Lech Walesa: “Madonna is a satanic temptation”

Madonna managed to attract the anger of the Catholic Christians, supported by Lech Walesa, the founder of the “Solidarity” union, who do not want a concert scheduled on a religious holiday.


Therefore, on August 15, on the day of the Assumption of Mary, the singer has scheduled a concert in Poland – considered as a genuine “bastion of European Catholicism.” “It is a Satanic Temptation,” Lech Walesa, winner of the Nobel Award for Peace in 1983 declared, according to the daily paper ‘Gandul.’ The row was caused by the date of the show. Madonna’s performance, organized on an old aerodrome in Warsaw, is due on August 15, on the day Catholic believers celebrate the Assumption of Virgin Mary. “I am a religious person, and I wish that nobody would hold events like this one on the important holidays of my religion,” Lech Walesa explained. Moreover, an ultra-Catholic Polish organization announced at the beginning of July that it would organize daily sessions of collective prayers in front of the Warsaw Mayoralty, as a protest against Madonna’s show in the Polish capital, due on August 15.


On the other hand, no more than twenty days are left before the Romanians can enjoy Madonna’s Bucharest concert.


The pop legend will perform live in Bucharest, on August 26, 2009, in the Izvor Park. The performance is part of the ‘Sticky and Sweet World Tour,’ viewed so far by over 2.3 million persons in 58 cities, and record ticket sales were registered everywhere.
