higher power."
She continued by saying she was more persuaded by scientific findings, rather than by biblical stories that had been written by "someone wasted from drinking wine and smoking weed."
Following her comments, two people lodged complaints against her and was consequently indicted for offending religious feelings.
Doda turned to the European Court of Human Rights in 2013 after her appeals, which went up to the Polish constitutional court, were rejected.
Europe's top court in Strasbourg said the Polish court had not argued her statements amounted to hate speech or could stir up or justify violence, hatred or intolerance.
"Indeed, the domestic courts had failed to comprehensively assess the wider context of the applicant's statements, which had not meant to contribute to any serious debate on religious matters but had been made in reply to questions about her private life, in a frivolous and colourful language intended to spark her young audience's interest," the court said.
