Madonna off the hook in Holland
Madonna will not be prosecuted for “blasphemy” in Holland, much to the disappointment of the Protestant SGP party. Complaints were prompted by her crucifixion scene part of her “Confessions ON A Dancefloor” world tour.
Unfortunately, she seems to have been let off for the wrong reasons. A spokesman for the prosecutors office announced:
The pop singer Madonna will not be prosecuted for blasphemy and insulting faith.
The prosecutor’s office believes that through her show, the singer on all the evidence tried to express her frustrations about certain situations in the world, it is not a question of contempt for God.
Furthermore, Madonna did not discredit Christians as a group.
Showing “contempt for God” and “discrediting Christians” is apparently still an offence in the Netherlands.
