Russian Church Condemns Madonna

LATEST: The Russian Orthodox Church has lambasted MADONNA's controversial 'crucifixion' stunt, urging Christians to boycott her upcoming Moscow show. The establishment is the latest in a long line of religious groups to slam the Confessions tour stunt, which sees the singer descend to the stage on a diamante-studded cross, while wearing a crown of thorns. Her Rome performance last night (06AUG06) has even prompted some Catholic leaders to call for her ex-communication. Now the Russian Church is adding its disapproval ahead of her 11 September (06) show. Spokesman FATHER VSEVOLOD CHAPLIN says, "This is not the first year that this lady has been mixing songs about human passion with Christian symbols - crosses, statues of the virgin, beads, and now it's self-crucifixion. "This means the singer needs spiritual assistance."
