Madonna has enraged Christian leaders after appearing crucified on stage during her new tour.

On the first night of her Confessions tour in Los Angeles on Sunday the Material Girl mounted a 20 foot high mirrored crucifix and sang her song Live To Tell.

The Church of England is furious with the stunt, accusing Madonna of abusing religious imagery.

A Church spokesperson says, "Is Madonna prepared to take on everything else that goes with wearing a crown of thorns?

"And why would someone with so much talent seem to feel the need to promote herself by offending so many people?"

Has anyone seen Rufus Wainwright perform Gay Messiah live?

When I went to see him last year at the Hammersmith Apollo, he did a similar thing, being put on a cross with roman centurions either side of him while singing Gay Messiah. It looked awesome.
