More proof that teh terrists hate our freedom

This news has me quite torn. On the one hand, religious censorship is bad, on the other hand he was trying to stop a Madonna concert...

Priest admits Madonna bomb hoax

A 63-year-old Dutch priest has confessed to making a hoax bomb threat in an attempt to stop a concert by US pop star Madonna, prosecutors say.

Her mock re-enactment of the crucifixion in one of the scenes offended some Christians during earlier shows in Italy and Germany.

But the concerts in Amsterdam went ahead as planned on Sunday and Monday.

A city official said the priest was arrested soon after making the call because he used his home phone.

Emergency services quickly traced the number.

The official, prosecutor's office spokesman Robert Meulenbroek, said that as this was probably the priest's first such offence, he was likely to receive a light sentence.

He has been released from custody pending a verdict.

"We take bomb threats seriously, but in this case it was clear very quickly that it was not real," Mr Meulenbroek told the Associated Press news agency.

Madonna has since gone on to do two concerts in Prague, and will play her final European date in Moscow next week.

Russian Orthodox Christians have also expressed concerns about the use of religious imagery in her show.

Hehehe...

As much as this is a laudable goal; the end doesn't justify the means, and two wrongs don't make a right... :wink:

PS: I'm surprised people still get upset about her. Her whole anti-Catholic thing is sooo 1980s...

What's this got to do with terrorists hating our freedom?

I did find it strange that a priest who calls in a bomb threat to a madona concert gets released, while if you or I called in a threat to blow up a church service, we'd still be sitting in jail.
