Belarus to Check Elton John Morality?


The Public Council on Morality asks organizers of Elton Johns concert in Minsk to provide it with records of the singers previous performances.

Interfax news agency learnt this from the Council head MikalaI Charhinets.

He noted that the Public Council on Morality had watched records of previous Rammsteins gigs before the bands concert in Minsk on March 7, 2010. "It was awful what we saw about Rammstein. We did the right thing by raising this question. As a result, the organizers asked Rammstein not to afford the things they did in other places," he said.

Charhinets also added the Council is not against the concert, "But we are again mockery of morality, mockery of our children who go there. We demand that obscenity, which both children and adults shouldnt see, not be shown. Well handle the matter."

What to the figure of Elton John, Charhinets admits he doesnt know this singer and is ashamed of this. "We will watch his records and then estimate him," he noted.

Commenting on a remark supposing said by Elton John that Jesus was a gay, Charhinets noted: "One judges people from his own point of view". "Some representatives of gay community want to attract as many famous people as possible into their fold, even if it is just words. Jesus Christ stood for love between man and woman. Adam and Eve belonged to different sexes, it is due to this fact that all people appeared in the world, including those who supports same-sex unions," Charhinets added.

Elton John plays a concert in Minsk on June 26 as part of Elton John's Rocket Man Greatest Hits Tour.
