Pop star Madonna has defied a Russian law that forbids public endorsements of homosexuality.

Speaking to thousands at her St. Petersburg concert on August 9, Madonna demanded tolerance for gays and lesbians.

With the words "No fear" written on her back, she spoke about the dangers of societies that fail to treat their own people with "dignity, with respect, and with love."

Earlier, the U.S. Consulate in St. Petersburg warned about threats of "physical violence against spectators and performers" after Madonna spoke out in support of Russia's jailed feminist punk rock band Pussy Riot at her Moscow concert on August 7.

Russian Orthodox Christians protested on the streets outside the St. Petersburg show, chanting antigay slogans.

Politicians and archconservatives say they will evaluate video of Madonna's concert to see if she violated the law.

Well well well,she would have made more impact if she dropped her pants,but that`s just a matter of time with the Mad donna trailing miserably behind Lady Gaga.Otherwise the Cicolina Ciccone vamp-or the Esther Kabballah schiksa is the most vivid example of today`s western moral relativism-a lgbt `icon who will strip naked,masturbate on stage doing every dirty trick in the book for more money fame and whatever takes her to her ,or rather its holy ego trip to the fiery furnace.Come on luv and do what mr.Rogozin told you to do,if you have any guts and Vade retrum!!!

The Western value is liberty and therefore tolerance.
Russia has gone from enforced atheism to enforced religious fundamentalism...now that is being relativist and having no morals.

No, the Western value is license to do whatever the hell you want, and therefore the right to force others to deal with it.

And come on, if Russia would enforce religious fundamentalism in its society, it wouldn't be the haven of corruption and human decadence it is today.

Madonna is over, she is old, shabby and desperate for attention. Her wrinkled ass can only attact necrophilics.
