Madonna Sued for Supporting Gays

Madonna is being sued (yay!) in Russia (awesome!) for supporting gays (oh… well then). Russian activists have sued Madonna for millions after a concert in St. Petersburg where she did the most offensive thing ever. Support gay rights.

In St. Petersburg, a law passed in February made it illegal to promote homosexuality to minors and the guy who wrote the law says children as young as 12 were at Madonna’s August 9 concert.

What were they exposed to? The performance featured Madonna “stomping on an Orthodox cross and asking fans to raise their hands to show the pink armbands in support of gays and lesbians that were distributed among the audience.”

She’s being sued for 333 million rubles, or in non-made up currency, $10.5 million.

Responding to criticism that the plaintiffs were stuck in the Middle Ages, the lawyer said they were using civilized, modern methods to defend their rights. “No one is burning anyone at the stake or carrying out an Inquisition,” Pochuyev was quoted by RIA Novosti as saying. “Modern civilization requires tolerance and respect for different values.”

That last line right there makes me assume Russia doesn’t produce the brightest of homophobes. “Why won’t you tolerate and respect our rights to hate the queers?!,” said activists who make no sense whatsoever.
