This is an internal affair in Russia and Madonna should mind her own business.

Should human rights, such as freedom of speech, not exist worldwide?

In accordance with my usual policy, I didn't read any further than your words "human rights".

Entry into Russia isn't a human right.  Madonna can stay home.  After all, besides telling the Russians what to do, she couldn't give a sh@t about them.  Or is she in the market for another kid?

I hate to break it to you, but Madonna never went away. In fact, her concerts make more money than just about anyone. Here's a snippet from wiki about her:

"The Drowned World Tour was followed by the 2004 Re-Invention World Tour. Madonna was inspired to create the tour after taking part in an art installation called X-STaTIC PRo=CeSS, directed by photographer Steven Klein. Billboard awarded Madonna the "Backstage Pass Award" in recognition of having the top-grossing tour of the year, with ticket sales of nearly US $125 million. Madonna's next two tours broke world records, with the 2006 Confessions Tour grossing over US $194.7 million, becoming the highest-grossing tour ever for a female artist at that time. This feat was surpassed in 2008 with the Sticky & Sweet Tour, which went on to become the highest-grossing tour ever by a solo artist, and the second highest-grossing tour of all time, with approximately US $408 million in ticket sales"

He didn't condone the sin but stood up for the person and showed them love.

He then said "Go and sin no more."

Hardly the case here!

Hardly the case here!

Jesus had every right to tell another to go and sin no more as he was perfect -- we are not. We need to be concerned with our own sin in our own lives and keep our noses out of other people's situations unless they have directly asked us for our input. We need to earn the right to be able to speak into a person's life.

More importantly and a point which has clearly escaped your attention, without love in the context of a relationship, our words rightly fall on deaf ears no matter how correct. How can the church possibly effect a change by supporting legislation like this? The context from which the church speaks is love, there's no love in this, no relationship, no backdrop to saying "go and sin no more", just empty words like a resounding gong.

No, I believe there is a definitive right and a definitive wrong. If that makes me a bigot, then gimme the membership card. I'll be in good company.
