Andrei Brave Madonna: Freedom Fighter

Madonna is off to St Petersburg, where she will challenge the law which makes it an offense to promote homosexuality among minors.
Calling herself a 'freedom fighter' the star wrote: 'I will come to St Petersburg to speak up for the gay community and to give strength and inspiration to anyone who is or feels oppressed.'
Well she is really putting everything on the line here in taking this stance. If she does go to St Petersburg, run afoul of this law and find herself convicted she could be fined a whooping 5000 roubles. That would equate to NZ$207.73 at today's exchange rate. Small change to the illustrious one I'd posit.

Those who organised a concert where the offense occurs, if it does, could be fined. For them it could be more expensive 500,000 roubles - that's roughly NZ$20,000. I suppose the organizers could deduct this from her performance fee, if they are clobbered.

A small price for her to pay to gain posturing rights however it pans out.

I want to see her take on Islam - to go over to Pakistan or Iran and stand up for the cause of gay rights there. Then she'd be a real freedom fighter. I want to see her put her life on the line.

Maybe she could bleat her perverted crap in Iran where they would view her as a fanatical femdon who needs a good stoning?

Mad as a march hare.

Fletch, d4J, nothing stopping either of you heading to Iran to spread your myths, is there?

Or is their god tougher than your god?
