You go girl!

BERLIN, Germany (AP) — Prosecutors plan to keep an eye on Madonna’s weekend concert in Duesseldorf to see if the pop diva repeats the mock crucifixion scene that has drawn fire from religious leaders. Johannes Mocken, a spokesman for prosecutors in Duesseldorf, said Tuesday that a repeat of that scene during Sunday’s concert could be construed as insulting religious beliefs. (ed.: …which is apparently against the law in Germany!)

— I don’t know whether to be relieved or panicked to discover that America doesn’t have a monopoly on religious nut cases influencing government. If offending all the right people is a reliable measure of one’s worth (and I suspect it is), then Madonna continues as the gold standard.
