Dutch Christians file complaint against Madonna

Amsterdam, Holland - The youth chapter of the protestant Dutch party SGP have filed a legal complaint against the singer Madonna for blasphemy and insulting a religious group.

The group objected to a mock crucifixion scene featured in Madonna's European tour after the US pop star gave two sell-out concerts in Amsterdam this month.

Chairman Jan Kloosterman told the ANP news agency that the complaint was supported by 50 different organisations.

Madonna's "Confessions" tour has also drawn protests from religious leaders in Moscow, where she is due to play on Tuesday, and from the archbishop of Prague.

Last Friday, a 63-year-old Dutch clergyman confessed to making a hoax bomb threat in an attempt to stop Madonna's concert because he objected to the crucifixion scene.
