Romanian Christians Want Lady Gaga Concert Banned

Orthodox and nationalist groups in Romania are calling for a ban on Lady Gaga’s concert in Bucharest, alleging that some of her songs are against “Christian morals” and encourage homosexuality.
Around 3,500 people have signed a petition urging the authorities not to allow the presence of the American pop star in Romania.
“We are a Christian people. Blasphemy and the negation of the God are sins, which cannot be forgiven. Lady Gaga is a malign person and her presence in Romania should be forbidden,” the petition says.

Madonna's First Venue in St. Petersburg to be Purified with Holy Water

Edit: One thing Poles and Russians can agree upon is their contempt for decadent pop stars.  Cut from interfax is the following:

St. Petersburg, August 9, Interfax - Activists from the Trade Union of Russian Citizens are planning to continue a series of lone protests against Madonna's concert in St. Petersburg, the public movement told Interfax.

"At first we were planning to hold protests outside the Sports and Concert Complex (where her performance will take place), but we dropped this idea because representatives from the LGBT movement will be protesting there. We have decided to go to Dvortsovaya Square tonight," the source said.

It was here that Madonna gave her first performance in St. Petersburg a few years ago, he said. "The time has come to consecrate this place. We have invited a priest to spray holy water onto Dvortsovaya Square," the source said.

The Trade Union of Russian Citizens believes that Madonna has turned its ideas into political demonstrations, having become "an ideological weapon of the West," the source said. "We are against the genocide of morality and ethics. Foreigners have no right to dictate the rules of life to us," the spokesman said.

Madonna is performing in St. Petersburg on Thursday. The show is due to begin on the stage of the Petersburgsky Sports and Concert Complex at 8 p.m. Moscow time. Madonna will sing songs from her new album M.D.N.A. as part of her world tour.

During her performance in Moscow on August 7, Madonna spoke in support of the arrested members of thePussy Riot punk band. Also, the singer wrote on her Facebook page that during her performance in St. Petersburg she will touch upon the problem of gay rights violations in the city, which banned "propaganda" promoting homosexuality and pedophilia to minors.
